Scrapbook page

Kirsty Wiseman runs a Facebook online Cyber Crop page which she used to host via Ustream weekly.  She's set a sketch and a recipe to follow and we'd crop along to her chitter-chatter while we scrapped for 2 hours between typing little notes, quips and giggles in a live chat.

With Christmas and other things that Kirsty's been busy with, she's not had the chance recently to lead the group, so I hijacked it this week with a sketch and recipe.

I wanted to see the following in my recipe:

White background.
Square photograph.
2 different patterned papers.
Chipboard embellishment.
Sentiment and handwritten journalling.
3 brads or buttons.

I chose one of my wedding photos from way back when I was young (20 years old) and slim (size 8).

My chipboard was in the form of some Cosmo Cricket Blackboard and my numbers from Thickers.  The cream ribbon was almost the same colour as my dress which I gathered and ruffled one side while leaving the other end smooth.  This was simply stapled to my page.  I chose a black flower and black numbers and flower accents to contrast with the white background.  I also double matted my photograph onto white and then black.  I chose subtle papers from Prima's Shabby Chic Collection (thanks Steph!) and picked accent colours up from that for my crochet flower and paint streaks. I also used a patterned paper tag from DeLish Designs.  I don't do white space, hence there's not too much here but I did try and keep it to a minimum while still making it lush!
