With This Ring

Todays challenge at "Lasting Memories" is #226 and its anything goes with the month long theme of 'Life's Moments'    I've been busy the last few days doing more wedding layouts from my daughters May wedding.    She has seen a lot of what I have made but I'm trying to fill in and get every part of the wedding and reception covered because I am going to spend a full day with her in a couple of weeks and I want to take the album to them to look at again.     I couldn't believe I hadn't made a layout of them exchanging rings.   The photographer (in my opinion) didn't do a good job on some of the key ceremony pics but he did get this top one and then one of their friends got this close up of Leslie putting on Jason's ring and posted it on Facebook so I thrilled to have it.

There is also another challenge I will be entering this layout in.   "Scrapping 4 Fun" has challenge #34 posted  and its 'All About Love'  You can make anything that has something to do with love, a card, a layout, mixed media, it can be Valentine or Wedding theme like I did or just so its all about love.  

And a sidenote.   The photo of the layout didn't turn out as well as I would have hoped with the chine of some of the background paper and the the tile embellie.   I had add the clear quote square to the layout and just love that, but still felt like it needed something else, so I had this gold leaf and it wasn't standing out enough against the gold words on the paper so I matted it in black,   To go opposite of my title.   It was just a diecut and I put it on black and then matted it in gold.   But I digress, the picture of the completed layout I feel makes the leaf look like a banana and I promise in real life you can see its a leaf.   :)

So be sure and go check out the last challenge of the month  HERE  at "Lasting Memories."   You still have till the end of the month to do any of the challenges.
