123 Challenge Blog - December

The 123 Challenge Blog has a slightly Christmas feel to it this month so I decided to do anything but Christmas! The metallic is represented by the gold ribbon, flourish and corner accent, the word joy is in the title and because I am not a girly girl I struggled with the bow but it is tucked in there under one of the ribbon roses!
I have told the story of this wedding previously here but wanted to complete a double page for my 'weddings' album. Not all the family were able to make the trek to Sydney but those of us that were able to make it were greeted by this beautiful bride; she arrived first and was able to welcome her guests and spend a few minutes with us prior to entering the wedding venue where the groom was pacing nervously. The day was a little warmer than expected and the happy couple accepted ice cold drinks after the ceremony. I just happened to catch this moment with their drinks in hand. It is not one of the 'official photos but I think it reflects their joy.
Thank you for looking and any comments you may leave, best wishes.


  1. You have used the criteria so well and I love the deep colors of the lace, suits the photo so well!! Wonderful layout!

  2. Love the 'feel' of this page with the palette you've used. Lovely layout! Thanks for joining in on the fun in this busy month!

  3. Lovely layout Susan! The black touches bring a sense of opulence to your page. Thank you for playing along with us again. Wishing you a Happy 2014!

  4. Another lovely layout and photo. What an unusual and awesome way to welcome everyone. I love unusual... Susan I wonder if you have had a look at CSI... a fab challenge site which has lovely inspiration but is really about the journalling and I think it would suit you perfectly. Here is the link if you are inclined to take a look :D
