Happy Friday 13th!

I didnt realize we had a Friday the 13th so early in the year. Is anyone superstitious when it comes to these kind of things? I can be but I dont let it get out of hand. Last weekend I attended a New Years crop at a LSS. She has such a turn out for this event that she has one on New Years weekend & the weekend after because she has only so much space. She always has a grand buffet & hourly specials. She even provided paper, chipboard & instructions on how to make a desktop calendar. Lots of fun!  I decided I was going to start on my daughters wedding album while I was there. I had already gotten everything together ahead of time & thought I had everything with me. Here are my before & after pictures of the 1st LO.
 This is the LO I made at the crop. I knew I had to add something because it just looked too plain. My daughter & I made her wedding invitations, which were only about 20. The embossed pieces on both sides are what we used for the front of the card & are inked with  Faded Jeans distress ink as well. She also stamped a big heart with a couple kissing on the front. There also are wedding bells above the couple which were stamped with embossing ink & heat embossed with silver embossing powder.
The next day after the crop I just had to figure something out for this page. I remembered I had blue lace but that seemed like too much blue. I just had to use that lace though. It looked so nice. I took the plain white TH lavish trimmings ribbon & inked it with Tattered Rose distress ink just like I did with the title & mats for the pictures. It took me awhile to figure out what I wanted to put on the ribbon. The flowers I put on the ribbon are Artisan Elements from Pink Paislee. All the elements in the package are white & you can ink them any way & color you want. They feel like a rubber resin. Quite different. The darker blue flowers I misted with metallic blue that I received from Robyn, a fellow scrapper. The lighter blue flowers I just inked with Tumbled Glass distress ink.
    I also made 2 other LOs but they have to be modified also. I just havent gotten around to it yet. I started to do a LO for a challenge with some more pictures from my daughters wedding so I will post that once it is finished.
   Have a Great weekend!
