Amanda's Wedding Reception ~ Scrapbook Make-Over ~ Winner of The Pink Elephant Scrapbook Challenge No. 2

Hello everyone, this is for the scrapbook make-over challenge over at The Pink Elephant.  The challenge is called: "Time for Ella to give her Scrapbook a Scrap Make-Over!"
This weeks challenge is to take an old layout and give it a Make-Over!
We can take the whole thing apart, or just add to it!  

WOW, I'm a little embarrassed to show you this before photo!!  It looks like I just got up and left without finishing it!!!!   This is a layout I did this last summer for my DD Amanda's Wedding Reception Album.. I gave her the Wedding Ceremony Album, but I don't have many pages done for the Reception Album, yet...  I needed a break...  Boy did I!!!   It looks like I was running out of steam, or embellies, one or the other!!!  LOL   Actually, I think this was before I discovered the wonderful world of Prima Flowers and Say It In Crystals...and all of those other amazing embellies that I love soooooooooooo much!!!! 
You can pretty much tell what I added here... 
Here is the list of the original scrappy things I used:
Bazill ~ Sassy
Once Upon a Time ~ Botanical Script DP
Bazzill ~ Romantic Mauve
Bazzill ~ Sandbox
The Paper Company ~ Brown Shimmer
SU Razzleberry ~ Lemonade
SU Pale Plum Ink
SU Border Punch
Making Memories ~ Brad Combo Mocha Paperie
Jenni Bowlin Bingo Card ~ mini brown

And here's what I added to the "After" layout!
I took off the old flowers and then added
Prima Flowers
Prima Say It In Crystals
Silhouette Vine
True Love Hearts
The Black embellie is part of a hair comb from Hobby Lobby...
And then I doodled around some of the edges with my white gel pen....
Hope you like the new version!!  I do!!
I also found a few challenges that this will qualify for, which are:
The Pink Elephant ~ Make-Over
Totally Paper Crafts ~ Distressing
Crafty Angels ~ My favorite thing ~ Prima Flowers & Primas Say It In Crystals
Totally Gorjuss ~ Add Some Texture
SophistiCat Challenge ~  Distressing
The Corrosive Challenge Blog ~ Texture
Pals Paper Arts ~ Flowers
Thanks so much for dropping by!
Have a wonderful week!!
And please stop back by any time!!
Hugs  :o)
Pin It!

Wow Fern...I sure got some inspiration here today..isn't it fun to look back and see how our scrapping has evolved....i have so many pics to scrap and I look back at albums before I found how much I love to scrap and feel the same the pages are not done...I really love the both of these and had I not seen the after would have thought the before was beautiful...but it is amazing what you've done by adding the extra know I love lots of stuff on my pages and the after is simply stunning...great photo too!!!!

Fern...i can't believe you said you were embarrassed of showing the older layout...shame on you, lol. That was your style then and we are all caterpillars at one time or another. I love both! BUT......I really-really like all you add to the newer version ;)

Hugs to you my dear Fern!!!!!!!!!!!

The difference is amazing! That's one thing I love about stamping...always something new to learn and evolve as a stamper. Your page is evidence of that. You have grown so much since your first page. Wonderful job!
