Our Love Story

Happy Friday! I am excited because it finally looks like we might get some warmer weather here in Texas this weekend! All I can say is it's about time!! I think all my friends are blaming me for bringing the Indiana winter here!

We have a new challenge for you this week at Frosted Designs!! With Valentine's around the corner, we thought it would be a good idea to share the love... so the challenge this week is to use the word LOVE on your card, layout or project!

As many of you know, I just returned from a long weekend in Cabo and while we were there, we took a sunset cruise (me and hubby with mom and dad!) Of course, this was just the perfect opportunity to take photos and this photo is from that cruise...


I titled it Our Love Story because both us had a lot happen in our lives before we ever even met and those events finally brought us together. (This is a long story... maybe someday I will share all the details!) Sometime you know it's a "God thing" when it all works out! We are an example of that!


I thought I would share a few close ups... I really am trying to add journaling to my LOs... not an easy task for me!


I loved the way I was able to use different fonts and colors for the title! (In real life the word love looks more red and less orange!)

I also entered this into the Sisterhood of Crafters Valentine Challenge!

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to stop by Frosted Designs to see what the rest of the team did with this challenge! And don't forget, we are currently having a Design Team call at Frosted Designs... I hope you will consider applying!

Hi, Barb! I just have to say WOWZA about this layout! It is absolutely stunning...the details of all the embellishments are a perfect choice and the photograph that you used is beautiful!
