The picture is of my adorable little cousins on my hubby and I's wedding rehearsal  They were hamming it up for the camera that day! :)

I wanted this layout to be happy and sunny as both girls are so energetic  I stamped, colored and fuzzy cut the arch window and added it tot he corner of the photo. the girls were actually sitting in an arch in this picture although it's hard to tell.

Keeping with the bright and sunny layout, i stamped and die cut a bunch of yellow Malabar blooms and added a dew drop for the center. I also made some greeneries and added it tot he cluster as well.

Here's a close up of some of the flowers.

The sentiment included in this set was perfect for this photo! i stamped it and the pattern paper and cut/emboss with my grand calibur machine. I pop dotted it to make it stand out a bit more.

Finally, I also added some dimensional flowers to the top left corner of the layout to balance the blooms in the bottom.

Here is the step by step write-up for this project:
Trim 1/4” off two sides of the background pattern paper. Use the Distress it all tool to distress the edges. Make four peek a boo areas on the paper by tearing away small pieces of pattern papers as shown. Ink the edges with the Tim Holtz blending tool and Vintage Photo distress ink. Layer this pattern paper over a dark blue paper. Distress and ink this new layer as before. Adhere to another background pattern paper and machine stitch all around the edge. Punch around the edges a 8” square of pattern paper using Martha Stewart punch. Layer this piece over the center of the layout. Add your 4”x6” picture right over the center. Cut strips of different sizes of pattern paper and cut a V notch at the end. Lightly ink these layers and tuck in under the left side of the picture. Stamp and color with Prismacolor pencils the window from the Botanical Window PreCut Set. Fuzzy cut and add over the right side of the picture. Stamp, die cut and shape a bunch of different size Malabar flowers in yellow. Layer to give the bigger ones more dimension. Add flowers to the bottom side of the picture. Tuck in two greeneries from the Western Broncos Die in the cluster as well. Scatter some flowers over the top left and bottom right corner as shown. Add dew drops as flower centers and add glitter to the flowers. Stamp the sentiment on a light blue pattern paper. Die cut and emboss using labels 4. Lightly ink the edges. Pop dot this sentiment over the left side of the photo.
