looking in on the wedding

Posted by tralynn (My Page) on

Was wondering if anyone could help me out here. I would like to do a scrapbook of my parents marriage back in the 50's. Of course all pictures are black and white. What I am thinking of doing is make the page look like you are looking into the church and seeing it. Does anyone have ideas on how to make this happen. I don't even know how it would look, so maybe it isn't something that I would end up doing, but would like to give it a try. I will be doing a 12 x 12. Any ideas appreciated.

RE: looking in on the wedding

I think the best way to do it would be to have your scrapbook shaped like a church. you can leave an opening on one side of the cross positioned on top of your church portrayal. This would be in a book form...there will be very tiny, petite pages all cross bordered for some beautiful sayings.

While you can have the entire church book have pages within with snowflake watermarked pages, you can create these on MS word and print them. Google search for snowflakes, get the image and paste it as a water mark on MS Word and lo! Your pages have a background now. Keep it simple and do not add much yo-yo color to it.

On the first page of the church-shaped book, you can draw a maze with the single picture of your mom minimized to fit in accordingly, using photoshop

Have your dad placed below the maze waiting with a ring in his hand.

It will be more like a seeking game for the twosome on having a look at your craftsmanship.

Followed by this, you can have the outline-cut pictures of the very close guests with a text bubble drawn to mention some funny cute quotes and blessings.

you can also have cotton flakes placed on the paper to indicate snowfall and do not forget to bring in a toy car reading 'just married' with the actual pictures of the twosome.

for your church book, you can have a silky satin pink cloth on the door of the church, which when moved...reads Welcome or something that fancies you. This would be prior to opening the actual book. Lemme know if you like this. And yes, it is also important on how you present this scrapbook. I would suggest you have a personalized tote bag, a handbag with the picture of the gorgeous twosome, the bride and the groom, digitally imprinted on the bag. There are varieties of such. Check them out at
After all presentation does matter. Its captivating, the sight of the marriage album coming in beautiful bags that couples preserve for the lifetime. This would act like a perfect gift of memories and not a mere keepsake.
