One of my goals in 2011 is to scrap and use up all the stash i have as soon as i have them. Hoarding just isnt too good for me as i tend to forget what i have…

A friend got married a few weeks ago and i thought it would be fun to make him a paper moustache to match his victorian, english wedding (his suit just looked too modern!). I got the moustache back after the photoshoot and got my boyfriend to pose with it! Love his priceless expression!

When i told another friend what i had done, she tore this page from her magazine, which has others posing with the moustache too! So being gauche-ie…i decided that i would just use it for my layout. Going with the ‘english’ theme, i opted for more black, white and beige. LOVE the knick knacks from the Black Out Mixed Media kit! It goes so well with the colour theme of this layout and the vintage feel just pops out with the use of these. Also sneaked in some punchinella.

so less procrastinated project!


hugs, Mer
