Next up with some great inspiration is.....

Holly Rogers - No Rain on Our Parade

Hi Shazza,
I'm not one to pull my camera out in the rain so it had me quite stumped. Originally I remembered a photo under an umbrella at Melbourne Cup a few years ago... but its such a close up, it doesn't really look like an umbrella. Then I remembered the prop we had on our wedding day... white paper parasols. So not umbrellas in the traditional sense, but still fitting for the challenge. We were also lucky enough to have absolutely perfect weather on our wedding day... despite a lead up of rainy weather... hence the title "No Rain on Our Parade". It was my only stress before the wedding since it was something I couldn't control. The final part of the challenge was to have lots of 3, so I have 3 photos, 3 patterned papers (including the background, as its a patterned paper in reverse with the edges distressed and folded back) and 3 flowers.
Thanks for a fab challenge.
Holly
 
Hi Holly! I think you wedding parasol photos are just perfect :) The title is just so fitting and I'm glad it didnt rain on your parade! Great that you did 3 photos, flowers and pp's! This is a beautiful entry and its so nice to get a wedding photo scrapped...Well done! - Cheers Shazza

  4. Thanks ladies. I'm so glad I got the parasols for the photos. They were a bit of fun and turned out great. They do say rain on a wedding day is good luck... but I'm still glad it didn't happen for us.
