First was inspired by the Color Challenge over at Stampin' Celebration ... just such pretty spring colors I just had to use them to scrap the digital conversion of my parents wedding!
First is the right hand side of my layout ... I used the Shades of Spring Designer Series paper as well as the Springtime Vintage which both showcased the colors in the Stampin' Celebration challenge well with Rose Red, Always Artichoke and accented it with Perfect Plum and Certainly Celery.
The sentiment Celebrate is actually from the Chat Room Celebrate download and I blocked out the part that said 'the everyday' with a punch and matching DSP to the background!
I played with the Paper Daisy and inserted it as a photo so I could crop the image around the photos as well as used the drop shadow to color the others Perfect Plum.
I stamped the Cherry Blossoms from the Easter Blossoms set onto the Plum Purple square and change the opacity of both to 60% to make it a softer look. I really love viewing all our old photos and am so grateful to my Aunt for taking the time to be keeper of the family memories both her own and mine by extension and the extra time in converting all of these wonderful memories to digital.
My parents marriage might not have been destined to last a lifetime and is often recollected with 'bitter memories of divorce' - however being able to look back and see that at one time they were indeed happy and in love and knowing it was those wonderful times that brought my siblings and I to where we are today - it is very cathartic to scrap those memories into something beautiful and remember that while their life's journey may have had some bumps in the road and ultimately taken them in different paths - there is a reason to still celebrate that time in their life's - for without it we would not be here!
