Layout of the Week August 6 -- Patti!

For this week's Layout of the Week at Cookin' Up Creations,  I chose this layout by Patti (ksj351):

I loved Patti's clean, simple design and the black/white color scheme. I also loved that big title and the exaggerated T. This is a stunning layout to show off a beautiful photo of a bride and groom!

Come on over to the Cookin' Up Creations gallery to see what Patti and our other members have been creating. And be sure to join in our daily "Blue Plate Special" challenges. This month's theme is "ON THE RADIO", featuring inspiration from our favorite songs.
