Scrapbooking pages , started at the Excel show

This is my best friend Marj getting married in 1965, I am 16 & she is 18 . The little girl is her sister in law .
I used the beautiful oyster blush capsule range from DoCrafts , they have a lovely pearlescent  glow to them.
I used a metal buckle shape and lace with a button all from Madame payroud range. The ruffle is from the oyster blush range , flowers are die cut & spritzed with a mixture of cardinal red & hematite artiste spritzing inks.
I sprayed them on to a large acrylic block and added some water. Dunked and dipped my flowers in, then scrunched them up whilst wet, opened them out and left to dry. Buttons added to the centres. The white frame is a white card front embossed with a square embossing folder with roses on it, softly inked with pink and brown ink pads.
The letters are stickers from Madame payroud also.
This page was made using two 12x12 pages from Gorjuss girls range. The centre is cut from the darker one to create a frame , edges are distressed with scissors & inked. The brown stripe paper is placed under the frame.
This is lightly spritzed in places with hematite spritzing ink.

I cut a smaller piece of green from the pack and after adding my 3 photos I stamped the top right of the green and bottom left with purple artiste ink pad , using stamps included in the gorjus girl stamp range.
A green bow is added on the top left to accentuate the green in my photos.
There are also a couple of toppers added to the page, the heart tag and the journaling tag are cut from the inside of the paper pack.
On the bottom left I cut a small square topper from the paper pack & topped this with a cute bottle top embellishment .


I do appreciate you taking the time to add a comment, thanks i love reading them all :-)
