Simple Elegance with Marcia!

Happy Presidents Day Quick Quotes friends! Marcia here today to host the blog and share some inspiration with you.

Quick Quotes has a gorgeous wedding collection called Simple Elegance that will be available to you in mid March. The black and white papers are perfect for weddings, prom, or any formal occasion. You can add any color you want and it will look fabulous.

Well, it inspired me to go through my wedding photo album to find something to scrap. I have only scrapped one other picture so far from our wedding 30 years ago! This one is a favorite of mine because these pictures were taken in the park where my husband proposed to me.


The black and white papers really set off the color photos. I wanted to create a stamped background to extend the outdoors and anchor the photos. I used Midnight Confessions Powderpuff ink, then embossed with a transparent sparkle embossing powder. It is subtle, but gives it a little bit of elegance I think.

Then, I added just a touch of color with some Pink Cheeks Powderpuff ink using my H2O pen. Unfortunately the sparkle doesn't come across in these pictures. Adding a few color coordinating flowers and the butterflies are the final touches.
