Something Old, Something New

These pages preceed my early ones "something borrowed", and "something blue". I used a page maps sketch and it was the perfect fit!

Here is my "something old" page. Photos of my mom in her wedding dress and journaling the story behind it. It was my Aunt's and she borrowed it from her. Since my Aunt has all boys, she offered it to me to wear. For personal reasons, that was a no.

My "something new" is my Aunt had a little bag made with the dress for me. She also had ones made for her future daughter-in-laws since she wore it too. It was such a nice and unexpected gesture. I love how this page includes the inside of the card she wrote. The ribbon in this page is straight in real life, not sure how that happens when I take a photo of a layout.

Here is what the pages look like next to each other. I love how it turned out!

Beautiful. Both pages. I love that you're telling the background stories, too. Just awesome.
