Wedding LO Part Deux
This is my grandparents on their wedding day, sadly both have passed on, my grandmother before I was born, so I never got to know her. I am making a book of my grandmothers life, and am scrap-booking as many pictures of her as I can find to be part of it, she hated having her picture taken although when I see these pictures of her wedding day I don't understand why, I think that she was beautiful.
I am entering this LO in the challenge at "The Paper Variety" the challenge was black and white with a kiss of color, so I chose the color that (I think) her bouquet was. My background paper is from DCWV's The Formal Stack, the roses in the original paper were white, I don't know why it came out looking pinkish when I took my picture, the effect is much more striking in person. The accent paper is from The Old World Stack (also DCWV). I used my Ashlyns Alphabet cart for the lettering and Walk In My Garden for the border, I used my gypsy to turn the roses into a border.
