I have many wonderful memories and photos from my wedding day, fourteen years ago! But sadly most of my photos are copyrighted by the fabulous photographer we had on the day. I tried desperately to find some photos that friends or family had taken but it was truly slim pickings! Nobody in my family picks up a camera except me! How heart breaking is that?! So I have had to think outside the box for this challenge.
I included a large photo (that I eventually found buried beneath a crazy amount of paperwork!!) and a lot of journaling.
My children have frequently asked my husband and I, questions about our wedding day and they love to hear the stories of what occurred. Like most big events, we had our share of drama, but they have been over shadowed by the fun memories we have of our day. I wanted to journal a few of these memories so that in years to come my children or grandchildren can really get a sense of these special moments.
You may have noticed that this layout is an odd size and deviation from my usual style. *grin* Not only is it a rare double but an uneven double at that! LOL. One side is my regular 8.5in x 11in...
I've fussy cut a lot of the flowers from the Esther Fleming Floral patterned paper and layered them in clusters on my journaling page. I've added small splashes of mist to enhance the floral and confetti look. It is a wedding layout after all!! *grin* And well.. I don't really need an excuse to use mist/paint but I really wanted to on this layout!
I hope you will join in with us over at Bella, to wish Stephanie an awesome day! Thanks so much for taking the time to come and visit..x
