Some Exciting Scrappy News!

I have been keeping a lil secret for a little while – and now I can finally share here.
Cool huh?  I must say I was pretty chuffed when the lovely Marelize contacted me to ask if I was interested – was I ever!!  LOL!
My gorgeous Guest DT pack came choc full of the lovely Prima En Francais Range – and I instantly knew it would be perfect for scrapping some of my vintage photos.  Here is one layout I’ve completed so far:
This photo is one of the most treasured I have – it’s my Nanna and Pa on their wedding day.  This marriage lasted 62 years – and only ended when Pa sadly passed away.  I dare say their life wasn’t the easiest, they had difficult times as well as happy times, but what I admire is they made it work – they put each other first, and adored each other until the very end.  Just beautiful.
Anyways, I have used:

Prima Marketing - En Francais - "Billets" paper. (Reverse Side)
Prima Marketing - En Francais - "La Chaise" paper.
(Reverse Side)
Prima Marketing - En Francais - "Vinetta" flowers.
Prima Marketing - En Francais - Wooden Buttons.
Prima Marketing - En Francais - Tiny Alphabet Stickers.

Of course, I have also used some WOW – Words or Whatever Chipboard.  Belle flourish C1223 and Whirly Flourish C889.  With both flourishes, I first inked them up with Distress Ink – Tea Dye, then used a script stamp to stamp a script image on to them with light blue chalk ink.  It is always good to used a solid ink, like chalk ink, when stamping a light colour onto a darker colour .
I then added some Kaisercraft pearls for to add a little vintage touch.
Here are some close ups:
Well, that’s it from me for a while – I have house cleaning and packing to do for the next couple of days!!
Take care, stay safe, and have a Happy Easter!
