A Wedding in December?

This gorgeous paper form My Minds Eye ( in the December Kit)
Inspired me to create a layout, using a photo from my wedding 10 years ago.
No it has nothing to do with the holidays,
but I hope it shows you the versatility this amazing kit provides.

First off, I want you to know we did not have the budget for a
professional photographer at our wedding.
All of our photos were taken by guests and family.
This particular photo is one of my favorites...
Its a photo of me and my daughter Haylie ( who is now 17)

The color is a little off.... but it was perfect for this background paper.

I didn't need to add many embellishments with the beautiful
glittered edge and patterned left side.

Of course I added some paint splatters,
burgundy acrylic to match the background.
I found an old cream velvet flocked "u" in my stash,.
I added a little ribbon to the monogram.
I also added a few Basic Grey alphas to finish off the title.
( The glittered plus sign is by Pink Paislee Hocus Pocus)

I punched out a few starbursts using my Martha Stewart punch.
I also punched out little circles from the Girls Paperie quilted paper,
highlighting the roses in the center.
I adhered them with foam adhesive for height.
I also made an extra one with the flip side of the paper,
and some BG alphas for the date

I cropped the photo from a 4x6, matted it with the Orangey paper,
and layered a couple of the Bazill trims around the photo.
I also used foam adhesive on the photo.

The layout is sophisticated and artsy...
Perfect to capture this moment.
