Aprils inspiration will come from the Movie Poster... EVER AFTER

(Suggested by Nicky)

Ever After (A Cinderella Story)
For this challenge I'd like you to tell us about 
your Cinderella story. (If you haven't met your 
special prince or princess yet then it can be about 
someone else, maybe your parents, siblings, best
             For an extra 6 bonus points :)

1) Add some bling! Use rhinestones, pearls, glitter or stickles to
give your page some fairytale magic = 1pt 

2) Use a fairytale themed title, line from a movie/book or quote
for your title. (eg. Ever After, Once upon a time, ....there lived a 
handsome prince, he woke her with a kiss.....) = 2pts

3) Journalling (can be hidden or visible) Write a sentence, a 
paragraph or more about your Cinderealla Story (eg how you met, 
how long you have been together or something significant about 
your special Prince/princess! = 3 pts

NOTE - We are now looking for individual entries for FS2S, you may combine your entry with a sketch but we no longer want entries that combine other challenges as we feel the ladies that do the right thing and take the time to enter independent entries are disadvantaged when it comes to winning prizes. If it means we lose a few entries, so be it!

The Design Team have put together some great submissions,
so lots of inspiration to share with you all  :)

Entries for  'EVER AFTER' will close
Sunday 29th APRIL at midnight.

Looking forward to seeing some great entries this month :)
Note - there will be no 'Movie Extra' for April

Here's mine.....

Here is Nicky's submission.....

Nicky Normandale - Ever After


Hi Shazza!

I've finally managed to finish my layout for the Ever After movie poster!

I really wanted this layout to be pretty but also have a nice romantic element to it. Then I found these beautiful new papers from the Bo Bunny Country Garden collection and knew they'd be perfect! This photo of Shannon and I was taken in August last year.  A beautiful photo of us, definitely one of my favourites!

The quote "A dream is a wish your heart makes" is from Cinderella. I thought it was fitting for this challenge being the movie is called Ever After - a Cinderella Story. It also captures how I feel about finding the man of my dreams... If you look close enough you can see the butterflies have been sprayed with glimmeremist and there is a little bling on the diecut banner to the left of the photo. The journalling covers the whole back side of the layout. A quick intro to our story!


Karen's submission is next...

Karen Williams -Once Upon A Time

Hi Shazza

here is my April challenge- 

although it is my 13th wedding anniversary tomorrow I haven't made a LO about my love story. 1. I haven't got a recent photo of the two of us together 2. I haven't scanned in my wedding photos and my printer is running low on ink anyway :(
But I promised my Sister I would make an album for her wedding- it was last JUne and I only have 9 pages
( including this one)
I have the bling _ glitter letters
I have the hidden journalling- on the tag at the top
and I have the once upon a time title


Here is Debi Clarks submission....

Debi Clark - Now and Forever

Hi dear Shazza,
This was a wonderful choice for this months inspiration! 
I loved remembering my early married life, & adding 
bits & bobs to my page. These are 3 great photos 
taken in a photo booth, & I had fun layering &
adding machine stitching too.
Bet we get lots of pages for this challenge!
Hugs Debi xx

Here is Mary's layout for the month...

Mary Steinmetz - Once Upon a Time

Hi Shazza,
Here is my page, my juurnaling reads:
Here is my story: I met Kelly in a local bar. I was stranded, sittig on a bar stool, my girlfriend got upset and just walked out on me. So here  I am sitting here enjoying the loud rock-an-roll  music, thinking how am I going to get home. well, across the bar was this handsome long hair dude, just staring at me. I just gave him a smile and lifted my glass to toast to him, saying it's empty, then all of a sudden there was a full drink sitting right in front of me with a note saying come join me for a dance, and boy did we dance. We had dated for 10 years. Now we have been married for 25 years this coming fall. That's my fairy tale story.

I used a photo of our enagement picture.

Hugs from Wisconsin

Jane's submission......

Jane Howden - Forever and ever ...

Hi Shazza,
Here is my layout for April.  All my own wedding pictures are in an album and I haven’t as yet scanned them so I’ve run with a picture of my parents on their wedding day.  They both look so very young! I’ve covered all criteria.

Now for Jennifer's submission...

Jennifer Manis - My Prince Will Come

Hi Shazza!

Just wanted to send in my layout for April's challenge.  

I loved the challenge this month!  I thought awhile about whose Cinderella story I would tell, and in the end I decided to make the page about my own story.  I don't have my prince yet, but I created this and added little journaling notes in the pocket about what I want and what he should expect from me.  I think it will be fun to look back at this one day and see what I thought was important in a relationship and if my expectations came true!  :)  My layout is titled, 'My Prince Will Come.' 


Here is Dale's April submission....

Dale Tiernan - Enchanted by Magic Kingdom

Hi Shazza,
I've completed my Ever After layout today. For the 6 points 
I have:
1) Added some glitter stickers and lots of rhinestones.

2) Have used the Enchanted Walt Disney movie in my title

3) Have told the story about Disneyland and the fairytale 
castle in my journalling.
