A True Love Story Never Ends

Good morning peeps! 

I had found this old photo of me and my sweet hubby the other day - it was from our very first New Year's Eve together when were first dating.  Oh, we were so YOUNG in it, lol.  When did we grow up?  It is one of my favorites of the two of us together.  Unfortunately, we don't have too many pics of us together and not enough, IMO.

I had scanned this pic into the computer but had left it in the scanner.  Hubby then had to use the scanner for something else and apparently took the photo out and put it on top of my desk; front and center.  Walking in to my crafty space, that was the first thing I saw, the photo of us on my desk...and I thought to myself that I'd really love to hang that up somewhere...and thats when the Mojo hit! 

So instead of a card today, or even a mini album, I'm sharing with you a layout that I created in between laundry and homemade pizza with the girls.

I used the current scrapbook sketch from The Pink Elephant' scrapbook sketch challenge #46 as insipration, which you can find by clicking here.  The papers are My Mind's Eye Pretty Please, which I just absolutely adore.  The flowers are a mix of Petaloo and Recollections.  I've stuck in some Tim Holtz tickets.  I also cut out some hearts with my Cricut Expression for the top right of the photo and in between those gorgeous flowers.

The sentiment was a die cut that came with the papers.  I stamped a sentiment from the MFT In My Garden Joline stamp set onto the die cut in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink. 

Voila! Now all I have to do is frame it and hang it up :)  Since I don't really take much time to scrapbook anymore, I'm really happy with how it came out!

Hoping that you have a great day and you have a fantastic start to your week.  Thanks for stopping by and for taking a peek!
