More wedding scrapping -and no purple!
M is a fireman and the newly weds rode a vintage fire engine from the church to the reception. This was obviously a great photo op, but even better - no purple! So I got the chance to use these rather gorgeous papers from the 'J'Adore' pad by First Edition Papers from Hobbycraft.
I always find it hard to work with 1 portrait and 1 landscape picture and I often end up using this sort of fairly graphic layout. I got it slightly wrong today as A and M are looking off the page in the bottom photo, but I didn't notice that until it was too late and I don't think it matters.
I teamed the florals with some elements cut from the MME Chalk Studio 6x6 papers, which gave me the perfect title and subtitle.
I've had those tiny gold envelopes for about 6 years. They were one of the very first embellishments I bought when I started scrapbooking and I've always felt they needed to be filled with something really, really important. Why it never occurred to me before to use them just as decoration, I do not know! There is nothing in them, although I might add a little journaling card if there's anything left to be written when I've finished all the wedding pages.
I found the red felt elements when I got my Christmas stash out recently. I assume they are meant to be poinsettias as they rest of the sheet was baubles and reindeer, but they look fine here, teamed with a Basic Grey ampersand brad.
To finish off I used some tiny red sequins for a confetti effect.
