With This Ring

Good day guys,

As you know I am also in a Layout challenge over at Paper Secrets and am loving that I am actually doing more and more layouts. Each week we are given an assignment for a layout. I really don't care if I win the contest, it's just helping me to do more layouts that I should have done a long time ago (or some new ones in this case). If you participate and follow the guidelines you advance to the next week. We started with 27 and 18 again moved onto this week. I will keep updating you as I go along. Who knows, I might not be able to participate one week and then I am out, but until then, I am scrapping my butt off, (they used a different word, but my blog is family friendly...hehehe

This week's sketch is this:
 and this is what I came up with:
and what's in red is what I used out of the items I was allowed:

hand or machine stitiching
3+ photo corners
3+ tags
altered or raw chipboard

I used SCAL and a file from Scrapping Table's Wedding theme for the dove and rings cut out of vellum.  I also cut the tags using my cricut.  I glued my pictures down onto some more scrap paper and created a pocket to put my tags in.  I inked around them to make them look a bit aged.  These pictures are of my mom and dad's wedding.  This group picture is of my parents with my grandparents on my dad's side and his siblings.  I am very happy with this layout and I am still going strong.  See you next week for another PaperSecrets challenge.
