Get Picky July #10: Love Wish Dream

Hi again! I'm back with yet another challenge; this is my first submission to Get Picky and here is the inspiration:

Quoting the blogpost: "This month we have chosen this gorgeous butterfly image to inspire you.  You are free to interpret it in any way you choose..... butterfly papers, embellishments, stamps, the colours.....the sky's the limit as long as you create a multi-photo layout."

So here's my interprretation using 2 photos:

Scrapping some of pre-wedding portraits taken back in 2007. The background is actually a plain rosy off-white cardstock misted with a giant Prima Mask.

Here are the butterflies, in line with the challenge requirement. I have Yuz to thanks for the idea to layer the Monarch butterflies. That girl is just bursting with ideas! The top layer is velum. B'fly stamped images are Martha Stewart.
Love Wish Dream... to capture that whimsical romance of our pre-wedding photos.  Liking the feathers??? They are colored turkey feathers from Art Friend at Gardens Mall. The round butterfly charm is Bo Bunny Gabrielle, it was actually a brad but I removed the braddy part so I can affix it to the ribbon. Title Stamp is Tim Holtz.

The doiley paper is from Basic Grey. Metal charm is MM.

Flowers are a combination of Prima and Kaisercraft.

Here's a close up of the 2 photos; one in B&W and one in color.
Sigh ... my old pre-wedding photos gets me all nostalgic about the sweet young days  (only 4 years ago but feels like AGES!) ... and sadly, I know there's no way I can fit into that cheongsam dress anymore! *sob*sob*

Thanks for visiting! Have a lovely day!
