RJR_Task 8_Family Memories_Left
Left side of two page layout, my first two pager. Again, thanks for the great challenge and thanks so much to Brandy for her great inspiration with Smith Family Cruise.
PS: the color combination came from using Kuler.
Journaling on the right page:
My cousin Carol was married in December, 1961. Because her brother Joey and I were born only three days apart and he was to serve as a Junior Groomsman, I was asked if I would like to walk with him as a Junior Bridesmaid member of the wedding party. We shopped for dresses in Philadelphia, and red was chosen as the color since the event was close to Christmas. Carol chose taffeta fabric, which I loved. It was shiny and crinkled when I walked. I wore a puffy petticoat beneath the dress to make the skirt stand out. My favorite part of the outfit was the white fur muff each bridesmaid carried. It was covered with red baby roses and a long, white satin ribbon. Finally, a white fur headpiece with a short white veil completed the look. Each bridesmaid had her hair done in a french twist. I didnít really like that hairdo, but the bride was in charge. Joey wore a black tuxedo and looked very handsome. I remember that we had a lot of fun at the lovely wedding. The fabrics and colors and textures of that day were so appealing to me, and sparked a lifelong interest and love of sewing. I had always like words I found in books, such as taffeta, damask, dimity, crinoline and chiffon, but Carol's wedding was my first hands-on experience with them, and was a memory I never forgot.
