cutting the cake

This is a new favourite scrapbook page of mine - I'm really loving this colour scheme at the moment. In fact, today I am wearing pink and green. If you've followed my little blog for a while then you'll know that we never actually had a piece of our wedding cake - neither of us had time on the day and then a couple of months later we were burgled. Yes, they took the cake. The uncut, beautiful top layer of our wedding cake was stolen {insert joke here about the cake being stollen}. But just because we didn't get to have any, it doesn't mean that we don't have nice memories of it - it looked great! And everyone else said it tasted amazing.

Anyway, back to the scrapbooking. This turned into quite a thrifty page really. The pink polka dot paper was some used wrapping paper; the corrugated card was a Starbucks sleeve; the green polka dot card was some packaging on a MM product - hooray for recycling. All of my hoarding is paying off at last.

I did originally plan to use buttons {see below} but I had to stop myself. Otherwise, I would have buttons on every page. I love buttons.

I also played around with things this way around {see below} but I prefer the way I went with.

I always photograph my scrapbook pages before sticking them down. When I think I've decided how I want it, I photograph it and then completely mess it up and rearrange it. Then I compare it to the photo and sometimes I find something which works better. Not that you needed to know any of that. I just like to share how I work.

What do you think? I know, I showed you a sneak peak of a completely different scrapbook page, but I haven't finished that one yet. I'll finish it today. I promise.


  1. I love your scrapbooking page, you did a great job. I am so sorry that someone broke in and stole your wedding cake, that is terrible.
    P.S. I love buttons as well!!

  2. Aha! So you like this color scheme too?! And i would feel so frustrated when they (no finger pointing) told me it was ugly!

    Anyways, totally beautiful and captivating as always! Kind of makes me want to start scrapbooking, though i know it isn't my forte.

    You're a miracle


    :) Have a nice day
