On Trial...

Hi Lovlies

A second post in one day hey, I obviously have lots to share this week!

Over on UK Scrappers, the challenge this week was to create a layout:

1. using the sketch provided
2. using black somewhere on the layout and
3. using photos that aren't perfect but tell a story.

Here's the fabby sketch that was provided:

and here's my layout:

I was initially a bit stumped when I saw the sketch as I had mistaken every box on there for photos (!) but luckily some represented patterned paper phew!

I really love these photos. They are from our wedding during the Best Mens' speech (yes there were two of them...) but they are definitely not perfect. No one is posing for the camera and I'm mid-laugh (not to mention the fire exit sign in the background on one of them) but they absolutely tell a story. I've written in quite a lot of journalling about the speech itself and explained why on earth Ben is in handcuffs and on trial:

and I'm really happy with the minimalistic background that is embellished just the little flowers dotted around:

So I followed the sketch, used less than perfect photos that tell a story and used quite a bit of black on my layout (washi tape, photo mounts and gems) so I'm going to claim full points for my team!

Thanks for looking xx
