Verve Divas Inspiration Hop - February 2013

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to our FebruaryDiva Inspirations Hop!  Today the Divas are dusting off some Verve favorites and putting on our monthly hop to inspire you with a fresh new spin on the stamps in our stash! So grab a drink and hop along as we share a little Verve with you! There's a great little prize involved, too! A random commenter on one of the hops will win a $30 gift certificate to VERVE, so be sure to leave a little love in the comment section as you hop about! You can find out all the prize details over on the Verve Blog today. 

 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!
