Good morning friends, I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far.

I have another wedding layout to share with you today....


Isn't this just the most adorable photo ever? The photographer capture this moment perfectly!!! Photo credit Luxarte Studios.

I kept my grandson's boutineer just for this layout. I created a little heart shape pocket using my We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool and Fuseables card. Adding a piece of organza ribbon by the Ribbon Boutique is just the right touch.



I use a couple of my favourite circle stamps to add to the background


Product List: Basic Grey - Prism papers, sticker and wood veneer, AC Cardstock, Heidi Swapp epoxy title and hearts, Simple Stories enamel dots.

I was inspired by The ScrapRoom Freaky Fast Friday challenge.

Just Married - Lasting Memories Layout Challenges DT Reveal

Happy Sunday morning everyone. I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.
It is time for another installment of the "All In The Name Of Love" challenge over at Lasting Memories Layout Challenges. Today's challenge is Celebration of Love - create a layout showing a moment, celebration, favourtie hobby, family, anything you love. That was an easy one for me.

Here is my layout....


What better "Celebration of Love" than a wedding!!!

I just love this photo....I had journaling all printed out on strips to add to the layout, but I thought it took away from it, so I added it to the back of the layout....it reads: So much captured in this candid photo.....You are both looking in the directions of your families just before the minister announces you as Mr. & Mrs.
Aiden is in the background admiring the ring bearer cushion.

Here are some closeups....


I added lace to the top of my layout and an antique piece of lace from my Great Aunt Ada. I wouldn't want to guess how old that piece of lace is.


I used my Silhouette to cut the heart, title and flower cluster.


The background paper is a lovely soft pink flocked print....fabulous texture.


A piece of organza ribbon for a feminine touch to the tag. I stapled a tiny heart with my Tim Holtz tiny attacher.

Product List: Anna Griffin papers, ribbon, lace & metal leaf from my stash.

Be sure to stop by the Lasting Memories Blog and check out the rest of the Design Team's creations. Then link your Celebration of Love layout up before the end of the month.

I started my layout with some inspiration from a Citrus Twist Kits sketch....


I was also inspired by the challenge # 121 at The Paper Girl's Challenge to use Hearts
and 
Use Your Stuff Challenge #250 - Love is in the Air - Use Hearts 
and
Scrapping4Fun Challenges - Friends, Love, Wedding. Valentine.
