Memorabilia and a new page

It feels like a Friday night tonight, instead of Tuesday with the day off for Anzac Day tomorrow.  Term 2 begun yesterday so I have had an extremely busy two days having to fit 5 days work into 4 but that's okay - they have been a good two days so far.
Tomorrow we will remember those who fought for us during the wars.  At this time of year I always get out my scrapbook pages of my father-in-law and grandfather-in-law which contain their involvement in both WW1 AND WW2 and also another book which records the involvement of my grandfathers in the Home Guard, a young cousin who served overseas twice and a Great Uncle who did not return from WW2.  If you wish to see my memorabilia war pages posted last Anzac Day they can be found here.

 Today I share another page from last week's creations.  I spotted an embroidered Prima Page at Embellish It (on sale) and thought I would give it a go.  I had avoided these pages in the past as I felt they were so decorated already it was a shame to cover them up however I have concentrated my photos on pieces which did not have much stitching and this is what I came up with.
 The paper was a 'Sew Cute' Specialty paper from Prima.  I see it was made in Thailand (a coincidence - these photos were taken in Thailand). Flowers are Prima with a touch of Petaloo and Kaiser.
 The window and photo corners are also prima. 
 Alpha - American Crafts.
I felt the colours of the paper complemented the robe in which the bridesmaid is wearing while she is getting ready for the big day.

Well I should be in my scrap room creating with some more Prima - Fairy Belle Range.  I am working on a layout for the Embellish It Crop on Saturday.  So bye for now....

Thank you for visiting my blog today.

Enjoy the rest of the week.

P.S. - The new blogger settings are a bit of a challenge!!
