Hello paper friends!
A new month and new challenges to discover.  For November I was able to combine the Berry Blue71 Challenge with the More Than word Challenge. 

Since this year is my 25th wedding anniversary I've been wanting to do a few of my wedding photos in a new setting. Of course they're very special to me. 
The 7Dots Cold Country paper collection is already a little bit older as and as you can see there is plenty of blue.

For my background work I used gesso, stamps, inks and crackle pastes. Building up the layering was mostly done with fibers, chippies and flowers. I had a lot of fun making this layout. 

Still one of my most favorite days.
