Sun Setting - Wedding LO

Em took some cool photos of the bridal party on the beach just as the sun was setting, before the reception.
I have used the lovely colour combo and sketch from this weeks palette at The Color Room. Most of the palette colours were in the photo, so it fitted well.The photo was also perfect for the triptych effect.
The paper and tags are from the Lost and Found range available at Scottie Crafts. Scotties also has lots of Prima flowers and twigs etc arriving soon also.
I was so excited because I got a call from the honeymooners yesterday....living it up in a resort in Mexico. I have to confess that I was starting to feel a little nervous not having heard from them, worrying that they may have been kidnapped by some banditios! LOL!! But, no, they are sitting by a pool drinking tequilas and eating fresh crayfish! C'est La Vie!!

For my second wedding LO I have used the sketch (plus purple and dressed up) from Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge and have made an embellishment to fit with the Challenge Me Happy challenge.
My embellie is the pleated ribbon...seam binding dyed with Distress Stains and pleated onto dble-sided tape

The pp is a HOTP Color me, a gorgeous resist paper, which I have inked two-thirds with
Distress ink. The transparent frame is a Glitz Design Peek-a-Boo.

Well, we had the most awesome weekend in Sydney for Lloyd and Jodie's wedding! There was not a cloud in the sky (for the first time in weeks) and a gentle sea breeze on Clark Island, looking across to the Sydney Harbour Bridge. After the ceremony we had a short ferry ride back to Watson's Bay for the reception at Dunbar House. The kids planned and organised the whole wedding and every little detail was perfect! We were so proud of them!
Soooo....... here is the first of, no doubt, many layouts!!! Unfortunately, I wont get the professional photos to scrap until after Christmas :( LOL!
I based this layout on this weeks sketch over at Sketchy Thursdays.
The clocks are Kaisercraft acetate shapes and the print circle, a Glitz Peek-a-boo.
The purple pp is from Basic Grey, Indie Bloom  and the slightly patterned paper is actually cardstock which I stamped with Milled lavender Distress Ink and the raised side of the TH Texture Fades, pocket watch, embossing folder. Using an embossing folder as a stamp gives quite a fun, weathered effect. Leave the folder open and press it onto your card. Have a go!

My last SGC post - so sad!

Sadly this is my last layout for the Southern Girls Challenge. After a year on the team, I am stepping down, but there are so many new girls joining the team, that there will be endless inspiration! Of course, now I get to enter the challenges and still enjoy the fun, but I will miss the very chatty, friendly girls on the team!! :(

The topic this fortnight is 'Slugs and Snails', so pop on over to Southern Girls and join the fun!
Well, Lloyd's big day is this weekend! We are heading off early tomorrow morning.
I am so excited!!! Hope the weather is kind, because they are having the ceremony on a little island in Sydney harbour and then back to the mainland for the reception.
Soooo.... lots more wedding layouts coming up!!

I Believe Using The Color Room Palette #78

The Color Room puts up a new beautiful palette each week. I have been looking at them for a while and finally got a chance to use one! The colours fitted perfectly with the new Glitz Design goodies that I got from Scottie Crafts last week.
The last couple of days I have been playing around in Photoshop...Its so annoying when you forget how to do something you have done before!! LOL!! No, darlings, age has nothing to do with it! LOL!
Anyway, I worked out how to get rid of a busy background and put some cool colour in its place!! So rapt!
I am loving the new Glitz Designs embellies.. the bling, the What-nots and the Glitzers! They work well with Prima papers too.
The bow, rayon seam binding, and the lace I have dyed with TH Distress Stains. 
TFL! :)
Have a great weekend! Back to watch the rugby! LOL!! Go the All Blacks!!!!!!!!!
