Once again, it is time to add another page to the family archives. The Lady Commander of Copics and I went into the caverns and found the old tome where the records are kept. After sifting carefully through boxes of yellowed photographs, we found some of our parents’ wedding and decided to use those to create the new archival entry.
I don’t make scrapbook layouts often, because I don’t feel I’m particularly skilled at them, but I guess that means I need the practice. For this page, we used some vintagey looking patterned paper and this weird “tissue-fabricy” type paper that I had procured at the Everything For One Brass Coin stand in the Market Square. I chose these papers because I felt they matched the autumn colours in the photos (my parents were married in October). With great difficulty I tore the fabric/tissue paper and added it to the side of the page.
The sentiment was cut from the “Dreams Come True” Disney cartridge. We used orange and green for the flower because it matched those super ugly flower things on my father's beloved Dart. (I also love that the front wheel doesn't have a matching hubcap - lol). It’s hard to tell in the picture, but the letters were embossed with my trusty “Swiss Dots” Cuttlebug folder and the orange flower was embossed with some floral patterned folder. That crazy silvery glittery plant life was from the depths of my sister’s stash...I’ve no idea from whence that originally came. Working on this earned me +70 LO exp points. I’ll need many more to actually level up though.
The happy couple will drive off into the following challenges:

With another page done, we carefully placed the ancient tome back and went to clean the dust from our tunics.
