Karen is a layout master, and we just love this Couture layout with its beautiful composition and florals.

"This photo of my daughter was taken at the first wedding she attended as an (almost) grownup, when she was about 15. She is a farm girl at heart, and spends most of her time in jeans, and work boots, so, I was very happy to get this lovely, girly photo of her, and the Courture papers were just perfect to create the elegant, sophisticated look wanted." - Karen
