My wedding Night

I've been sitting on this layout idea for a while and finally stuck it down. I used mostly items from the Scrap That! July kit. This is a picture taken on my wedding night at 11 pm. We were sunburnt, tired and windblown - and it's one of my faves, LOL.

I kept it simple in terms of embellies and used traditional and water methods of distressing. I also finally had an excuse to use my new music stamp too!

Design Tip: To achieve rugged distressing, heavily use an edge distressing tool, then wet the edges of the paper with your fingers (the wetter the more distressed it will look)... then start crumpling as you wish. Once dry I add ink for a grunge look.

You were a beautiful bride and this layout has wonderfully distressed background papers.
