Wedding Relief

I am trying to make as much progress as I can on my daughter-in-law's wedding album while I am on Summer break and today, I just finished another page.  I have been taking an online class from Get it Scrapped called On a Shelf.  It is a very interesting class, goes a little fast for a person who primarily makes cards, but still has been helpful to me while I make this book.
Here's today's page which is based on Lesson One where you make a scrapbook page with one picture on the imaginary shelf:

The page has one of my very favorite wedding pictures taken just after the ceremony concluded.  Andy and Ashley had been nervous wrecks in the hours leading up to the actual ceremony.  Once it was over, their mood totally changed to one of total relief.  Relief that they could relax and breathe again.  Ashley was laughing and Andy was so happy.  I love this picture, especially printed in black and white.  The layout is practically the same used in the lesson and I added some embellishments both stamped and cut with dies and on my Silhouette.  It is hard to tell  in the picture, but there is a sheet of polka dot vellum underneath the photo mat and some zig zag stitching at the top and bottom.  The patterned papers are from the digital collection I am using for the entire album.  To see some of the other pages for the wedding album, just click on the label Scrapbook on the right hand side of my blog.

I can see why you love this photo. It's so fabulous. I just love the way they are smiling and looking at each other. And, your scrapbook page--with all the different papers, die cuts and stitching is just so sweet.

What a stunning layout and such a fantastic photo Cathy! So many wonderful elements, yet so CAS. Congrats on Top Three BTW!

Love that picture ! Oh they do look so happy! I know how that must fill your heart with joy.
I do see the vellum and the entire page is gorgeous and looks very professional. Nice when you can incorporate something you just learned into the layout. This is going to be one special book!

The photo steals the show! A perfect moment captured that says it all... they look so happy - its hard to tear my eyes away and roam the rest of the page. Maybe that is what you had in mind - letting the pictures take center stage.. I like the subtle stitching and the understated elegance.
