Kodak Colour Bride

This a very rare and precious colour photo of my parents wedding.
As a child I looked through Mums beautifully presented wedding photos...each in it's own folder but they were always in black & white. It wasn't until their Silver Wedding Anniversary that I finally saw a colour photo when my Auntie Pam made a replica of Mums bouquet for the top of the cake.

I must have inherited this picture from Grannies house and found it the other day just as I was browsing for some inspiration to use on my Websters Pages papers.

These papers are so pretty that they need to be cherished and pampered and spoilt. I've said it before it's not always that easy working with an image on the page but don't be afraid of it and don't treat it like it's some floating object...I tried to incorporate the bodice theme into the rest of the layout and match the pewter colour with the butterfly etc. (stunning butterfly from Wendy Kwok scrapbooker extraordinaire)

My own little replica of Mums bouquet......I am tempted to make a blue horseshoe ornament for their next big wedding anniversary!!
My own little version of a dressmakers dummy covered in wired flowers and tulle,
The finished layout....gosh it's a great feeling to make something for me for a change!!

ps: shhhh don't tell anyone but I have got my hands on a stunning Websters Pages kit available in the UK right now!!

See you tomorrow for more...or you could pop over to Bubbly Funk and let you fingers follow your heart!

Love and technicolour photos

This is soooooooo gorgeous Ruth. I remember looking at my own mum's photo's and those bridesmaid dresses on your photo are very similar to hers (it was a fab style in those days - unlike those of today) Love the way you have done the dress makers dummy and the flower spray
take care

Yet another 'work of art' Ruth. There is something so special about family photo's from days gone by. I realise how good it must be for you to do something of your own as you are so busy with your design team stuff lately. x

Ruth...this is soooo beautiful...
Perfectly balanced.
You are so lucky to have such a beautiful photo of your mum.
You should put this in a frame, and hang it on the wall....
A beautiful heirloom for your daughter.....
