For my project today I used the darling stamp set: Beautiful You from Verve stamps to create a little scrapbook page. The sister of my dear dear friend is celebrating her 25th Wedding Anniversary and so we wanted to create a page with pictures of her sister on her wedding day as well as a pic of them now - as a couple and as a family. What an inspiration it is to be be married for so long and with so much love for each other! I created a layout that was mostly grays and creams and had a little pop of blue. This stamp set has so many absolutely lovely verses - so inspiring and beautiful - and I especially loved the one: "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our create away." Here is a picture of the whole page - I later framed it into a large white Shadowbox (it was a hard to take a picture of the framed layout because of the reflection of the glass - but here is the whole layout unframed:
I used some silver trims and some silver bling brads which coordinated perfectly with the beautiful flower stamp that this stamp set has - such a gorgeous flower - I stamped the flower twice - once in cream and then once in gray and then popped the smaller flower onto the larger flower. The smaller one's petals are colored with copics and then I added a little stickle to them for an etra level of sparkle - here is a closer look at the sentiment and the flower stamp:
And here is the picture of them when they were first married - I added a little metallic brad to the corner:\
And a picture of them now - after 25 years:
I love their expressions in this picture - so sweet!
