Prima swirls and bling titles - I love Sparklies!

Anyone that knows me, knows that I love my sparklies. This can take shape in the form of glitter, diamantes, irridescence, holographics, metallics.. oh I am practically making an order for another fix of pretties right now!

I have been so busy with Scrapbook Apprentice work and it has been a great excuse to not do anything.. but when Katie left us a week without a parcel.. what could a girl do.. I had to scrap.

I haven't scrapped my family for so long now so I really enjoyed digging out a picture from the wedding and finally using a quote I had saved. The moment I saw 'Did you know that I was waiting for you? To love you for the rest of my life?" It really rang true in my heart but it's a long story!

I've had these blingy words for a long time now and the flourishes just kicked me into maximum sparkly overdrive. I haven't been able to use my own antique style for so long now as the materials I was sent were too bright so it was like slipping into a pair of comfy old shoes and getting aquainted with an old love.

The second layout needed some butterflies just to convey how this little bundle of preciousness makes me feel. I have added some concealed journalling (I don't do picture books!) but the picture speaks a thousand words to me.

If I didn't use all pink she would kill me. For sure.

I hope the sun has been shining in your life wherever you are. I am thinking of running a giveaway soon, so watch this space. My heart has been so full of love from my friends lately that I seem to be giving away like crazy and I'd love to give something on my blog.


♥♥ Mel ♥♥

I don't know why but when you said wedding I expected you to be in purple for some reason.
