I made one after my wedding pics came back.  I’m very much into scrapbooking so I used some inspiration from them.  Sorry I don’t have a picture but here’s a description:

  • 12X12″ frame, with a backing of some lace-patterened scrapbook paper
  • Top Left: the 3D flower from my wedding dress (about 5″ diameter?, white) and a couple tiny fake hydranges that I used for aisle decor
  • Top Right: Our wedding invitation, positioned diagonally, with a blue background framing it
  • Middle Left: a 4X6″ pic of us coming up the aisle during the recessional
  • Middle Right: invitation extends down
  • Bottom Left: My garter, positioned diagonally (opposite direction of invite)
  • Bottom Right: A wallet-sized pic of our reception centerpieces.

That’s it!  I relly liked combining 3D elements with the flat ones… just like a real scrapbook page.
