Pretty in Pink

My first bridal shower layout this year... and boy will there be many more :) 2 big weddings (1 down, 1 to go) and lots of parties, planning, and PICTURES! :)

This is the first layout for the bridal shower I did for my best friend's wedding (this past weekend). The photos are of the party preparation and decorations. So pretty!

I used 2 different sketches for the 2 pages.

The first page, used the current sketch at Frosted Designs. I loved the arrangement of the photos!

I had to adapt it for my horizontal pics, but I think it has the same look. I kept the flower embellishments in the same places as well as the journaling elements - hidden tag for the right side and a library pocket (from my friend April!) on the left side. Fun journaling pieces!

For the 2nd page, I used the current sketch at Get Your Sketch On. I loved the center focal point!

I decided to switch my photos to the background quadrants and make the circle an embellishment. 

I cut the scallop circle from kraft cardstock and wrapped pink floss around it. I scraplifted this technique from my friend Sandi! I layered another flower and brad on top to carry over the same look from the first page. I just love how it turned out!

This layout is also to highlight The Paper Variety's latest challenge. Abby has a fun theme: create your own 1-2-3 recipe. Be sure to tell us what your ingredients are ;)

Each side of my layout has 1 border punch (Martha Stewart - Doily Lace), 2 patterned papers (green stripe is My Minds Eye and pink floral is Recollections) and both have 3 word titles :) Easy cheesy right?!

And look what you have a chance to win..

The April kit from Artful Delight!

Just link up your 1-2-3 paper projects by Tuesday at noon. And stop by TPV to see what the rest of the design team created! :)

Have a great week!
