Blue & White Wedding

Recently, I was asked by a friend to do a layout of her daughter's wedding to put in a frame.  I did a layout for her of her son's wedding that she framed and wanted to do the same for her daughter's.

My friend provided the blue paper which is from Stampin' Up.  I made a frame for the main photo using a Martha Stewart border punch and shiny Bazzill white cardstock.  Another friend, Helen Liu made the beautiful white roses (you can view Helen's blog if you click her name on my sidebar.  Helen made the shower and wedding invitations also in the same color scheme).  A touch of Frosted Lace Stickles was added to the roses to give them a bit of sparkle.  The white silky leaves are Prima.  I used an EK circle punch for the sweet photo of the bride and groom and Zva pearls to surround it.  All the pearl swirls are from Zva.  Peeking out among the flowers are some white fronds I made from a leftover piece of the Bazzill cardstock and another Martha Stewart punch.  I got this idea from watching a Live with Prima tutorial the other night where Sharon used the fronds to fill in her cluster of flowers.  Love that idea!

Above is a closeup of the flowers so you can see the dimension.  I added a few light blue satin flowers as well as a flower with a pearl heart center (I'm not sure who made those as they were given to me). 

And this is the framed result.  The white frame really adds the perfect finish to the layout.  Sorry for the poor photo quality.  It was a beautiful sunny day but not too good for photographing glass.

I think spring is here to stay for quite awhile.  Our forecasted temperatures are 10-20 degrees higher than normal for this time of year.  I spent some time today putting away my winter decorations as they were really out of place with the daffodils blooming outside!  It is a good feeling putting out the soft spring decorations.  I hope you have an enjoyable week ahead.  Thanks for stopping by!
