It's going to be sew much fun at The Paper Variety this week!
And Abby has donated an awesome October Afternoon prize.
When I saw the sketch at Frosted Designs this week; I knew it would be PERFECT for a wedding layout I've had in the back of my mind for a while.
My best friend since 2nd grade was able to come to my wedding! We send Christmas cards to each other every year, but I hadn't seen her in at least 10 years. I was so excited she could be there on my special day. These photos are so precious to me I wanted to really go all out on this layout.
You can click to view it larger and see the details. I used Basic Grey's Cappella patterned paper - it matched her mint green dress perfectly. There were some soft pinks in the paper, too, so I pulled those out in cross-stitching around the outside edges. Then, I zig zag stitched in dark green around the bracket. The beige in "childhood" better matches the bracket mat in real life :)
I have been hoarding these beautiful "bridal satin blossoms" from Tessa! I bought them over a year ago to go with this layout. I'm so glad I held out and waiting for the perfect time! I'm so proud of this layout. It's probably my favorite so far in our wedding album - and my hubby isn't in it LOL. Go figure! ;)
Be sure to swing by The Paper Variety and see what the rest of the DT created and link up your projects.
Speaking of which, next week we have something EXTRA special going on at TPV...
You don't want to miss it!
