So I have been itching to dive in and use my July kit from The Crafty Alley The kit is absolutely GORGEOUS and full of all things Prima!!!  This sheet of paper is my absolute favourite and I decided to really go to town on it with a piccie for my wedding album!!!

The pic is of my sister walking me down the aisle in the church in Prague.  We were both a little sad as my dad passed away a few years ago so couldn't do the honours, but bless my big sister she travelled halfway round the world to be there for me!!!

I distressed and inked the edges of the page with distress inks. The photo is mounted on the frame in the page, I added the lace, ribbon, flowers, leaves and gems....ALL from the kit (did I mention it was awesome) and then some simple journalling about why my sister is the best!!!

am now itching to use the rest!!

Black and White

One of these days I will learn how to take a decent (and straight) photo of my creations.....but then given that I don't have a straight eye and I always stick things a little wonky, its probably better that the photos are a little wonky themselves!!!

anyhoo enough babble.....more crafty bits.  So my new Hero Arts goodies arrived the other day and I have been playing with them and am still in love with their stamps.  Was having a hop about the blogs and have seen a few black and white cards and thought that my new Exotic Bloom stamp from Hero Arts would work well with this.  I stamped it in black stazon, added a sentiment (also Hero Arts), mounted it on black card stock, which I mounted on a white card and added a few black gems and voila.....card done in 10 mins!!!

thanks for looking :o)
