There was a lot of love and meaning while creating this layout.
I was inspired with this fun challenge over at
|life is GOOD|
In April, (April 25th) my hubby and I celebrate our wedding anniversary.
This year, tradition has us all about wood.
We were challenged to use 4 items from the list of 10. I went with: mist /paint, a flourish, handmade flower, embossing and baker's twine.
I chose Studio Calico; Yearbook Collection (how fitting!) as my background.
I spritzed it with copper sheer shimmer and inked with bark ink.
I accented our photo with a heart lace doilie
I handmade the flower using MME paper, hand punch, embossing folder,
MME decorative brad (centre) along with LYB stick pins; wood words
romantic - right!?
I love wood flourishes - that is my last one! So, if I win, I know exactly what I'd like to order *wink
~ just sayin'
In my stash, I had this MME Citron "Party" Wood Frame
...just perfect for this LO. A little bark ink, and I accented the frame
with brown bakers twine, Thickers; Jewelry Box, and this lil'set of key-ring
I accented the number 5
I faux stitched it and created a sign;
side by side
year by year
I had to add a rub-on (a fav right now) and a mini-wooden word
all in my stash.
I love how this LO came together, keeping our love pure and our picture romantic.
This LO is going in a frame and hanging on our wall (today)
~ this is kinda a BIG deal (we don't hang portraits?!)
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY Babe
do it all over again!
you are the love of my life
Thank you for stopping by
