May 'MAY I?' Challenge by Sarah

Stuck close to home: Snarf my idea from an Artist who also lives here in Ottawa and who's work I can (and do) spend much time admiring. She does it all: jewelry, painting, journaling... and it's all just so pretty. 

 The copied work is HERE.
The Blog post around it is HERE.  

Really liked the ripped bits and pieces in this, 
As well as the 'highlighted' framed photo. 
Though it itself is not a Scrapbook Page, it works as a great template for one. 

Been falling behind in my personal goal to have at least 1/2 of our Wedding Scrapbook done by the end of 2012, so I used this challenge as an opportunity to git'anuther page done. 
The pictures were taken by a dear friends Mother (Barbara McGoey) who attended our wedding. She is a FAB-u-lous photographer who took a bunch of really awesome candid shots. 
 Most the the ripped up bits are either a copy of our Wedding Invitation or the online RSVP information card. 
Background paper is Little Yellow Bicycle 'Lucky Me' line.  
Flower sticker strip (snipped into 2 pieces) and Lucky Journal block (ripped in 2) is also from LYB 'Lucky Me' line
Other paper strips are unknown, bits I found in the scrap pile that matched well. 
Bling-y Double Hearts and 12" strip (snipped into smaller pieces) are from KaiserCraft. 
Metal Frame around the Cake is Making Memories. 
The Dreams sticker is from K&Company.
Ribbon was a bit I got in a Swap, er... years ago... *blowing the dust off*

Hoping that she likes my 'May I?' take on her project, 
Thank-You for the inspiration Wendy!
