Super Scrapbook Sunday

'Wedding Make-up'
I have to admit I went a bit overboard with the American Crafts 'Teen' products on this layout, but as I won them it'd be rude not to, doesn't mean I don't love it though! The only things that aren't American Crafts are the three felt buttons (top right) which are from a Crafty Templates Crafty Bales 'Carnaby Street' kit. I really love these stickers and rub-ons, they're so me.
The layout is from my wedding album, where I work there's a Mac make-up counter and I get on with the guys on there. Some of the them also work as freelance make-up artists so I got my friend Maddie to come to the hotel and do the make-up for me, my friend Ana and my niece Jess, who were my two older bridesmaids. A big thanks to Maddie as she did an amazing job, I felt and looked gorgeous all day.
I must say that I really struggled with these photos for ages because of the colours in them but I didn't want to convert them to black and white because I really loved Maddie's dress even if blue, purple and brown are a difficult combination. In the end this paper seemed to work, the white and blue of her dress were also in the paper, and thankfully multi-coloured paper can be quite forgiving even if the other colours aren't really there.

Don't forget everyone, the Scrap Weekly In 2010 challenge will be going up today on the blog so go and check it out.

  1. You're so right about the paper! It really does set off those photos well. I suppose the other choices would've been blue or white, but then that would have put too much emphasis on one person in the photos and not on the others.
    I think the layout works really well. Love the make-up rub-ons too.
