Scrapping for me!

Well I'm having a nice time with Katy around after all - and I've set up a scrapping station at one end of the dining room table to get on with the mountain of kits sitting in my stash and trying to get some of the vow renewal pictures scrapped!
So - here we go with some pages made using my Total Papercrafts monthly kits, and some kits from the recent Kent crop day.

Here is the first one I made - a lovely bright page designed by Karen which will remind me of the gorgeous island where we renewed our vows - I don't know what it is about the Caribbean but all the colours are so much more vivid be it flowers, the sea, the birds and even the gaily painted houses. I think its all down to the non-stop sunshine myself! Anyway there's a secret hiding on this page - see that blue button below the photo?

Give it a pull and.......

out pop two photos of us all being silly while waiting for the paperwork and some photos to be downloaded to disc for us - I must say that going for a paddle in the lovely warm sea while hitching up a full length wedding dress and juggling a bouquet  is one thing I'll remember for a while....

Next up was this rather stunning dark background page, also by Karen - I think it Bo Bunny's Mama Razzi papers but I love it and it sets off the photo beautifully!

this next one is a design by the lovely Claire Fader - there's a lot more to it than meets the eye as the photo is actually a mini book which opens up

open the front cover to find.... the journalling (with the full story of why we renewed our vows where we did - remind me to tell the story on here sometime.....) and a great pic of me in my lovely dress (and don't let anyone tell you that nice wedding dresses don't come cheap - this one cost me a princely £26 on eBay - its all silk and is from Monsoon - original price was well over £200 and it had never been worn.....) it was absolutely perfect for a ceremony on a tropical beach.

and finally a couple of my favourite pics of the two of us.... including the must have "kiss the bride one!

The flowers are leftover ones I stamped for the SU Blog Hop pages - they were too nice to chuck away....

Here's another one from Claire.... the papers on this one are scrummy Webster's pages and I just lurrrrve that organza rose ribbon! That little block below the larger photo is actually a wee accordion book for the journalling

Finally for now - one from my monthly kit mountain - I think was one of the July kits (no- you don't ask where all the others are,  thank you very much!)..... I finished it up with some flowers left over from the fun & romance page up top, and added a chopped up pearl swirl with cute little clay roses  for the final touch.

Anyway - I'm off to make the most of the P&Q afforded by the fact that Rog is at work, and Katy is snoring gently having stayed awake all night! See you soon!
