When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

My scrapbook page started out with this beautiful picture of my Mother-in-law in her gorgeous wedding gown, then I wondered what to do next...and thought maybe their 50th anniversary picture would be a good additive. 

I stamped the ODBD Love One Another, hearts and I was so afraid to colour them burgundy, cause it is a dark colour, so  I chose a red for the roses, and the ribbon,  and then cut them out... and put on Crystal Effects.. there's a close up further down.

Here is a close up of the flower spray...

Here is a close up of the Hearts which I cut out and put on Crystal Effects.

LOVE your page, Jan. . .so much intricate and beautiful detail from the flower spray, with the sweet little flowers from the blue and white DP, to the innovative use of the crystal effects. . .really adds the WOW factor. I really like the contrast in colors of the DP in the photo frames and the background! Lovely work! Hugs and blessings!

Jan, what a gorgeous tribute to your MIL, she was such a beautiful bride way back when. I love that you have combined that wedding day picture with the 50th Anniversary picture, so nice to see that a marriage can last that long. Now a days people don't take those vows not that serious anymore!! I absolutely LOVE your layout. Thanks for sharing!! Sorry I am so very late commenting, I have lots going on at my kids school, please forgive me. Hugs and blessings, Sabrina
