This is a "photo shoot" that was very spontaneous. Out of the cedar chest came the dress I wore as the flower girl to my Aunt's wedding. My 4yr old couldn't wait to play dress up with it. We had the best time together and from it came the most treasured pictures, wrinkled tulle, ribbons and all.

So with this lay-out I created a wonderful envelope to hold the story of this most treasured time and timeless dress.

This lay-out includes ribbon, flowers, white leaves and tulle (behind the matted picture) from the veil and dress. Don't you just love the fuzzy pink slippers with this dress??

It couldn't stop there. I put these precious little gloves with parts of the veil in a shadow box with a picture of me in the wedding and a picture, I won't say how many yrs later, of my 4yr.old in the same dress. The cedar chest preserved everything so beautifully with no hint of yellowing.

Just some wall art in our bedroom with some wonderful old oval buttons and big mother-of-pearl buttons. I covered the canvas with material that matches our quilt and edged it with lace.
The buttons are hot glued on (which I didn't think would hold long but it's been on our wall a couple years now).
