Bridget then you might want to start at the beginning here.
This month Challenge #1 asked us to take inspiration from jewellery in some way. I've never really scrapped about my jewellery. I don't have a lot. A burglary back in the early 90s cleared us out and made me reluctant to invest too much emotion in valuables. One thing that the "bar stewards" didn't steal (because it was ON my person) was my gold wedding band. Hubby has a matching one and it was safe on his finger too :-D
It's about time I scrapped the story behind them:
We adopted the Dutch custom of wearing matching wedding bands on the "wrong" ring fingers during our engagement and tranferring the rings across to the "correct" hand on our wedding day. I'd totally forgotten, but Hubby still remembered that the design we chose was called "sneeuwklokje" (snowdrop). What a great memory for useless information he has! Strange name for the pattern though, as to me it looks like a cicle of xxxxx around the edge.
Supplies are from my October Counterfeit Kit with the addition of some
blue cardstock, brads and a little orange & gold organza ribbon. The page is 8.5"x11" to fit into my Book Of Me album and it started life as October's sketch over at Purple Pumpkin - thanks Samantha & Sandra - great inspiration as always! (Still time to join in - deadline October 31st)
If you've missed anyone on the CKCBMBH you can find the full list over on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog - why not join in yourself next month?!
