First project for Practical Scrappers

Happy Friday everyone! This morning I have my first project for the Practical Scrappers Design Team to show you. This week they are celebrating their first anniversary so they are doing a special challenge each day and they are also having a great online crop that you can get involved in! The challenge for today was to you "first" in your layout somehow...first birthday, first house, first anniversary, etc... I decided to scrap a picture I have had for about three years of my husband and I with the top layer from our wedding cake. For the layout I used Glimmer Mist (brown, red, and pink colors...can't remember their specific names) and misted it on a piece of white cardstock. I used the Blush collection by Basic Grey for the strips of patterned paper, and then used flowers for the accent corner. I had a really big flower that I wanted to use, but since it was too big, I folded it and half and used buttons and brads to decorate the flowers. I cut out journaling strips on brown cardstock and used my Cricut for the title. It was a pre-designed cut that said "Happy Anniversary" and was fused together. I just cut the Happy off of the top, cut a 1 out and hand-wrote the st. Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!
