There is no better feeling than being in love and no
celebration of that love more poignant than the wedding. The wedding day is dedicated to celebrating the bond that only two people in love can share. Think back to your own wedding, or any wedding you’ve ever attended, and immediately it conjures up images of the magical princess gown, the fragrant suffusion of flowers, the fairy-tale settings. It is a compilation of moments that stand out; the toss of the bouquet, the cutting of the cake.
The wedding day is full of those moments that we scrapbookers live to scrap. What could be more fun than pretty dresses, faultless makeup, styled hair, and flowers galore. Each moment is infused with meaning and each picture taken has its own special story to tell. No wonder such a large part of the scrapbooking industry is dedicated to making embellishments and papers to help us capture those moments with just the right layout.

Beautiful Bride by Natalija Elijas
Digital Supplies: Kit: Stories of the Past Value Collection by Lauren Bavin
(Digital Scrapbook Place), Software: Adobe Photoshop CS2, Fonts: Selfish, Sylphaen.
Design Notes: For the bottom left image, I masked out part of the photo with a large soft brush, then I changed it to Hard Light mode with a opacity of 50%. I
duplicated it and set the copy to Lighten and 45% opacity. I made a
third copy and changed its blend mode to Overlay and 18% to achieve
the blended effect. Then I put a Lace Circle element on the edge of
the photo and and changed its blend mode to Lighten/71% opacity. All
the other elements are just layered and clustered on the layout.
