Elegance in Black

Tonights layout is something I'd never tried before, but I had this idea and I think it kind of worked.

My idea was to see what a layout would look like if you only used one colour - and I chose Black!  Eek!!  Now as with all colours, there are so many different shades of black and this layout uses different textures all over it to keep the interest, without feeling too grungy. 

The picture is one of me that was taken at my SIL's wedding last year, and I actually like this page of me (normally I cringe at the thought of me on a page!)

The title is kinda ironic, as I'm usually running all over the place at 100 miles an hour so elegance usually gets left behind, but that day in me posh frock I did feel good :-)
