To the one I laugh layout with Quick Quotes Celebrate

Good morning Quick Quotes readers!  Alicia here today with more wedding photos,  I have created a double page layout and I used the beautiful and limited Celebrate paper this time.  I was first inspired by the vellum wedding quote "A Toast".  I knew I had some lovely pictures of the toast at my wedding to use and I went from there...

The quote had some beautiful butterflies on it but I wanted to make them pop.  I took a water pen and dabbed it in my Bloody Mary PowderPuff and my Rusty Nail PowderPuff inks and colored on the back of the vellum behind the butterflies.  I tried to stay in the lines but because I was coloring from behind any little mistakes are behind the black lines and won't show.  I also used adhesive under the colored areas and tucked the top under the ribbon for a secure but unnoticeable adhesion.

I used my Cricut and cut some butterflies out of the Celebrate paper.  Of course, every piece was inked generously with my Powder Puff chalks.  I also had some of the wide Cranberry Grosgrain ribbon that matched the Celebrate paper perfectly!  It was so wide I thought it looked good as a title ribbon across the top of the layout.  I took the title from the quote and cut it with my Cricut.  I wanted a different font for at least one word.  I found this large foam "laugh" stamp and used Bloody Mary PowderPuff ink to stamp it.  I notched the ends of the ribbon and still had a bit left over.

I created some folded ribbons with the remainder and notched those ends and topped with one of my butterflies.  I added a few gems and all done!  A simple but elegant layout!
