Simply Beautiful

Here's a layout I recently did with a picture I took of my brother and his beautiful fiance in Kananaskis Country. I really felt that this picture captured the love between these two and I wanted to do something special with it.

I chose an appropriate themed paper - lovebirds and went for the layer look with my matting. I really like the layered look as it allows me to use different patterned papers in similar/complimentary colors from my leftovers pile. I recently purchased a new stamp set and found this layout the perfect place to use it. So I stamped the boy and girl in blue on the layout. I liked it but I thought it was missing something. I then remembered that I had these little adhesive pearls I bought a while back and thought they would work out great so I used them as buttons on the boys shirt. I then thought the girls dress needed something. I found these rhinestone shapes (hearts, flowers, stars, etc) at the local dollar store on one of Catherine's and mine shopping sprees and decided they would be perfect. In the center of the flower I stuck one of the pearls to pull it all together. Bling, that was it! I love how this layout turned out and came together really well. And the bonus to it all, everything with the exception of the stamp set I already had in my stash! How awesome is that! Yes I know, my stash is quite extensive so really it wasn't that hard.
