Hawaii Wedding Scrapbook Layout 1

Created this scrapbook layout of 
my husband's niece's wedding 
(his youngest brother's next to
oldest daughter) beach wedding 
in O'ahu Hawaii that we attended 
Sat. Mar 24. This was a first for
us attending a beach wedding.

Used Summer Samba scrapbook 
paper that I had won from Quick 
Quotes blog. Liked the way the paper
had an Hawaiian feel to it.

Chose to print a 5" x 7" of wedding 
photo. Added matting of her wedding 
colors bright yellow & bright green. 
Added lace. Used a die cut & vellum 
that I did hand calligraphy on.  I like to
calligraphy on vellum because I can
use a lined index card under it to keep
my writing in a straight line. Added 2 
pearls to hold the vellum in place.
