Have you seen the movie, Bridesmaids? It is on my top Top 3 Most Hilarious Movies list. Now, I'm sure that the timing of when this movie came out has something to do with how it 'struck a chord' with me. The movie came out in May 2011; I was married a month later.

A few weeks before the wedding, several bridesmaids, my Mom, Grandma, and (now) Mother-in-Law took me to the theater to see Bridesmaids and we had a blast! When creating my layout, I decided to pay homage to the movie by using my favorite quote, "You are more beautiful than Cinderella. You smell like pine needles and have a face like sunshine". I figured it summed up my girls quite nicely. *giggle*
My Cut Search to find cartridges that would have the words I was looking for and pieced the quote together, ransom note-style). And to be honest, while making this layout, I didn't write down all the cartridges I used. Some words were part of other phrases, some were stand-alone and others are just made using alphabet cartridges.
Don't be afraid to mix lots of fonts on your pages. It adds such a fun touch!
Not a lot of stamping was done on this layout - I saved it only for the little banner on the first page and the movie title at the bottom of the second (MCT's Just Simply Live stamp set).
The jeweled accents were hand-set and the white, sparkly "BRIDES" and pink "pine" & "like" are chipboard letters. I used some Star Dust Stickles to add more sparkle to the quote.
This is definitely a busy layout - but every once in a while - I like a little 'busy' *smile*
