MCF Scrapbook Challenge

Evening everyone.  I've been busy crafting this afternoon and wanted to share it with you.  I love joining in a few of the forums out there and today I set our second scrapbook challenge over on the Magical Crafts Forum.  I used a page map from PageMaps .

I've also set an additional theme.  As this is the month for lurve, I wanted to see "Something you Love!" .  This could be ANYTHING - a fav photo, a place, clothing, shoes, friends, pets, wildlife OR use a favourite technique, embellie or even colour!  Anything - as long as yer love it!!  This is what I came up with....

This is a photo of Emily and her best friend, as bridesmaids at our wedding!  I have wanted to scrap this for as long as I can remember, their little faces do make me laugh!  I would love to know what they're thinking...probably something like, "what DOES she look like!!" or, "what on EARTH is he wearing!!" LOL!

I love the burgundy and gold combi, as you can see from their dresses AND, of course, I love my poems and quotes!!  The journalling reads,
"It is rare that one can see in a little boy, the promise of a man, but one can almost always see, in a little girl, the threat of a woman!"

The quote is from some French fellow called Alexandre Dumas Pere, a French writer.  His middle name made me laugh too, or is that just me! LOL!

They're a wonderfully friendly lot over on MCF and have loads of challenges and swaps going on, from cards and scrapbooking to ATC's, tags, altered books and sewing.  There really is something for everyone so if you have time, why not take a wander over, we'd love to see you!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you like my page.  If you do have a go at this challenge, even if you don't join MCF, please come back here and let me know so I can come to your blog and see your make, I'd love to see anything you come up with if you have a go!!

Take care and happy crafting everyone.
