is hosting the 2nd craft challenge.
she gave us a beautiful
vintage wedding photograph.
we then, were free to make
whatever we wanted!

Here's my creation:

This piece really means allot to me!

I used things from my own wedding (17 YEARS AGO) to create this.

The flowers on the left are from my veil.

The hanging pearls
& white clusters roses
were my earings, i just took
them apart.

The buttons & the music
paper are both vintage!


Thanks for the challenge!
it is a keepsake now!

4. Still on a high from my

WICKED trip, i finally did the

bingo card project from

and bingo pieces. and tons of German glass glitter!
