JAI #263: Just Add Weddings!


I'm back with my first Just Add Ink challenge in 8 weeks - I really missed doing the challenges, so I'm glad to be back.

This week Jan has challenged us to create with weddings in mind.  It can be anything to do with a wedding - think shower teas, invitations, congrats, anniversaries.... anything!

It may be a little predictable, but I went with the Something Borrowed suite of products from the Occasions Catalogue.  Can you believe that this is the first time I've cracked open that roll of gorgeous Sahara Sand Lace Trim? Neither can I!

I went with Blackberry Bliss as my accent colour.  I wanted the drama of a dark colour but I wasn't in the mood for using black or navy.  I was thrilled to see that the Crazy About You stamps and Hello You thinlits were carrying over to the new catalogue as I've had a lot of fun playing with them.

Now, the worst thing about Blackberry Bliss is that you have to be ULTRA careful not to get it anywhere it shouldn't be. In this case I noticed a small smudge of it at the top right of my inside.  I had intended to make a more elaborate inside using one of the Something Borrowed Embellishments.  I still will, but I ran out of time so this inside will do for now.

Are you inspired to play along at Just Add Ink this week?  I hope so!

Bye for now,
