Quick Quotes - You are my Happily Ever After

Happy Friday Everyone! I don't know about you but when November rolls around each year, I start to think about the blessings I have and who/what I am truly thankful for. For me, it is my husband! He is such an amazing man. I know I don't always take the time to let him know how much he means to me, so I decided to do a layout dedicated to him.

 For this layout, I used two of the new Quick Quotes lines: Treasure Chest and Back to Basics. These papers go together so well that it is easy to combine these collections.

I had a little fun with the title and carried it across the page. The "You Are My" is on the banners with the rest of it ("Happily Ever After") made with larger chipboard letter stickers.

I added some inks and molding paste to the background and then layered the patterned papers. The texture of this paper is perfect for distressing the edges! I sometimes struggle with creating masculine layouts but these lines make it so easy!
