Tie the Knot

It is Fabulous Freebie Friday time with Sassy Studio Designs.  Today's free SSD image on Paper Craft Planet is Jenny the June Bride.  The challenge is Tie the Knot.  Use a ribbon and tie a knot or a bow on your project.


My niece just got married on May 19th.  I am currently working on a scrapbook of the wedding.  I thought this image would be perfect for the book.  I decided to do a page showing them getting ready right before the wedding with a focus on the bride.  I had camera issues big time with this one.  The background paper (from DCWV) has such a shine to it that the lighting just couldn't adjust.  The lighting in the brides picture made the background yellow and Grace blue.  

I still have to add a title to this page and do some journaling.  I made a second tag with pocket but the page was so busy already.   I think I added a bit too much to this page.  Make sure you head over to Paper Craft Planet and get your free image.  It is only available for 24 hours.  Also, SSD is have another mini release and blog hop tomorrow.  You won't want to miss it.  And if that isn't enough for you, we will be having a special treat on PCP coming up this month as well.  Check PCP for all the details.

Great page Rebecca. What a pretty bride your niece made! Love your coloring on the image as always. Really cool way you did the sparkle, it looks like a real beaded or sequined overlay on a real gown, brilliant!

Love, love, LOVE IT!!!
Not so keene on the scrapbook page though.

The card is gorgeous!!! I looked like that at my first wedding. I didn't carry roses though, I don't remember what I was holding - I was probably drunk. My dress had sleeves too, otherwise it looks just like I did that day. Babs was there, she would know.

LOVE the sparkles, love the coloring - YOU ARE AWESOME!!!
