Cool, Calm & Collected ... NOT! - 1-2-3 Challenge Blog (November Challenge)

This months challenge over at 1-2-3 Challenge Blog, was a real challenge. I loved the colour and the technique but using the word "Cool" was doing my head in, until I saw some photos taken by my friend last week while I was getting ready for my wedding ... and inspiration struck! But before I show you my page I'll show you the challenge for November ...
 And here's my page entitled "Cool, Calm & Collected"....
The paper I've used is Kaisercraft "Secret Admirer" which I've cut out and mounted with liquid scrap dots.
The flourish under the scroll as well as the butterflies are Kaisercraft stamps which have been stamped onto acetate using Stazon Ink and then cut out. 
The butterfly at the top left hand side also has the same butterfly stamped on a book page and cut out then doubled up to add dimension.

The scroll contains the journaling and is tied with a piece of ribbon from the bridesmaids dresses. The journaling reads:

  "These photos of me taken on the 1 November captures so many of my emotions. This is the day that I was to marry my childhood friend & other half of me. Born two days apart in the same hospital, our lives have crossed many times over our 37 years but finally we are waking life's path side by side.

It was the most special of days and although my father and siblings chose not to be there my true "family" were once again by my side.

Until next time,
