Pap and Grandma’s Wedding


I decided to do a heritage layout using some of Grandma Large’s and Pap Bill’s old wedding pictures. I really wanted to find a way to make the layout and still preserve the way the photos look – some were black and white, some were faded colors, and some had a vintage look to them.

Journaling reads:

January 18, 1957
On this day, Bill and Naomi pronounced their love for one another and were married as husband and wife. They both remember the day as one of the most important days of their lives. The preacher was late getting to the church, and Naomi?s brother had to go and get him. He had overslept after taking an afternoon nap. They both remember Bill?s friend showing up drunk, while inebriated trying to burn his tie, and then eventually passing out in the church. Later Bill?s cousin and some of their friends got in a car wreck on the way to the after-wedding party. Thankfully the next fifty years went much smoother than the actual day of their wedding, and despite it all Naomi is just thankful that so many of their friends and fmaily could be there on that cold winter night.

For this layout, I used Carina’s new calendar brushes. These are so cool, and I love the way this one turned out. Here’s a closer look at it:
