Good evening everyone, I have another wedding layout to share with you tonight.

This layout is from the first time out dress shopping. It was the last day of a Bridal store closeout. We did buy one of the dresses, but my daughter decided later that it was not the dress. Oh well, we had fun for our first Bridal dress shopping experience!!!

Here is each page close up...

And some closeups....

I fussy cut the So Much Beauty wreath and then clustered it with a popped up Ampersand and my favourite embellishment to create...a pin wheel that I topped with a heart button.

When I saw the sketch, I knew I wanted to fold the corners and add some lace as an accent. I attached it with a white safety pin.

Some organza ribbon added a nice feminine touch.

I created the dress form dress with two different die cuts, added a little stenciling to the top and then wrapped a piece of lace from my Great Aunt to create a little dress. I also tucked a hidden pocket with a journaling tag to add some private thoughts on under the little dress.

Product List: DCWV - Honey Chic stack, Heidi Swapp chipboard, lace, ribbon, heart button and pins from my stash.

I used the sketch from Stick It Down for my starting point. I loved the clusters of photos as it allowed me to use all of the photos that I took...and the corner accents. 

Thanks for stopping by! Stay Crafty!!!
