Beautiful Simplicity

You might have noticed that I've been featuring a lot of Kaisercraft based projects lately.  As you may know, Kaisercraft is doing a design team call out, and I'm planning on throwing my hat in the ring - I don't know if I'll be lucky enough to score a place on the design team (there's soooo many talented scrapbookers out there!), but if you don't try, you'll never succeed. 
Is there a Kaisercraft project I've done on here that you especially like?  If so, please leave a comment - I'd love some feedback on which layouts have been your favourites! It might make sorting out which projects to include in my application a bit easier! 
Meanwhile, my project tonight features the heavenly greens of the brand spanking new "Chapter One" collection.  I loved the specialty paper this month, It's a printed acetate, "Strength".  Acetate is a fantastic medium, but I love the simplicity of printed acetate - this layout virtually put itself together. 
I chose the paler green "Reflect" paper for the background, and layered up two photos from my wedding day.  I really loved the quote "Nothing is worth more than this day", so I layered that (cut from the "Belief" paper).  Finally, I placed my printed acetate sheet over the top of it all, and used a couple of tiny spots of glue to hold it in place - making sure that the glue spots were only placed where it would be concealed by the printing. 
To add a bit of glamour to the page, I glitzed the teal flourishes and leaves with some kindyglitz, in Crystallina. 
Simple, romantic, and timeless!

Materials used : Chapter One Collection papers - Reflect, Belief, and Strength Specialty Paper ; Kindyglitz - Crystallina; clear drying craft glue.
