Married in White, you have chosen right
Married in Grey, you will go far away,
Married in Black, you will wish yourself back,
Married in Red, you will wish yourself dead,
Married in Green, ashamed to be seen,
Married in Blue, you will always be true,
Married in Pearl, you will live in a whirl,
Married in Yellow, ashamed of your fellow,
Married in Brown, you will live in the town,
Married in Pink, you spirit will sink.
Well, from the above looks like white and blue are the best colours to be married in, pearl, brown and grey are a matter of opinion – some like to travel afar, in town or live in constant commotion. The consequences of being married in black, red, yellow or pink don’t sound like they bode well … glad I chose blue for my wedding gown!!
Scott and I were married on 9 December, 1989 by candlelight at the little Anglican Church here in the village of Wooler. There was a beautiful gentle snow coming down that covered the ground in the most picturesque way. Our beloved friend Roger Sabo sang Auld Lang Syne (the Dan Fogelberg version). Some of my relatives found the lyrics inappropriate and wondered why on earth Roger chose to sing it – and were dumbstruck when we told them we had requested it …)
Our daughters Nikki (9), Stephanie (7) and Jacqui (5) were our bridesmaids, and they looked SO SWEET in their little red dresses. I made all of our dresses – we really didn’t have any money to spare for store-bought gowns. Our honeymoon was taken upstairs, as with 3 children to feed and no one to look after them, we couldn’t afford a honeymoon, nor did we want to leave the girls alone with just ANYONE (Scott came with three little girls into my life – so we had an instant family together). Four years later we had Chris, then Mary came three years after that. The girls were godmothers to their little brother, and Mary had our dear friends Sue Smith and Roger Sabo as godparents. Mary was baptized in the same little church we were married in.
Anyway, pay close attention to this layout because the flowers are made from the material from which I made my wedding gown!!
This layout is created for the latest challenge at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge where we challenge you to:
June is a popular month for weddings – how about scrapping yours?? If you have not married, scrap a photo of you as a child and how you dreamed it would be for you when you married. If that does not suit you, then scrap your parents wedding, or someone close to you.
This month’s prize is a chance to be our guest designer for the month of August. Further, we are offering another chance at the guest DT spot for each extra player you refer to play along with our June challenges (posted on the 1st and the 15th of the month). Just have them leave a comment under the challenge that you sent them along to (giving your blog address or someway we can reach you), or they can tell us in their blog posting who sent them along).
Here is my layout using Webster’s Pages Postcards from Paris la boutique de jardin paper:
I also used May’s colours for the Colour Suite challenge over at Scrapbooks and Cards Today for this layout:
