Dear Scrappy Friends!! I am down with the flu this week, so this blog will be a little shorter than normal, but I am so excited to share one of my favorite layouts, I think, of my dear, sweet niece Samantha on her wedding day in Jamaica last month. She is radiant, and sooooo young. All of her pictures are so wonderful, I had a hard time deciding which one to use first!!! I thought this one would be the most perfect for Valentine's Day.
I used the new Mintay "Birdsong" paper collection for her layout since her wedding colors were a very pale pinkish, nudish color. There is a lot of fussy cutting of flowers and birds and butterflies, etc. all over the layout. I had so much fun.
That absolutely gorgeous, and chipboard lacy CE Heart Dangle on the right side of the is so elegant and divine. I heat embossed it with Stampendous Shabby Pink that has little gold specks in it. It is such a soft pink and does not photograph very well, but looks incredible against the background paper.
Her dress was a solid piece of stretch lace much like the lace I used horizontally in the center of the page.
I chose the Rectangle Flourish Frame 1 for my photo and used the same embossing powder. It is definitely a WOW against that photo!
The printed images on the paper included greenery that looks the same as the Fern Foliage 3 . I had a Lindy's embossing powder in the pale green that matched perfectly and I just inked around the edges with a rust chalk ink. I tucked them in here and there in amongst the flowers around the frame. Just adds a little something extra I think.
Here's another shot.
Can you find the little butterfly?????
And finally here’s one showing all the fussy cutting I did. Hope you enjoy looking as much as I enjoyed sharing. Thank you so much for stopping by.
