My layout today appears clean and simple - but it was not simple. LOL! I was inspired by a layout that seems to pop up each time I visit Pinterest for ideas. Since I had time today, I decided to finally CASE it.
Entering the layout in Challenge #165 (Anything Goes) at Crafting from the Heart.
Story behind the layout: This layout is for my wedding album. After deciding to get married on a 19th century train, I told only one person whom I wouldn't be able to invite. She asked a question I really hadn't thought of - were we going to follow a 19th-century theme? Hmmm....there's an idea. So my dress was custom designed to resemble 19th-century fashion. My husband is a Civil War buff - so we actually tried to pick our date to coincide with annual Civil War re-enactments at the park. They had no date scheduled - so in order not to lose the hall, we scheduled our wedding. We were pleasantly surprised six months later to learn the re-enactment would take place the same weekend we picked! So we were able to arrange to have a Civil War Honor Guard - and as we walked to the reception area, all the lounging re-enactors stood and cheered. We also had a chance to participate in their annual ball. It was so much fun to have the re-enactors help make our day extra special.
