Forever.....

Forever is a long time isn't it?! That word seemed perfect for my project I was working on! This past Friday when I participated in a "Virtual Scrapbook Night" the guidelines were "black & white" for referee's and other football type of things! If you weren't into football (umm, that would be me!) then anything black & white would work! Soon as they said those colors I remembered I had a picture I had copied of my parents cutting their wedding cake. It was going to go into "my" scrapbook eventually so, why not now! Anyway, here is my interpretation of their Black & White theme;



Edited 02/12/08 - Picture was removed for publication! YEP! It's going to be in an "On-Line" magazine! YEAH!!!

The solid color paper is SU, don't remember where I got the black and creme DP, the ribbons are from Michael's and from a scrapbook store, the flowers are from the wedding flower tins at Michael's and the bling is from Michael's $1 vortex/spot! I also got the vellum words at Michael's! I used the SU stamp set "Baroque Motifs" for the bottom and the punch is an old Fiskars punch I have had for while! I never really used it until I saw someone demonstrate a neat idea with the new SU scallop punch not too long ago! I thought why not use it in this layout! I like it!

Well I hope you like it!

Until next time.......
