Scrap the girls

I love this colour challenge at Scrap the girls

White, green and black....and I instantly thought of trees. And then I remembered I took this photo of Jodie (DD)on her friends Hens Day standing by a tree and wouldn't you know it...wearing a green dress!

I will confess that this layout was a 12 by 12 but I stuffed it up badly,  but I managed to cut it down to 8 and a half by 11.I think its come out okay.





This was my first play around with texture paste..didn't really know what I was doing.
I then dabbed it with Jenni Bowlin paint dabber and then used Bird on a wire washi tape ..I love this stuff!

Jodie was bridesmaid for Susies wedding and she thought this Hens Day out very well.As it was Melbourne Cup Day, the theme was to wear big hats and a outfit from the local Opp Shop....meaning something not that fashionable...
As Susie was marrying a lovely man from England, the theme of Aussie meets British was quite relevant. We had vegemite and also cucumber sandwiches, cheese and bacon fingers, and I forgot...fritz sangers as well, besides lovely cakes ,slices, patty cakes, quandong pies and the list goes on!!!
The setting was so pretty on the front lawn...we had such a wonderful day, considering I didn't get anything in all the sweepstakes I entered!

I thought I would share some pics....



The wedding was beautiful as well!!
