A Bride and Her Maids

I'm gambling on the bride in the picture not reading my blog, as this is her 30th birthday present and it's not her birthday for another week. I hope I haven't spoiled the surprise! Anyway, I made this page for a friend who got married a few years ago.


It's inspired by a Pencil Lines sketch from March (and the reason I'm posting it now is so that I can enter in time).


You can't see because the photo is black and white, but the blue I've chosen matches the bridesmaids' dresses (and that's me, on the far left of the photo). I also used a bit of orange - not my favourite colour, but I love how it goes with the blue.

I hope my friend likes this. And is surprised by it, in a good way of course.


  1. And what an absolutely gorgeous shade of blue it is! (what a lovely idea for a present too)

  2. She will love it! All the details and textures are really pretty in blue and orange!

  3. a very pretty page!!
    Have a nice weekend!

  4. It is a beautiful layout and will look wonderful int the box frame. I am sure she will be delighted with it. I love orange! it lifts the colour. Love the twine and the rolled flowers.

  5. What a great present, it's so pretty. I'm sure your friend will love it :)

  6. Great page, glad you could link up to PI!
