Wedding morning smallUsing layout #2 from the Scrapbooking Layouts series, ‘The Big Day’ shows several small photographs of the bride’s preparations on her wedding morning.

The photographs were converted to black and white, but color was kept for the red rose. With so many photos this was going to be a busy layout, so I kept the color scheme simple.

Two things to be reconsidered:

  • the colored rose may have been better in the middle
  • the title would have been better for being embossed

I used these products:

  • Paper from the Colossal pack by Papermania
  • ‘big day’ stamp from Papermania
  • X-cut’s tag punch
  • Buttons from Papermania
  • die cut flowers
  • tiny little gems – sorry no identification on pack

The journaling reads:

The wedding MORNING …

  • you ate enough at breakfast for you AND Dan, while he, poor guy, hadn’t eaten a thing since Thursday!
  • one hairdresser for four ladies is not enough!
  • so glad we had connecting rooms at the hotel – we needed the space
  • tension rose for me during the last hour with my hair and makeup still not done
  • you were so calm
  • after all the build-up it was suddenly time to leave & Dad & I were rushing to finish dressing
  • ‘as a bride prepared for her bridegroom’ took on new meaning when I saw you
  • I said, ‘You look stunning!’ You said, ‘I’m supposed to!’ And grinned!
  • I was in a right tizz by the time we got to church – so much for elegance and calm
  • fortunately you did that beautifully!
