Only 4 sleeps!!!!!

It's been creeping up on us for 6 months and is almost here! I remember thinking 4 weeks ago, it's okay I have heaps of time! Needless to say the last 2 weeks have flown and the stress has hit big time! We've had a long list of things to do at home and at work, so there have been many sleepless nights and huge amounts of stress. Thankfully things are settling down and we are getting excited. It's our huge once in a lifetime trip, so we are cramming as much in as we can and want to see everything we possibly can. This time next week we will be in Dublin with our friends we are travelling with and gearing up for London. Can't wait!!

Needless to say, I've been getting so many layouts done in short spaces of time..... if only I could always scrap like that! I've been having to get super organised before I go on holidays!

So a few bits and pieces for you all for this week....

This one is a pic of my younger brother at a recent family friend's wedding, where he was the best man. I love this paper range and the background of the photo worked in so well. He hates having his photo taken, so I have to snap it really quickly and absolutely love it! We got some great pics that day. I have used Words or Whatever - WOW chippie. Using the music note Flourish Border (C822) and a Flourish from Flourish Set (C1016) and inked them both and then thrown on a coat of glossy accents.

Here's a few close ups..... I am so in love with these new Maya Road flowers! Yes I am a flower nut!
I'm really loving this range.... Here's another one. This pic is of my hubby and I at the same wedding. Again some yummy flowers and WOW chippie. I've used the Flourish 7 (C180) and part of the S Curl Border (C979). The flourish has been sprayed with a coat of Glimmermist and the S Curl border piece has been inked then sprayed with Glimmermist and then inked again. The Glimmermist colour wasn't quite what I was after, so when I re-inked, the glittery sheen stayed.

A few more close ups.....
Given how much I loved the pics from this wedding, I figured it fitting to actually scrap the bride and groom! Jason & Sue looked fabulous and it was such a wonderful (and slightly emotional) day. Sue did an amazing job matching all the purple aspects of the day perfectly, so I had to incorporate some purple in this one! Using WOW chipboard, I have used the "To Have & To Hold" title and part of the 12x12 Circle Frame Set (C828). I have inked up the title and with the cirle, inked then coated with glossy accents and finished with a sprinkling of super fine glitter for the bling effect.

A few close ups again....
I am loving some of the new ranges on the market at the moment! I'm such a flower girl and all the lovely WOW chipboard works so well with each page... don't forget to head over to the WOW blog and Facebook page to check out the rest of the WOW Design Team creations.
