ekka winner 2011

The last 3 years I have enter the Royal Queensland show for Scrapbooking in the Teachers and professional section, and have been lucky enough to win each time. this is my entry this year which won.I think I will retire now undefeated...lol
I have lots of family wedding photos and wanted to use them, to showcase the history of wedding photos, If you look close at the photo on the second page of the bride standing, her bouquet is wilting, that is because you had your photo taken on the next working day, not your wedding day. Camera's were so bulky then you didnt take them on location. She is also leaning on the groom and his chair, he is sitting because the exposure took so long and you had to sit so still, it helped to have a chair. my we have come a long way..
I have used Spellbinders Rose Creations to make the flowers and added, some stitching, tulle and heavily beaded lace to highlight the wedding theme, I have also used pastel and muted colours to reflect the vintage look of the photo's and the colours of the times. hope you like
