Beautiful.

The challenge this month at Scrapsidaisy is to scrap a wedding photo, and include something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue...which is quite a challenge (thanks Julieann!)

Finding a wedding photo was the first challenge...mine are all still packed in a box, and I haven't actually been to a wedding in years. Then I remembered this photo of my sisters' wedding, which I had filed (ages and ages ago) in a binder along with the piece of American Crafts Metropolitan paper...and bonus, it has blue on it!

Something old? Apart from the paper, I used this Delish transparency from an almost empty packet in my stash.

Something new? I stocked up on ribbons for wrapping gifts a couple of weeks ago at the markets, so raided that box for this piece of white :) Something blue? The paper, but also the blue American Crafts rubon...that's the straight lines across the white photo mat. That only left something borrowed...so I started with a borrowed LO idea from Sketchmaps. Even though the LO ended up looking very little like the sketch, I figure that counts :)
Have you ever tried a scrap challenge? They are lots of fun, and can get you digging around your stash for all sorts of unexpected things :)
Have a great weekend!

Love the layout. I too like to use pagemaps every now and then especially if inspiration is low. I am off to have another brouse through all those books you leant me because I want to take something crafty away with me to busselton but want a break from paper so I think sewing just might be the idea. Hope your new house is going well. Maybe could catch up in the hols???
