Royal Wedding Blog Hop

John and Edna Dennis December 29, 1951


Good Morning and Welcome to Heidi's wonderfully planned Royal Wedding Blog Hop! If you have arrived here from the lovely and talented Joanna @ http://scrap-making.blogspot.com/ ... you are in the right place!! From here you will be hopping over to visit my super talented daughter, Angelica @ http://www.handmadebyangelica.com/

For the hop, Heidi asked us to scrap a page or create a card that had something to do with weddings, love, romance, etc... I started painting a pink castle but I would have had a hard time putting my Dad in there and my Mom too for that matter, I don't know that my Mom is particularly fond of PINK.. LOL.. Black and red seemed fitting to use with the black and white photo. Love all of the pictures and hope to have this ready for my Mom soon. My Mom and Dad were an awesome couple and always so much fun. We are a blessed family in so many ways!

Leave a comment and sign up to follow (if you would like).. I will pick a lucky winner to win three packages of our newly stocked Nestibling by Monday. Please make sure I have a way to find you in your comment!!

For my project I used:
Tim Holtz Grunge Board Album
Spellbinders Grand Nestie
Sizzix frame
Black and Red Cardstock
R39 Copic Marker to shade the frame
Nestibling (available tonight on PKS!)
and Heart Crystals

In case you lose your way, here is the full line up:
