Hey There Flower Girls!

A few weeks ago Charlotte was in my cousins wedding as a Flower Girl.  The other flower girl was my cousins daughter.  Good thing they had each other to keep entertained!

I created this page for a challenge I issued at My Scraps & More for the Got Talent contest.  My challenge was to use a black background and bright colors.  These My Mind's Eye papers were perfect!

I started my designed based on this large doily border chipboard piece.  I covered the centers with other patterned papers and some brads and other elements.  On the background of my page, I swiped some white paint with a card.  You can see here that I actually used that white base as a spot for my journaling.

Under the doilies, I layered some banner pieces and stickers.

Behind the photos, I layered some patterned papers (one of which looks like a lot of papers layered, but it is actually just one piece of paper.  Then there is some stitching, enamel dots, brads, and other small chipboard pieces!

This was really a challenge for me because I mostly use white or light colored backgrounds, but I love the way it came out!  And you KNOW I have a ton of wedding photos to scrap, so you'll be seeing those up soon!  :)

Stay scrappy my friends!
