Wedding Pictures and Challenges

Hi Everyone I have had a full week of getting the house in order and the usual boring things of doing when one gets back from away ie grocery shopping, cleaning and so forth and I am back to being in my craft room and ready for some challenges.

First I would like to congratulate Papertake Weekly Challenge on being NUMBER ONE in the Crafting Blogs Wooohoooo how fab is that and well deserved, as there challenges are fantastic and very varied.

It also happens to be their 3rd birthday and they are holding a blog hop, go check that out and see what’s its all about. Their challenge for this occasion is to pick a favourite challenge from the last 3 years, now that’s a challenge as their are lots of my favourites in there.

I decided to go with Thank You from December 2009 challenge as I have lots of Thank You cards to make. I used a nessty to cut the image out and embossed round the edges, the flowers on her headband and dress I used a glitter copic pen the rest was coloured with Promarkers, flowers were glittered with Stickles, they are pale purple but they look black so do the gems in the corners and the bottom they are from Prima and the Punch is a MS.

The inside to match

I have entered it into a few challenges:

Papertake – Your choice from the last 3 Years

Die Cut Dreams - Recipe; 4 flowers, Gems, Emboss, I embossed my nesty & use a punch.

Spoonful of Sugar – Sparkle

Incy Wincy– Glitter and Sparkle

Basic Grey – Sparkle

Stamptacular - 5 Layers

Now a couple of wedding pictures, the first is of my hubby Brian and grandson Leandro.

Grandchildren together
