Wedding Card

Today I made this wedding card for my neighbours who are getting married on Friday. They have been living together for about 5 years but have finally decided to tie the knot  - yay :)

I've not made a wedding card before.........

I really enjoyed it and am already planning the next one - I just need someone to get married now !!! :)

Creative Craft World - October Scrap map challenge

Here is the page I created using the sketch on Creative Craft World - the challenge blog.
In the centre of the photo is William in the Goonhavern Pre-school race on sports day. I can't remember if he won or not on this day (terrible mother!) There were at least 2 in his class at school who were very fast so even though William was good he never got a chance to win :( Didn't stop me being proud of him for giving it his best though xxx

 This is the sketch

and the challenge can be found on the blog here

UKS Weekly challenge layout

I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted on here - where did September go?? I think there is a bad fairy somewhere stealing my days :)

Anyway here is my October week 1 challenge page

This is all 3 DSs on one of the rides at Legoland c. 1998.  I don't like the high rides very much so Nick went on with his dad, while the other 2 sat together. I probably would have been alright on this though - it's the ones that go upside down I don't like!

The challenge was to use 3 lots of 3 embellishments - I used 3 buttons, 3 blingy stars (top right) and 3 punched stars). Use blue and NO pink and use an everyday object.........which is why -

the punched stars were made from a coke tin ...
 which I then coloured with yellow, orange and blue ( and a little dab of copper) alcohol inks :)
