To the best of my knowledge this my great grandparent's wedding photo. I used some editing to create the individual pics from the original portrait. I am really inspired to get started documenting my family tree....few relatives left to help put the pieces together but through ancestry.com I was able to contact a third cousin who has already offered so much help to get me started....if you're reading this Mike a big cyber hug and many thanx!!
I used my fave K&Co papers for this layout (sketch by pagemaps). I also added some sheet music, lace, pearl necklace, bling, prima and handmade flowers. The title is cut from Heritage.
My frames, birds and marquee are from Sentimentals. The other cricut cuts are the Home Decor flourish.
I had purchased some old sheet music from a flea market and ran across these pages of The Wedding of Punch and Judy.....lol....I thought some of the words from the song worked really well for the theme of this page. My roses are the Tim Holtz that everyone is making right now. I also added some of the lace flowers I've been making from an old doily.
The light frame in this photo has been accented with paper glaze to help it stand out a bit from the background paper.
Some buttons for flower centers and accents...the letters for the initials are cut from Storybook.
I added a little poem that I thought of as I made this layout...Computer generated with Isabella font.
another doily flower....
The poem reads....
A little bird once told me of your legacy of love,
how two hearts were joined, with blessings from above.
But I only know small pieces of this tale you see,
I wish that you could bend from Heaven and tell the rest to me.
I know that my great grandmother passed away when my grandmother was very very young....I wish I knew the rest of the story....maybe I'll find out!
Thanx for stopping by today...don't forget to check out the rest of the DT's creations for this fab sketch....come along and play with us if you have time!!!!
