Lasting Memories #241 - Beautiful Bride

Good Sunday morning and Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms out there! We have had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend filled with lots of family and memory making.

I am back today with the new challenge from Lasting Memories. The theme for May is Life Affirmations and this week's challenge is - Beautiful - make a layout about someone or something that is beautiful.

I snapped this photo of my beautiful daughter on her wedding day after the ceremony. She had found a few minutes to just relax after all of the excitement. She looks absolutely beautiful and so happy in this photo - and I'm sure just a little bit relieved that it was all over!

I used the April 1st sketch from Stuck?! Sketches. (One of these days I'll actually get around to using the sketch in the month it is posted!)

I stayed pretty true to the sketch - just adding a little cluster at the top for my journaling tag. I definitely wanted to keep the focus on the photo.
Be sure to stop by the Lasting Memories blog and see the rest of the beautiful creations from the design team. I hope you can find some time this week to get scrappy!
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Have a great day!
