Nature Blends and We Are 3 for a Wedding Layout

Gene and I got married 14 years ago!  A beautiful day at Huckleberry Railroad and Crossroads Village (Genesee, Michigan).  We took all our guests on a 19th-Century train to the outside ceremony - we got married with the train holding all our guests in a semi-circle backdrop.  Gene and I rode back to the village in first-class style - in the caboose.
For this layout, I used a touch of Nature Blends from We Are 3 for a watercolor accent.

Just Admiring the Beauty

Here in Southern Arizona, cacti are blooming - a sight to behold!  Here's my take on these blooming cacti using We Are 3's Black and White as a background.  My cacti are paper pieced using We Are 3's Watercolor Batik.

Sketch Challenge at The Outlawz

Displaying SC051618.jpg

I have been enjoying working on Sketch Challenges at The Outlawz.  For this particular sketch, I decided to create a scrapbook layout, rather than a card.  The photo will be of my grandson playing in the snow.  Once I'm able to add the photo, where you see tan, the photo will show through.  It's a fun way to kind of frame the photo.  As you can see, I turned the layout sideways.  I used We Are 3 papers (Vintage Carnival).
