First Scrapbook page "Cousins circa 1951"


Here's the link is to the rules of the "sketch challenge with a twist" at Mad About Scrappin! http://madaboutscrappin.ning.com/forum/topics/friday-night-in-sketch

This LO actually started as my Mum’s 10th birthday...and the tile was going to be “Its your birthday April 1950”, however I’ve discovered today from my Mum’s 1st cousin (Val, in the photo) as follows… “The photo you sent over was taken at Joyce (nee Marsden) Burgess’ wedding back in 1951. She would be a sort of step cousin. Her grandfather William Wesley Marsden married our great grandmother Catherine Johnson after our great. Granddad died. I remember all the children had their own table and I think there was another photo with more children but I'm not sure where that is now.
Back row- Family friend, Barbara, Alan, Noel, Ian and Malcolm.
Front row- Margaret, Valerie, Lynette and child from Burgess side”…
I have used everything from my stash, including very old orange C/S from Crafty Kids; pps that I bought when I first started scrapping in 2003 (Unicorn Design Stamp-It Australia and the shiny blue and magenta-Cuttlebug embossed- from a “Dora the Explorer” kit LOL), green scallop semicircle (Dejaviews); I also got to use some very old mulberry paper (unknown) and fibres (Forever in time). Other I am unable to identify because (back then in the ‘good ol’ days) they aren’t labeled. My ‘new’ items used are C/B title “Cousins” (Scrap FX) and the heart lollypop (Rachelle Minett); Inks: Versamark and Versacolor; Embossing powder: Top Boss (clear) and Utee (Blue); Flowers: MME (crocheted), Kaiser and Prima; Brad: Bella!; Pens: Signo Gel and Tombow; Trims: Bella! (Pink) And Rusty Pickle (orange); Rhinestones (Kaiser); Adhesives: Helmar 450 and scrap dots, Pritt gel, double sided tape and Magic Mount. TFL :)

My fairy

Your fairy is called Columbine Goblinglitter
She is a bringer of riches and wealth.
She lives in mushroom fields and quiet meadows.
She is only seen in the light of a shooting star.
She wears lilac and purple like columbine flowers. She has gentle green wings like a butterfly.
