Wedding Dresses

This layout was created for a challenge at Practical Scrappers Check them out they are an amazing resource.  I am starting to like one photo layouts.  Sometimes one fantastic photograph is all you need on a page.   The background paper is made by Best Creation, Inc.  The mattes are World Win Papers in creamy cocoa and spring green.  As well as Basic Grey's Nook and Pantry paper pad.  I created the tag myself.  The flowers, leaves and such came from Remember When Scrapbooking which is fantastic.  I love that store.  Oh and yes, on the white letter stickers  I did use Color Box CHALK inks in dark brown and yellow cadmium.  I am seriously considering switching to the Quick Quotes brand however.  As the foam pad came off  the yellow while I was inking which turned out to be very messy.

I created this layout of my daughter when she was a debutante for the local hospital.  She is wearing my old wedding dress.  The hospital did not allow lace or beading on the dress. so we had the bodice remade with simple white satin.  I took this photo in our backyard with my point and shoot. Which has sadly now died as a result of a fatal kayaking accident.  I went in the water and was fine.  Unfortunately, The camera didn't stand a chance.  But that is ok as I am very excited about getting a new DSLR camera.  Any suggestions? 

Espy, the designer for Craftology Studio, created the bodice for the dress.  She is incredibly talented and has more years experience in the L.A. fashion industry than I can remember.   Keep checking back as I will soon be posting the photo of the adorable windbreak she created for her family reunion.  She used Craftology Studio fabrics and trims.  It was truly something special it looked like it came right out of a fairy tale.

Create the world you imagine.
