Color Dare Wedding Layout

My daughter got married in July...of 2009.  Yep, I'm behind on my scrapbooking.  This week's challenge over at Color My Heart is Sweet Leaf, Topiary, and New England Ivy.  This monochromatic color scheme works really well when you have lots going on in your photo, and particularly when your background is filled with trees.  Like this:

I tried to center my photo of this layout, but you might notice the edges are not exactly square.  They are on the real page.  Honest!  And how much simpler can this layout get?  It's just three strips of paper in various widths. 

The L&D logo was designed using some Cricut cartridges (Graphically Speaking and Base Camp) along with the Design Studio and Juke Box accessories.  They allowed me to mix and match, weld, size, and stretch until we had created a unique logo for their wedding (see this post to see how this was used on the invitations).  I wanted to show you something similar using the CTMH Art Philosophy and/or Artiste cartridges, but I had to make an unexpected trip out of town.

Sometimes simple is best.

Until next time,


  1. Hope everything is alright, Becca. I adore this layout oh so much. I am a simple girl at heart and this is fabulously so! Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. You say simple, I say FABULOUS! Love that you let the picture speak for itself. It's beautiful.


  3. What a beautiful bride! I really love your use of green on this scrapbook page. Hope you get caught up on the scrspbook pages. Lol

  4. I love your scrapbook layout, Becca! The few strips of greens in different shades really accentuate the awesome photograph! Very nicely done--I look forward to seeing what you come up with next week in the Color Dare!

  5. So nice to see a scrapbook layout amongst the cards, and lovely that you shared such a special photograph. What a wonderful setting for a wedding photo; those green strips set it off so nicely, vs being distracting. Very intriguing logo!

  6. pięknie, no po prostu uroczo..

  7. I LOVE that picture, Becca. And your simple green strips and elegant monogram make it look that much more stunning! So glad that you made a layout this time around!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. You bless me!
