Inspired By A Song Or Film

Morning Peeps I'm a wee it excited today as I get to host a challenge at


and I've chosen my favourite theme

Inspired By A Song or Film

Last time I chose this theme I couldn't stop singing my way around all your blogs!
It was so much fun LOL
My song inspiration is 'Chapel Of Love' by The Dixie Cups
Are you singing it yet?
I had to make a wedding card amongst the orders from my Mum and a friend and I've used my uber cute LOTV image that I haven't used since I made 150 wedding invitations with it! I still adore this beautiful little image and wasn't put off by the volume of invites - just wouldn't want to do it again in a hurry!
. I followed an old sketch from the no longer running truly scrumptious blog and a lot of inspiration from the very talented Fleur! I love her muted tones and vintage look and have tried to emulate it here.
The papers are really old, they are paper pizazz and are some of the first crafty stuff I bought, all the flowers are from WOC and the lace is new from is from The Ribbon Girl. The bronze heart charm was a gift from the lovely Jill, my super talented friend from Norway - thank you Hunny.
Head over to the main blog page for lots of fabulous inspiration from my lovely teammies and all the details of the prize up for grabs from this weeks sponsor

Remember to be eligible for the prize you must use something on your creation that is at least 6 months old and be sure to tell us what it is.

That's all from me today, thank you so much for your support and comments
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

Hi Laurie, well isn't this just the beeeautiful!!! Absolutely gorgeous.

Love the door hanger below as well, the black sparkly thingy is amazing.

Don't think I'm going to make it to Harrogate after all - Lincoln craft fair is only a couple weekends after and as it's nearer hubby would rather take me to that. Bah!
