This is my project for January's Round Robin Challenge.
My husband's brother got remarried last May, and I decided that as long as there was a professional photographer around, we should take advantage and get our photo done. It arrived earlier this month in the mail - nobody was in a big hurry either to get the order into the photographer or to get the prints to the people who ordered them - but at least it came and it turned out really nice.
I followed Carol - NMScrapper - this week. Her project is really gorgeous. You can see it here.
Since I wanted to scrap this photo, and since I needed TWO photos, I went digging around in my wedding album - I had to brush off the dust - and found this one. Gads we were so young and skinny back then! I scanned it, cropped it, took the color saturation WAY down - it's not technically a B&W, more of a pale pale pale washed out color - and printed it off the same size.
I wanted to also include this in my ABC challenge for this month - WXYZ - so I needed to create a few little odd ball elements. I found a nice yellow zipper in my stash and managed to get two flowers made from it. I found the other yellow silks in a box of old floral stems from Dollar General. So - W is for Wedding Photo, X is the cross stitching, Y is all the yellow elements, and Z for the zipper flowers.
It's also set up to play Marci's 5 ingredients Challenge. 1. ticket by Tim Holtz
2. red patterned paper
3. something angled - angled photograph
4. photo corners - on the journaling die cut
5. typed journaling - the quote is typed and printed onto a piece of patterned paper
I think that's everything. Thanks for taking a peek at my little project. I appreciate your comments SO much!
