wedding fever!

so.... the big royal wedding was Friday.... I'm not normally a royalist at all... I dont really have an opinion on them at all to be honest but it was hard not to get caught up in all the wedding hype.
I did watch it all the way through. loved the dress, they both looked fab, the guests were weird and wonderful... Posh could have smiled at least but hey ho she wouldn't wanna wreck her image now would she!!! I am definitely no fashion goddess by any means but OMG... Beatrice could have looked a lot less moose like for the occasion!!! what was she thinking?!?!?!?! surely her sister could have had a whisper in her ear and said, you know what maybe you should leave off the moose hat??? save her all the embarrassment afterward????

anyways.... this put me in the mood for some wedding scrapping, haven't done any wedding pics ion a while and I have a million still to get through so what better time to slip a page in about our very own special day?not so grand or that for the prince and his new princess but perfect none the less. we did get married in a castle afterall :)

so I did a page..... based on the Kirsty Wiseman Wednesday night challenge sketch which I follow on facebook. see the link below for info.

and hers the page I came up with:

Smaller Details.
I based my page on Kirsty's sketch, and it all came together by accident if im honest. 
Pics came together first, and I chose them by looking through my pics box to actually seek out some that had small enough things on them that I could cut out with my 2" square punch lol. I usually only print my photos in 4x6 size and I was being lazy and couldn't be bothered to print new ones off in a smaller size so found things that I could use as they were.

The pics of my 'things' were perfect for this as I was able to show off the details that went into making our day special but without doing a massive page on each. altho it would be very possible to im sure. 
the colours were obvious, our wedding theme was lilac (pauls favourite colour) and cream the base paper screamed at me as I came across it in my box so had to make it work for me.
then I had originally chosen a full sheet of purple from my 12x12 selection, but then as it was only going to be a small part of the page I checked my scraps bag and in my purple part were these perfect finds. the circle had already been cut, obviously left over from another project so I didn't even have to work for it. I just roughed it up a bit and the same went for the strip.
the only bit of effort really that went into this page was the hand cutting around the flocked flowers at the bottom, but I love doing that so it wasn't such a hardship.

and well worht it for the final result which I am loving a lot!!!

thanks Kirsty for your inspiration.
