Feeling a Little Shabby...

Scrapbooking wise that is LOL:)

I stumbled upon a new challenge blog last week called Lets Get Shabby.
The challenge this week was to use this gorgeous pic to inspire a LO
So I created this....

I was totally inspired by the soft pinks and green and the darker browns in the background. I love the ruffles and lace and so used them too. The beautiful ladies inspired me to use this pic of my gorgeous sis on her wedding day. I could also imagine that these ladies would DEFINITELY be wearing pearls...can't you imagine them hiding behind the fans?
I loved the fans, and scoured the internet to find a way to create accordion folded flowers!
Tutorial for flowers found here

I love them. my new fave thing to create:)


So yeah..here 'tis again, cause I am 'clever' and managed to accidentally upload the same image twice *sigh*

Thanks for stopping by!
