One Fine Day

Sketch Challenge

Here is ScrapFriends sketch challenge for June & I am loading mine at the 11 hour!! 
Somehow this month has just flown!

Here is 3 aged & original photos of  my bridesmaid Tricia, & my mum & moi on my wedding day.  These photos are scanned in to play with & perfect again, but I have just wanted to use them - bad colour, 
warts & all!

And I wanted to make a 'retro' styled page too, so choose mauve papers, and tones with some fabulous Tattered Inspirations ephemera & a lovely sprig, as well as some lovely shiny satin ribbon.

My wedding dress was light blue, but these photos are faded & marked & still fabulous to me. It is the memories they carry.

Thank you for taking a look,

I'm a true blue lad

Here is my LO as I am joining in to 



This is the loveliest photo of our little Benni when he was just 1 year old at Alexandra Headland - a little park with swings while we were on holidays.  Now Benni is all grown up & can you believe that he just loves Alexandra Headland...

I really enjoyed using my new Big Shot dies I purchased recently from Ebay - from - 4craftssake2011  they were so easy to use!

Thank you for looking, hugs xxx

Faithful Friend - CASE Study #94

The most terrible weather to take photos is at my home this week, & I dont have a light box as yet, but here is my card from the inspiration of a great Australian card maker Joy Taylor at CASE Study this week.

I really loved this card plus Joy's inpirational card, as well as the Design Team...

There certainly was not much light coming through my windows this morning...let's hope the sun peeps through in a day or so!

Thank you for looking, hugs xxx
