Good afternoon are you enjoying the sunshine? It's glorious here I wish it was going to stay but it's ment to change here in Wiltshire this week. Typical for half term!!!
Anyway as you know I am on a scrapping roll and have managed a few more this weekend. Over on UKscrappers there is an inspiration and challenges board which I have been visiting quite a lot and trying to take part in as many challenges as I can.
There are two challenges I am submitting this LO to. Simple recipes which is here and the Uks house weekly challenge May week 3 here. The house challenge was to scrap a large event, use a non standard size photo and to use 3 items _ brads, buttons bling. The large event part is a picture of my wedding cake. I am a huge chocoholic and don't really like normal cake and I can't stand buttercream!! I knew straight away what I wanted. My MIL and mother were both whinging at me the whole run up to the wedding that it wasn't right I wasn't having a traditional cake and how it would be embarrassing........ Well they certainly had a shock when they saw it!! My cake decorator ( a friend) did a fantastic job and made all of the chocolates herself. It took a few weeks to make.
The larger photo is a spare photo I had. It was damaged so I thought the quicker it gets in to an album the better! I do have one in my official wedding album but I wanted one in my scrapbook too.
I have also added 3 pieces of bling.
For the simple recipes the colour combination to use was Mint Chocolate chip, Strawberry Ice Cream and Chocolate Ice cream which I managed. I have also used more than one type of alphabet. You had to add something from your most recent stash which was the heart dies. What I didn't manage to add was a grey or another neutral colour unless I can get away with cream??
Here is a close up of my gorgeous cake.
Thank you for visiting and if your looking for some inspiration or a challenge pop on over to UKScrappers.
