My Let's Scrap DT Challenge 140

Hi everyone!

Happy Monday! Today I am sharing you with a layout that I made for my Design Team Challenge which came out on Friday.

I have been looking through my mom's old photos and grabbing the ones I want of her side of the family and I came across a newspaper clipping of my parent's wedding. I knew that this would be my DT challenge.

This week over at Let's Scrap, my challenge is to use a newspaper clipping on your layout. It does not need to have photos on it as well but it does need to use a newspaper clipping as well as a Let's Scrap sketch. I happened to have photos of my parent's wedding, so I did use photos but photos are not a requirement.

Here's my example for the challenge:

As I said before, I was looking through my mom’s old photos when I found this newspaper clipping of their wedding announcement. I absolutely loved reading it as there is a paragraph describing the details of her dress which you just don’t see the newspapers doing anymore!
In this paragraph it says, “The bride chose a gown of polyester chiffon, featuring a Queen Anne neckline and keyhole back. The bodice and upper sleeve were trimmed in raschel lace and seed pearls. Her A-line skirt with pleated front panel and lace edging at hemline ended in a full length cathedral train. Her veil of French illusion net was also trimmed with matching lace and seed pearls”.

I inked around the doily and pretty much everything except the photos with victorian velvet Tim Holtz ink.

 I went with a pink and brown  theme and since I didn't have pink flowers on hand, I took white flowers and inked them with the Victorian Velvet ink.
 Then I had to add tons of fun pearls to the centers and around the flowers to give it a touch of elegance.
 I used the Let's Scrap sketch 8-10-11 and I loved the funky title on it and I loved playing around with it and making each line different.
I also added 2 different sized pearls around the edges of my doily.

Thanks for looking and I hope you get a chance to play along with my challenge. You can check out the original challenge HERE.

Thanks again and have a good Monday!
