Shabby Chic....

well I tried to do shabby chic for challenge 4 for Project Fashionista over at Wicked Princesses.
I do like how this layout has turned out. The photo is of my mother-in-law and I really loved the fan she was folding as her bouquet so I used it for my inspiration to create the page. Well here it is...
Criteria was to used muted tones, well I don't know if you class the pale pinks as muted colours or not, oh well. Also had to use lace & pearls, I used pearl beads and stitched them into place which took me 2 hours, talk about a labor of love!
Here are a couple of close ups to show the details...

If you are interested in a challenge with a difference why not pop over to From Screen 2 Scrap.
The October poster is...
and the criteria is:
1. Use a group photo
2. Yellow or gold title
3. Use one element from the poster - a dinosaur, monkey, plane, rocket, squid etc.....
OR
3. Something inspired by one of the figures in the poster.......
example #1 The Pharaoh = a pyramid or Egyptian theme
example # 2 Napoleon Bonaparte = the Eiffel tower
Here is another peek of my DT layout which will be revealed soon.
So that is all from me, take care until next time...
