A wedding, cooking, and Sherlock Holmes!

Hi, all! No, I am not cooking for Sherlock Holmes' wedding! lol! These are the subjects/inspirations for my next batch of layouts! My oldest daughter just got married last month and I have begun her wedding scrapbook album. The first two pages I created were of the bride and groom individually. I have also created a layout about the same daughter when she was a freshmen in high school and participating in an "Iron Chef" competition. The last layout is one that I created for the Screen to Scrap July Challenge with this month's movie poster being Sherlock Holmes. Thanks for looking!

Bride layout. This is my oldest daughter, Janie. She was married on June 27 at the Justice of the Peace. I took the photos for the wedding so they are not the best quality but doesn't she look beautiful? I am using black, white, and baby blue as the colors for her wedding album because the groom, the father-of-the-bride, and brother-of-the-bride were all wearing blue, the bride wore white, and black is such a great accent to both those colors. Made the roses our of sheer ribbon and cut the leaves with the Cricut and added pearls. The paper is covered by a piece of lace from the wedding dress that was left after being altered.

This is a close-up of the ribbon flowers I made of the Bride layout.

Groom layout. This is Dennis, my new son-in-law. He wore blue to the wedding so I saw it as only fitting to use blue in the layouts. I made the roses and the pleated border, punched the black and white papers and stamped some flourishes in the corners. I also added pearls around his photo.

What's Cooking? layout. This is my daughter Janie a few years ago while she was a freshmen in high school. She was in an Iron Chef competition at her school and she and her team won second place! I followed a sketch and the palette colors from The Color Room - Palette #9. I have missed quite a few challenges all ready and don't really plan to enter any but I love their color choices so I have decided to complete the challenges at my pace and for my enjoyment.

Welcome Home layout. I completed this layout for the Screen to Scrap July Challenge which had the Sherlock Holmes movie poster for inspiration. The photo is of my husband and my son reunited after my husband's second tour in Iraq. Lots of Tim Holtz embellishments in this one. I also inked the edges of the paper in Broken China and Weathered Wood. I also covered the grungeboard elements with silver and Turquoise Stickles and stamped a few images then covered them with fragments.
