I for In Love

The current ABC Challenge is I for In Love

I am also entering it into the Word Art Wednesday challenge #70 anything goes

Last week I was sorting through some files and I came across some photographs of Mum & Dad's wedding and I thought that they would make a lovely scrapbook page                                                                                                

I've had the paper in my stash forever and I can't remember whose design it is.  No multiple papers or fancy mounting from me, I'm a  'keep it neat and tidy' kinda girl lol Flowers are from Prima with the centres being Card Candi.  Horseshoes are cake decorations and the lace, ribbon and braid are from my stash. Pearl sprays are again from stash with the tiny flat backed pearls being from Anita's.  The lettering was computer generated and printed on to Safmat from Letraset  I then cut it out as close as possible to the words and numbers and burnished them down.  I really love using Safmat as my writing is horrendous lol

Behind this photo is a tag for my journalling.  Granddad was an Air Raid Warden during WW II in Liverpool.  He saw some horrific sights in the aftermath of the bombings which affected him deeply, to the extent that he lost all his hair.  He always wore a cap outdoors and because he wouldn't be able to wear his cap in church he bought a wig and continued to wear one until his death.  We grew up seeing him both with and without the wig but we all have a lasting memory which we smile about to this day.  In later years Granddad had diabetes and Nana would lift his wig and rub his head, to see if he was getting hot if she thought he was likely to have a hypo, and plonk it back down at any angle!!  He did look funny to us as children 

definitely in love!

We have no idea who the small bridesmaid is but the outer ones are two of my Dad's sisters and the other one is my Mum's sister

I don't know who everyone is on this photo but I have written on a tag, which is behind the photo, the names of the people that I do know.


  1. Oh! I love the pink and white!

  2. These photos are amazing, Margaret. They made a wonderful scrapbook page. I LOVE the cascading bouquets. Great photos and an amazing layout, and I'm SO grateful that you've shared this with us in our challenge this week.
    Blessings to you,

  5. Dear Margaret,
    Such wonderful memories. Thank you for sharing the lovely scrapbook page!
    Have a nice Sunday,
    Greetings from Liv

  6. This is gorgeous. I have been very tempted lately to see if the residents would like to scrapbook their old photos like this, especially as, like the one you mentioned, people forget who some of the people are in the pictures.

  7. Lovely layout, I love how the lace compliments the pretty pink papers.

  8. Sweetie, this is fabulous...absolutely stunning design.


  9. A lovely page. The photos really stand out against the pink paper. A lot of lovely memories for you!
