Alfreda's Romantic Wedding

 
This is my first attempt at shabby chic.  I used Graphic 45 Romantique paper collection.  I cut the beige mat out from one piece, edged it with distress ink, and placed it on the Romantique/butterflies paper. There are two different patterned papers behind the wedding photo. And a hidden journal tag.  I cut out and added 3 brides and 3 butterflies.
Most of the supplies were in the Pages In Time February kit.  I used the PIT store blog February 4th sketch.  The darker brown flowers with netting and beads are Petaloo peonies. Many of the other flowers are Prima.  I think I used up all of my glue dots and foam pop dots on this layout! LOL

For the Gingersnap Creations lace/fibers challenge, I have on this layout:  a strip of lace across the bottom, a fiber twisted rope in varigated colors of pink and beige entwined with pearls woven in between the flowers, lots of texture on the various flowers including netting, two different ribbons, and a piece of tatting which I think was made by my aunt who's in the photo, my mom's oldest sister.  

Challenges for this layout:
Coordinates Collections Winter Crop: CC#2 Tea:  my take on it: vintage tea stained doilies
Pages In Time February Shabby Chic challenge to use pink and white
Gingersnap Creations GC42: Lace/Fibers
Simply Scrapping Crafts Love is in the Air February challenge:  This is a March 1st Featured Photo!
