Bride and Groom


Hello and welcome back.  Celeste here with you for this Wednesdays post.

It was my 19th wedding anniversary last week and since I received the new release Wedding Garter border, it seemed appropriate that I do something regarding my wedding day!


Here is my wonderful hubby and myself on our wedding day.  I used the Diamonds & Starburst embossing plate under the photo and on top of that, I placed the Dutch Doily Rectangle Frame over the photo.  I then added the Wedding Garter border around the embossed paper and added the bride and groom lettering.


All the flowers were cut out of white card stock and inked with various Tim Holts distress inks.  This took a while but the end result was quite worth it!


I found that the best way to stick all these flowers down, was to use glue dots.  After sticking down most of the flowers, the Fanciful Flourish and Olive Branches were inserted underneath.


The flowers were to represent my bouquet, but I got a little carried away! They were so much fun to play with.  In my veil I had small crystals, so to incorporate these, I used crystals in the middle of my big flowers.


I hope you like my layout this week, as I had a great time reliving the memories of my special day.
Till next time Celeste
