Right away, I had a vision in my mind to scrap one of Monica's wedding photos with the long, long title of "You may now kiss the bride."
If you know Monica's story, skip ahead. If not, read on. Monica is my best friend's daughter. Her 23-year-old husband just died in July after a 6 year battle with bone cancer. Monica and James have thousands of photos on their Facebook pages, and I've been grabbing them from there to make Monica a book so she'll remember the many happy memories in their short life together.
I've been trying to play as much at The Color Room because I love their challenges but with all my CSI work, I never seem to have enough time, so I've been using the TCR palettes for my Creative Scrappers design team work. I used what was at the time the current palette:
So here's what I came up with:
My layout looks much prettier in real life. Here are a few details from my page. The frames on my page were trimmed from a Teresa Collins paper.
I had to use ribbon as part of The Color Room's challenge, so I tied a silver heart charm to the frame surrounding Monica and James. You can see I used an old K&Co. transparency. I've been trying to use more transparencies lately. I have SO many from when they were popular back in the day.
I've also been trying to use up some of my textured papers, of which I have TONS.
Here's a close-up of the flower. You can see I used silk leaves from some silk flowers. That rhinestone brad is really old. It's by Creating Keepsakes. I got a bunch of them at JoAnn years and years ago. They're so pretty but the prongs are a pain to get through the paper.
Here's my chipboard from the challenge in the form of glittery letters. I added pearls to the pink foam letters at the last minute. That blue damask paper is by Fancy Pants. I wish I had more of that paper. It's a pretty shade of blue.
The team made some really fantastic layouts with this sketch. Go check it out here.
