Our Wedding Day and Color Combo's Galore Challenge 205

I LOVE this challenge blog! So very sweet!! Very inspiring..

Pulled this photo out of my little box of odd photos. I don't think I even used it in my wedding album. I have been working on a scrapbook using older photos. They are so much fun for walking down memory lane. I am not making a huge book, but some highlights. Just fun stuff.

Anyhow, they were also asking that "mesh" be used on this page. I didn't have any. I had to go out and beg some window screen off the hubby! I tried to spray it up with paint and glimmermist, but didn't get the nice coral color I wanted. But, I do like the contrast, texture, and also how it looked when I tore it just a little!!

My other favorite part of this page was making the paper lace that runs down the edge. Not to mention the misting with the stencil. Most of all though, it's fun trying to find bits and pieces that match the colors for the challenge and the photo!

Come play along!

And for those of you that follow my blog and have left me all sorts of nice comments out there, you ROCK! Way to make a girl feel like a queen!
