Shimelle Laine at Two Peas Challenge - July 2011

Good Evening Crafters

Well if you saw my posting from last Wednesday on the WOYWW you will know that I was working on a layout of my Wedding as part of Shimelle Laine's 4x6 Love on Twopeasinabucket.com.  I finished it...

The idea of this layout was to include 7 photos (July = month 7) and one page of journalling.  As the whole album is devoted to my album I did not want to add any journalling so I added a message to my "new" Hubby using my lovely Silhouette!

I did an appeal for titles as it is getting harder having done a few wedding layouts already and the lovely Bella came up with this one.  The other titles which were suggested have been written into my little Ideas book and will come in handy for the rest of the album so thank you all who sent me suggestions and thanks Bella for this one. 

Again, I used my Silhouette to "write" the title, which I then filled in with Sharpies and after making a template using recycled packaging, I drew around the title and cut out.  (I will admit I did try putting it onto the die cutter but failed miserably - twice!!! Hence the template!)

You can see my Silhouette has been used for the little Love tab down the side of the picture.

All the papers are from American Craft as are the "words".  The butterflies are cut from a Martha Stewart punch.  The cardstock is Bazzill.  The stamp is Penny Black and I have used Black Soot and Broken China DIs.

Right, off to beddie byes now so good night and see you tomorrow when it is Wednesday!!  Nearly Thursday and NEC Quilt Show!!!  Please don't go without leaving me a comment.  It does make me smile and in the current climate we all need smiles!



My night's prayer go out to the brave men and women who are working to end the chaos that is going on in the UK - Police, Fire and Ambulance Services. xx

So glad I could help and I love the way you put the title on the curly bracket shape. Yes I am also praying for the UK and their brave men and women trying to sort out those thugs.
