YES i do

After a great vacation in France and Belgium, I've been scrapbooking again. Of course I couldn't live without scrapbooking/creating during the vacation so I made a special journal to write a bit about the vacation and create a sort of smash book. I'll show you this in a later post.
For now I want to show you the layout I made yesterday (with temperatures of 37/38 degrees Celius which is very uncommon here in the Netherlands) and finished today. It is my most favourite picture of my sister's wedding. This was right after they were married. Everybody stood outside and I had given them bubble solution (is that the right word?).
In this picture you can see the lovely reaction of the newly weds and you can see one of the guests really getting into making bubbles. ;) Also pay attention to the bubble that is just bursting right at the time this picture is taken (it is right between the newly weds).
For this layout I used paper by Pink Paislee I just bought last Saturday. I love it! I used some ink on it, but also left some blank (I love how you can see the glaze).
Behind the picture is an accolade shaped paper that I bought at Boekenvoordeel (a Dutch shop) and a label with two small roses on it.
Under the photo is a piece of lace my mum bought me (isn't it lovely!). On that are some chipboard letters by Basic Grey which I inked pink at the bottom and a few mini letter stickers by Jillibean Soup.
The round metal embellishment with vellum in it is by Making Memories. I stamped the words 'a love story' on it with Stazon ink. The stamp is by Prima.
The bubbles on the layout are there to resemble the bubbles in the picture. They are meant to use as decoration on a plate of candles for example. But I love to use them on layouts.
The last piece I added was the small banner that says 'just married'. This is a piece of the envelope the wedding card came in. I saved it to use on a layout and I thought it fitted on this one. The writing is done by hand.

Please leave your comments (I would really love to hear from everyone that is reading my blog!) and have a lovely week!

VW Beetle

I'm back with the layout I told you I was working on. I love how it turned out!
In the picture you see my sister with her husband getting to the chappel in their wedding car. :D I really love this picture. It's their last moment as unmarried couple.
For this layout I used strips of paper of all kind of brands. There is also some vellum like paper in between. On the strips I painted with some glimmer mist and I also splashed some mist.
The flowers are by Prima. The butterflies are made of wood and I bought them in a Dutch shop (Xenos). I also painted these with some glimmer mist.
I've altered the AC thickers by painting crackle paint over them. Because they didn't stand out from the background enough, I also painted the sides of the letters with black paint.

That's it for today. I hope to make more tomorrow, because guess what? My holiday officially started just now!!!
