There has not been a lot happening in my little scrapping world mainly due to a substantial dose of cold/flu for the past 9 days however on keeping up with sites online there have been a few exciting announcements. The very talented Sonya from Pickles Patch is going to be a busy lady as she is involved in both.
First there is a new site Birds of A Feather Create Together created by Sonya and Carol Noakes for inspiring techniques and challenges. The first challenge is here and I am looking forward to trying out the Rusty Paper technique which will go well on heritage layouts. Up2Scrap have announced their new launch for 2011 here.
Prima have their November BAP up. (I didn't get time to do the October BAP so have this one at top of the list.) Did you see the Prima Floral Jewellery blog post? Their beautiful flowers are so versatile. I had intended making a fascinator for the wedding - I have all the materials required but this did not eventuate however I ended up altering the little bag I used and also included Prima as the 'something blue' on the garter.
The little 'Good Luck' silver ingot is the something old and found in her late grandmother's jewellery bits so it was nice to include this as she passed away in November last year.
And some more creative bits we included.
- Aisle DecorationsThe favor boxes filled with lollies doubled as place name tags and the EK Success punch used on the invites was repeated here as on the candles below. We were pleased with the black, white and lavender theme for the venue.
I am looking forward to Tuesday night when I get to see the professional photos. It is hard to believe it was only two weeks ago. Now I must go and reorganise my scrap room so I can get creating again.
Thanks for visiting. Have a great weekend.
