Lots to Do - Ribbons and Lace

This is my entry this week for the Lots to Do challenge which is Ribbons and Lace.

As I was looking through my vintage pictures wondering which one to use I came across my parents wedding photo.
As yesterday would have been their 60th Wedding anniversary had my Dad still been with us it seemed very appropriate to use this image.

Trying to keep a vintage feel to the page Ive used only aged mahogany distress ink to stamp all of the quotes and the images of the church and the old vintage camera.

I cut out the date with the Hippy Chick Cuttlebug Alphabet which I love for my vintage layouts. I then inked it so that it blended in with the quotes.

The aged mahogany distress ink matched well with the rose and the words 'I Love You' on the ribbon across the bottom of the page. I added some vintage lace from the LLBowen collection,( he has some fab accessories for pages and cards etc)

I embossed the tags with wedding images to finish off the page.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and I hope you all have a nice weekend.
