I borrowed my daughters BIA to make this album. I cut the covers from artist mount board, painted and stippled with gold craft paint. A bargain at £1 a bottle from Tesco. Added a strip of yellow ribbon and corners cut with a cuttlebug die. Its still a work in progress as I am undecided whether to add lots of photos and journal on the tags or leave it for the happy couple to add their own. There are more pages, these are just a few to show the flavour of the album.

Wedding Belles

This is my latest Smirk page. The album is filling up nicely now, only 3 pages to go. I still have lots of smirk stuff left, so I might have to make a new album to use it. Will allow pics of the guys if I do.This one is girls only.

I have been trying out some new stamps. The flowers are not "proper" craft ones, they are from a 99p spray of artificial flowers I bought in Wilkinsons today.I just snipped as much as possible from the back and attatched them with ds tape.

You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents,
beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home
decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.

The tags on these cards were a mag. freebie. I had to add the ribbon down the side of the yellow card to cover my mistake. I tried to trim the paper before the glue had dried properly and it tore.The decoupage was also a freebie from the same mags 2008 calander.

Couldn't wait for the printer, so I did a digital page. The tartan is Hunter, which is my family tartan. most of the kilts and the brides band on her dress and her bolero were in this tartan.

This is a family group taken at my nephews wedding last Sunday. I am itching to scrap some of the photos but need to wait till we get a new printer tomorrow. The wedding was at Chatsworth House and was fantastic.
