Secret Staircase....

This layout was inspired by the super talented Mellette Berezoski! Check out some of her work if you have time! I loved the color combo of pink and green that she used on one of her MM layouts and wanted to give it a try on my wedding themed LO:

This is actually an 8" x 8" layout - very rare that I do small layouts - but the photo I used was small and was actually perfect for this very simple and subtle look. I kept it as clean and simple as possible. Another rarity for me, I usually like to pack on so many embellies - sometimes it is hard to just stop and not add more to your layout.

Here is a close-up of the pocket tag I made:

Slide it out and it reveals the fun, hidden on image for a larger view of the journaling:

The journaling reflects just how important all the little details were when planning any wedding! And now, even though life is so busy, hectic, and you have so many more responsibilities - it's still fun to look back and remember just how crazy it was to have even 'the littlest things' added to your memorable day!

Overall, I wouldn't have changed it for anything! To all the brides out there - Have your wedding simply your way, make it your own style - and enjoy every moment of it!

Materials used:

Papers: SEI and Papertrey Ink.
