Wedding Scrapbook Pages. Which Version Do You Like Best?

Here are two versions of some My Digital Studio Scrapbook Pages of my daughter’s wedding.  It took me several tries to get the pictures right since I seem to put the same pictures on both pages.  But I finally found a variety of pictures that I liked and seemed to work well together.

The Wedding Colors were pretty close to Pacific Point and Green Galore.  So that will explain the color combination I chose.  I put Baja Breeze mats under all the photos.  The Green Galore photo mat just looked too “neon” to make me happy, although my daughter might have liked the look.  I knew I wanted several pictures of the bride and groom, a large family shot, and pictures of each of the children.  It was so nice having most of the family together.  My one son is in Germany and was having Student Visa renewal issues.  It sure takes a long time to get all the red tape taken care of-no matter what country you seem to be in.

I also tried a variety of embellishments before I came up with the hearts.  I tried the soft blooms in Very Vanilla.  I tried Paper Daisies which I recolored.  I also experimented and used a Green Galore Drop Shadow.  It did look pretty interesting against the Pacific Point card stock.  I then tried the hearts which I decided I liked best.  Just so you know, some images are in the bleed area.  So if I print these I will have to do a little rearranging and squishing things together.  That’s what I get for turning it off!

Version 1:  I had Drop Shadows on everything including the stamps and text.
