Life is Measured in Moments

I have to admit when I opened this kit and saw all those lovely American Crafts papers, I panicked, mine were all from the wedding collection and were all grey, but having spent plenty of time playing with them and stroking them I now really like them, I have realised that the grey allows the pictures to really stand out whilst being a easy, neutral colour to work with, it really is very flexible!! So on that note, this is my latest LO from the kit.
These are pictures of my parents wedding from 1975, I decided to mount all the pictures onto the blue glimmer paper from the Vintage Sarapapers collection, it really is beautiful, (but unfortunately it doesn't scan as nicely as I would like) and then I laid them onto the American Crafts Wedding "Tulle" paper, these are lovely to work with and they have co-ordinating colours on the reverse. I laid the HOTP Marriage acetate overlay on the top for the title and I have held it in place with with a HOTP brad buddie from the Pretty Creative Kit. I finished it off in the bottom right corner with a "Time" charm which reads "Life Is Measured In Moments".
