Once upon a time... it rained and rained and rained

and rained. So much so we abandoned our trip to the safari park this weekend. Fingers crossed for some better weather next weekend as I was really looking forward to meeting the meerkats - simples. All was not lost though, I completed another page for my honeymoon mini book and the front cover too!

Ever since taking part in Shimelle's Something from Almost Nothing class I have adopted a more is more approach to my scrapping (as opposed to my usual 'I couldnt possibly use more than one 'good' embellishment on one page!' approach). I am really enjoying the results and seeing my supply pile shrink while my albums expand full of gorgeous supplies is really quite rewarding.

With this in mind I went to town with the front cover for my honeymoon album. Supplies include; DCWV Once Upon a Time, Prima Marketing blooms (3 of them, count them not 1, not 2 but 3!), Maya Road chipboard Mr & Mrs, gems, ribbon and a sparkly heart ribbon slider.

For this page I had intended to include lots of sayings from the Haunted Mansion ride in the Magic Kingdom but the page just didn't work out that way but I have lots of ideas for other Haunted Mansion pages including; Your ghost host, 999 Happy Haunts, Grinning Ghosts, hurry back ... don't forget to bring your death certificate!, We're dying to meet you! thanks to the girls on UKScrappers.

Supplies for Foolish Mortals (thanks to Sarah for the title) include DCWV, Prima Marketing, and Adornit. I've inked the edges of the papers, alphas and the flower to age it a little. Look out for hidden Mickey's too.

Thanks for stopping by. Kxx

  1. WOW Kirsteen! I can't believe you used all 3 of those gorgeous blooms on the 1 page. It looks fantastic. How did you do your Once upon a time title?
