You + Me = Love

Hello paper crafters!  Today I'm sharing a layout designed with a photo of my in-laws, Chris and Fred Waldorf.  Married 48 years!  You don't hear that very often these days.  2 very special people with hearts that overflow with love, kindness, and the spirit of giving.  They are a blessing to all of us!


Project Details

Patterned Paper : "Happy" from "The Good Life" line by Fancy Pants
Stamps : Hero Arts "Friendly Flags", 7 Gypsies "You + Me = Love", Gina K. Designs "Lovely Labels 2", Hampton Art (love heart), Technique Tuesday (script heart)
Dies : Cheery Lynn Designs (Nautical Wheeler doily)
Punch : Marvy Uchida (small butterfly)
Paper / flower embellishments : Dear Lizzy "Neapolitan" Emphemera Flowers
Smaller doily's and white butterflies : Martha Stewart
buttons : Jenni Bowlin Studio Vintage Style Buttons


Scrappin' Happy - Use a one word title - "Love"
Scrap Fit - bows or buttons
Bearly Mine - pearls and swirls  (I have a swirly pearl embellishment extending from the top of the "you + me = love" image and one along the bottom under the love and butterfly, but I realized it's diffictult to see)
Top Tip Tuesday - things with wings
Word Art Wednesday - "kindness"
Let's Craft and Create - borders (lace border below photo)
Simon Says - dies or punches (doily die and small butterfly punch)
The Paper Shelter - love beats all
Fairytale - use a photo


And here is another layout with a photo of my daughter Nicole and her cousin Adrienne.  They were at the end of a tunnel slide.  I used lots of old chipboard elements and buttons on this one.  And I"m linking it to the October challenge over at "Scrap It Girl".  She wanted us to use 12 or more buttons.  If you need challenge inspiration to get some of your photo's scrapped ... then you can check out my Scrapbook Challenge Blog List HERE.

Beautiful layouts, Melisa. I especially love the first one. I love hearing about a couple staying together for so long! Unusual nowadays. Such a blessing! And I do love that verse. One of the first verses my little one memorized.
