LO Project: 2010 September

As I was surfing through my usual cardmaking and scrapbooking blog roll, I chanced upon this interesting scrapbooking sketch challenge blog Once Upon A... Sketch.

It immediately caught my attention.  I thought, it's been a while that I have been into cardmaking challenges.  It might be a good idea to try to get back on the horse and start making scrap pages again. 

And still inspired by the latest page I finished yesterday, I decided to take the plunge.  Here is my take on their latest sketch challenge.

The journaling reads...

"Today, I wear the white dress.  I am the most beautiful woman in the world.  At the end of the aisle, my handsome prince awaits.

With the words 'I do' we pledge to love each other to the end of our days.  And from this day our journey to forever begins."

A closer look at the details of the page.

Here is the original sketch and the criteria for the September 1st challenge.

SEPTEMBER 1st Challenge

Journalling Criteria : A memorable year - Your title must be a year, and you must journal at least 2 lines on why this year is memorable for you. Examples: the year you got married, the year you graduated, the year you moved to a new house/country, the year you started a new job, the year your child was born, the year you lost someone dear. Your journalling can be in any language and any format (written, typed etc)
