Rosie D's Challenge Blog

Rosie D is a new challenge for me and I really wanted to do a scrapbook page for it. However, my photographs are inaccessible to me until Mr Blogger gets home Friday to sort it all out. So, I've decided to enter a LO from MIL's heritage album I did for her. This is a photograph at her wedding in 1952. I used a cream background paper (can't remember whose) and picked out some of the wording with a black Marvy Le Plume pen. The photograph was matted on to both black and chocolate cardstock. The ribbon, for me, is the little cherry on top. Both it and the heart embellishment were from my stash. The ribbon slide is from Making Memories. The leaves of brides corsege were subtley tinted green in photoshop though that won't show up in the photograph. The quote was done in Word and reads, "Life gives us brief moments with another.....but sometimes in those brief moments we get memories that last a lifetime". Anon

Many thanks for stopping by. I'm back at work tomorrow but hope hope you all have a great day whatever you're doing!!
