Unbelievable Love Mixed Media Layout with Video Tutorial for Scraps of Elegance Kits

Hi everyone, I'm excited to be sharing my first project as a Scraps of Elegance Educator featuring the April 'Lynne's Garden Terrace' kit. This gorgeous kit features Paper and elements from Prima's Butterfly Collection, BoBunny Garden Journal Collection, and much more.

My dear friend, Mandy is excited to be married in June. She was very close to her grandparents who are no longer with us. She sent me a few of their wedding photos to create a special piece to represent their presence at her wedding. I couldn't resist using this one to also create a layout of this special couple who are so obviously happy and in love. The feathered background and bird images have special meaning since Mandy and her grandmother spent many special moments observing the birds in the country setting where her grandparents lived.
