Love of a Lifetime

This is another layout I did for my friend from school..only this time it was a gift for his wife. He's supposed to be giving it to her tonight, so I'm excited to see if she liked it. I haven't had the pleasure of meeting her yet, but really hope to soon!

This layout was done using K & Company Blue Awning patterned paper, black card stock, card board and embroidery floss in a light blue color. The floral vine is handmade by me using the same patterned paper. I used Scribbles 3 D paint to make the dot swirls on the right side. The letters are from Fresh Paint and are originally pink. I used permanent marker in black to change their color. Two strips if card board are used to lift the letters off of the background piece and add depth. The photo is mounted on cardboard and black card stock. Small black fans in the corners of the photo are made simply by folding a piece of card stock fan style and gluing it down. A black piece of lace tied in a bow adds the finishing touch!

Thanks for dropping in for a spell and come back soon!
