a Lovely Evening

A few weeks ago we went to the most perfect wedding.  My cousin Alisha married Kris on the grounds of a historic home.  It was just beautiful.

In all the photos I made there wasn't a good close image of the bride and groom. So I did a collage and included as many photos of my family as I could.  Alisha and her father, my cousin Johnny, are in the two center photos of this collage. 

Project Notes:

  • "LOVELY" was cut with the Cricut Storybook cartridge.  I bought this cartridge for all the images and thought the font would be too frilly to use but I love it! 

  • I didn't have quite enough of the aqua and ivory background paper for the first page so I spliced in the brown paper which provided a contrasting background for the flocked chipboard letters. 

  • I didn't have the pink rose I really wanted for the right hand page so I pulled apart another pink silk flower, darkened the petals with Regal Rose craft ink and glued them together with glue dots.  The remainder of the flower is made with some wonderful Webster's Pages lace in just the right shade of brown to complement the wedding colors. 

The butterfly is from a Crate Paper collection.  There was a butterfly fluttering over all the floral arangements during the actual ceremony.  They couldn't have planned a more appropriate touch for their ceremony.

The journaling is printed on vellum and details some of the pretty touches of the wedding.  With perfect weather, beautiful grounds, interesting floral arrangments, good conversation, a happy bride and great food, no wonder eveyone kept saying it was a Lovely Evening.

Ingredients:  DSP:  Marrakech from Basic Grey, Prudence by Crate Paper
