*Project Monday*

I'm not a Royalist but on Friday I felt the need to document the wedding for my scrapbook albums, throughout the ceremony I clicked away at the TV and managed to get lots of nice pics of the happy couple..... I had been thinking about how I was going to scrapbook these and then this morning, whilst reading the Scrapagogo blog, I fell upon a gem!


...this layout is scraplifted frrom Nicola - you can see it here, my take on it has a few small changes to it....


...like the flag stamp. I now WISH I had purchased the stamp with that months kit...BUT I didn't so I had to improvise and come up with something else as I still really wanted a flag border!


I took out my coloured pencils and found a white that has shown up beautifully... and I sat and hand-drew the flags. It didn't actually take that long in the end and I found it quite therapeutic {I used to LOVE colouring in as a child!}

What do you think? Is it patriotic enough? *wink*

A lovely layout Rachel! You did a great job. There's an article at Paperclipping.com today about documenting world/national events and you've done just that!

Very patriotic page! We went to a red, white and blue party on the friday afternoon so I plan to scrap a photo from that to document the wedding too. x

The flags are a touch of genius.

Awesome page - might have to do a copy of the design myself. I definitely want to scrap the event given these things don't happen very often!

There's so much I love about this! The red twiddle border totally rocks and I love the flowery blue paper too - very vintage and totally right for the English Country Garden celebrations.
