Gee, time really flies so incredibly fast! Once again it's Friday, which means release time over at both TCR in Australia and CCG in the US.
TCR palette #60 is a sweet and romantic one, just savour Barely Pink, Lilac, Rose Bud and Pale Mint. Miss Marple is in heaven!
Having written that, I got an image flashing in my mind; do you remember the 1990's BBC sitcom "Keeping Up Appearances" with brilliant actress Patricia Routledge as the main character Hyacinth Bucket (who insists her last name is pronounced "Bouquet")? I just loved it! Hmmm ... Hyacinth or Marple?!
With romance and the sweet mild hues in the palette in mind, I thought I would scrap one of our wedding photos from May 2000. The photo shoot took place in a sun dappled glade just off the little chapel of Djursholm in Stockholm when Mother Nature was basking in the glory of her own delicate abundance.
Here's my second layout as RDA:
Well, it's obviously me to the left and DH in the middle. The girl wearing the wreath is Emelie, my stepdaughter whom you've seen in some of my pages before. Here she is only 12 years old, a gawky very long-legged girl soooo deeply disappointed that I didn't have a loooooong veil and looooong train just the likes she had seen princesses have on TV .... but she was rather pleased with her flower wreath and the ring pillow she was entrusted with. Spreading rose petals during our exit also made up big time for not getting to carry my train. :))
All the papers used are from the Melissa Frances 5th Avenue line. Couldn't help piling it on ending up with a rather chunky page despite little distressing treatment made.
We recently celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary in what else than - pink champagne of course!
This time I only fussy cut the flowers in the top, used 2 of the same paper and pop-dotted the cut-out detail over the same detail. Some Prima blooms and a snippet of an old Prima Holiday Lights. I just love Webster's Pages new stick pins, got one stuck in together with a pearly one in this cluster.
More Prima's in the cluster.
I was rather worried when the Icelandic vulcano started spewing out its clouds of ash and the air lines in northern Europe started cancelling flights. Seems things have calmed down now though. Monday sees the Sandbergs on their annual trip to swinging London, UK! YAY! Will be back next Friday folks!
After a bonanza of romance, I would like to leave you in a glorious explosion of bright, dazzling colours and a lingering sweet taste of spices. Dear friends, come with me on a magical visit to India and the blog of my sweet scrappy friend Anupama, just click HERE for a tour with the First Lady of scrapbooking in India!
Much love xxx Eila
