I can't really believe that I have done a scrapbook page......I just don't scrapbook! But over on the FISKARETTES BLOG the weekly challenge was vintage and after being inspired by Di , I felt the urge hahahaha
The photo is a lovely one of my 3 Uncles not long after they emigrated to Australia. My Uncle John is the groom and he is marrying Beverley. On the left is my Uncle Les who was just recovering from a snake bite and had nearly died. Incidently, an aborigine saved him by smearing honey on the wound! On the left is the younger brother, Percy. Hence why on the back Bev has written....."Me and the Boys". Very sadly for us all this beautiful, vibrant, fun-loving woman is in the latter stages of Dementia.
I used a sketch by Caroline Scattergood, which can be found HERE!. The papers I have used are from K&CO . The flowery paper is just like a dress my mother wore in Australia. They use lovely bright fabrics which are treated with something so that they don't fade. I haven't put a title on it because I couldn't decide on one and then realised that it didn't matter hehe
Thank you so much for looking XXX
