First Dance


This layout is yet another inspired by my recent wedding (expect many more lol). It is of our bridal waltz and this particular photo was a favourite as we appeared really happy, despite hubby being a bit frightened by dancing in front of everyone. The day before the wedding, we had the quickest waltz practice in the loungeroom before he headed to his parents house.

I am entering this layout in the Let's Get Shabby Challenge #20 - Weddings (Talk about good timing)

Although weddings already have a strong love theme, this particular layout is particularly romantic for me. Our first dance was to Snow Patrol's 'Chasing Cars'. I have journalled the lines I love most in this song...' Those three words are said too much. They're not enough'. And it could not be more true on a day so emotional filled like a wedding, when the very day means so much more than a simple 'I love you'.

Also, this layout includes my first hand made flowers & my first hand written journalling. The flowers & the lace style border punch (Fiscars) are done with a sheet music pattern paper. I have also used a matching stamp behind the journalling.

Sorry one of the photos is side ways. Blame my phone. Please let me know what you think as I love comments :-)

Your Layout is lovely. Scrapping your wedding photos will bring back such lovely memories for you. Remember to write them down even if it's on the back of the layout. When years have passed, some details are scratchy.Have fun!

Your page is gorgeous and shows off your handmade flowers beautifully. I love your lettering and always journal on your pages so that all the little details are remembered, even if you hide it in someway if it's very private.

Thank you all. I hope the photo is a bit clearer compared to the original one. I still struggle with the embellishing side of things but I'm getting there. Same with the journalling. Each new layout challenges me to go a little further! xo
