Bride's Bouquet

12" x 12" Page
Since I've been taking the My Digital Studio class, all I've wanted to work on are scrapbook pages.  When I saw the A La Card Monkey Challenge #99, it looked like a great layout for a scrap page.  Photos from two family weddings (including my son's) are waiting to be preserved for posterity.  This challenge was also to include flowers.  The 
colors from the Stampin' Royalty Challenge #115 looked like they would complement this photo from my son's wedding.  I hope this scrapbook page is an okay substitute for the card challenge.

One of the things I am having a hard time mastering is the layering on the pages.  I've lost layers on pages but I guess I'll figure this
out the more I do.  On this page I also was practicing lining up and centering the vintage flowers.  The text is always fun to play with; the hard part is choosing a font that seems just right for the page.  Changing the opacity of the papers and colors also lets you add more interest to the page.  I loved this picture of my daughter-in-love's bouquet on the hood of the car.  When they started planning their wedding, one of the first things my son said he wanted to do was rent a vintage car for their wedding day.  Hence, the title on the page.  Now that I've got one under my belt, there seems to be no excuse to not complete a whole book.  Thanks for stopping by.  I know I had fun being creative; I hope you get a chance to do the same.

Patti, I love that you used the sketch for a page and what a gorgeous photograph it is. Fabulous job. So glad you shared it with us at A La Card Monkey this week

I think your page looks terrific. I've found that when building anything in MDS, it's best to start from the back. Once you have a few layers you like, you could select them all and click "group." That'll keep them together, and it's easier to keep the layers in order too. Thanks for taking part in our Monkey Challenge this week!
