8/1 HNC - Here Comes the Bride Doll

For this challenge, I tried to make a layout unlike my usual style and attempted an art journaling style. I don't think this truly is that style, but it is definitely outside my comfort zone. It took me MUCH longer than an hour, but I had fun playing with different styles, overlays, masks, fonts, etc.

Liz surprised me one day with my old bride doll that she had stored for years while we lived I Japan. I was completely flabbergasted!
