Picture Perfect – A Heritage Scrapbooking page

The name of this Marion Smith paper so suits this photo. Don’t you just love these happy occasions where no one smiles, although I do see a hint of a smile on my grandmother’s face – seated bridemaid on the left. The bride is my grandmother’s sister and the groom is her brother in law on both sides – her husband’ brother and her sister’s husband. The two sisters, married brothers. My grandfather stands between my grandmother and the little girl (the groom’s sister). The bride’s father (my great grandfather) stands behind my grandmother. Not sure why his wife wasn’t in this family photo. The newspaper article to the right of the photo gives a full description of the wedding party, the material of the brides dress and veil, the colours of the bridemaids and flower girl dresses and head gear, the names of the flowers carried and the colours of the outfits that the bride and groom mothers’ wore. My grandfather’s twin brother and brother of the groom is on the right end. This picture –  A Taonga to cherish. (Taonga means a treasure).

I used cold tea to die the Title, Flourish and the paper flowers. The doily die is such a coincidence. It is a Cherry Lynn die and I didn’t realsie until I started the project that it is exactly the same die as used on the background paper – bottom corner.  I cut it out of kitchen baking paper with a piece of cream cardstock below it when I cut, so cut two doilies at the same time.

When I put the picture up here I thought that I would cover the small picture in the bottom corner with a head shot of the bride and groom – back to the photo shop again!!!
