Scrapbook layout...Hurrah!! Tea On Tuesday. Flutterbies!

Hello there!


Brrrr!  My craft room has been shut up all day and with no heating on it sure is cold when I come in!!  What we do for the love of our art ey!

Last night I finished off a layout that I started on Sunday, my first in months!!  So I am sharing it today with my trusty morning cup of Glengettie tea....

 What? You want to see the layout?  Oh! Go on then!!

Not the best shot for some reason as my camera has obviously focused on something.  I cannot take the photo now as it is too dark and the colours will be pants.

Some small close ups for you..



 And now one of  my favourite photos of the day...soooo long ago.  You see I love my headdress.  When I got married tiaras were just coming in and everywhere I went with my Mum to try dresses on the assistants kept insisting I had a tiara but as far as I was concerned, I had lots of those as a girl in my dress up box and so I wanted a grown up headdress.  I got my way, as you can see, even if the stroppy assistant had to order it in specially as the one in the shop had some pearls missing and it was grubby!!  I only planned to have one wedding and so I was having it my way!

I have to say, the upload of this post has taken so long thanks to BT that my tea has now changed to hot chocolate.  Over an hour just to upload the photos.  I hope you like them!

Off to link up with Elizabeth at Tea (or cocoa) on Tuesday as well as Mrs A for the Butterfly Challenge as it is a Valentine theme, and as usual the Snippets Playground as there are Snippets galore in here.  The rub on "You are my everything" is positively ancient and one of the last ones on the sheet so definately some VOS!! I am also joining the Cuttlebug Mania challenge as they are looking for I heart you.  I think this might count!!  I have used lots of die cuts on this layout. If you want to know about anything specific (I lost the will to live and list everything with this internet), ask away!

I shall now be resetting the internet and possibly shoving it somewhere so will be calling by later after that has been done and I have stopped chewing my desk!! 

Thanks for calling by!

Lovely scrapbook page! The thought of a big wedding gives me fits. :) That's why we eloped. You did look beautiful and very happy.

You just managed to flutter in by a nano flutter. So glad you did. Love all your butterflies on the journal page and I quite agree that your headdress much out tops a tiara anyday. Hugs Mrs A.

Gorgeous photo's and a great layout and love the chloe stems.
Poor you having to work in a cold craft room, you should have been in my house at 7.40 a.m. on Saturday morning, didn't get myself warm till 8 p.m.
Guess what... no photo's, yes we did take the camera and only took about 12 photo's of which 11 will be deleted. Ukk, I really shouldn't go out in public if that is what I really look like.

Sam, this is gorgeous. I absolutely adore this layout, even though I don't scrap. You look so happy, and I'm glad you stuck with your guns and got the headdress you wanted.

Thanks for sharing your tea with us for T this Tuesday. BTW, as for a cold craft room, I was working in mine and noticed my white glue had frozen at some point and was now separated and thick.

Ariel said...

Gorgeous layout...and I love the headdress story.

What a beautiful layout to celebrate your wedding! I love the photos and my eyes went right to the flowers and your headpiece. You were so right to do your day your way, as I did. I made my headpiece from parts of my Mom's dress which was very special to me. Thanks for sharing on T day.

Divers and Sundry said...

I love the design on your mug.

I'm sorry it took so long to upload your photos, but I'm glad you persevered. Sweet! :)

Di said...

Oh this is beautiful Sam! Fabby photos and you did right not to go for a tiara :)

You could also enter this into Cuttlebug Mania where it's 'I heart you' as the theme - so long as the die cutting/embossing machine you use is manual it qualifies.

Hugs

Hello and Happy T Day a little late. Your layout is gorgeous and so are you in your dress and headpiece, so love it. The colors are so pretty with the white of your dress, it pops nicely. YAY for finishing a page, I haven't scrapped in a long time either, have been wanting too though.
Have a good week.

I'm so glad I popped back to Elizabeth's to see it anyone else had posted, and I'm so gld that I did. Your layout is very classy and you were quite right to want your head-dress your way; it is quite, quite beautiful.
Happy belated T Day :o))

lisa said...

Gorgeous LO and such beautiful photos, Sam. Your headress is perfect. My shoes were my extravagance at my wedding, I just loved them and I still think they were the most expensive shoes I've ever bought...but well worth it.
Hope you've bashed the internet into shape, lol.
Hugs Lisax
