"Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened" - Dr. Seuss...

... 6th March 1982...
...I've been wanting to create this LO of my "first wedding" for ages.  Naturally, I've tried to analyse this part of my life many times and in the end the only conclusion I can come up with is that "I was a (young) 19yo, in love with the idea of being married, kids and white picket fence - all part of the "journey to being me". The quote I've used is one of my faves, so no more dwelling - only forgiving.
I've taken up the May challenge over at Scrap Sanity   to lift Maria Featon’s amazing LO:-
LO by Maria Featon (click here for close-ups)
As you can see Maria's LO really is 'simply STUNNING. 
I have attempted to keep some of the elements in the LO, including the (home-made with my Spellbinders die cuts) flowers and the gorgeous Twiddleybitz c/b(FRA010 Circle Journal Frame), that I was lucky enough to win from Scrap Sanity during their recent Cyber Crop :)
Incidentally, my Mum recently sent me a piece of the 'original gown' lace she had kept, and I've popped it just under the butterfly.
The current challenge word over at Bird Is The Word is "SMILE" I thought I'd also share my LO over there too.  You should pop over and visit the Bird Is The Word's latest post - the Guest's designs are absoloutley AMAZING!!! Naturally, my friend Sam I Am is a guest designer and I just have to give her EYE CANDY MAGIC a huge shout here too :)


hand made by Mazz with "Spellbinders die cuts"
Supplies:
Sassafras pp (Life is Beautiful – your lovely); Twiddleybitz c/b (FRA010 Circle Journal Frame); Reeves acrylic colour (gold); Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (antique bronze); Prima mask; Ranger liquid pearls (gold pearl); Prima, Petaloo, Kaiser and Sullivan’s flowers, leaves and butterfly; home-made flowers by Mazz; unknown gold alpha stickers (title); lace from the original wedding dress; Helmar 450 quick dry adhesive; My2Angels cream scroll felt heart; vellum; home printer.
Well, thanks so much for popping over today...its really starting to look and feel like 'winter' here in Brisbane...cold, frosty mornings and nights. Now its raining and dark at 10am - lookin' forward to having coffee and home-made muffins with my friend Sammi, might be a good day to 'sort out' my scrap room too friends

Please leave me a message, to let me know you've visited....they honestly put a SMILE on my DIAL

Quote of the Day

butterfly kisses

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.
