As you can see there is a sketch to use as inspiration from the lovely Emma Stafrace. You can find more of her lovely sketches here at Page Drafts.
Here is the sketch.
Here is my layout.
I cut the edge of the paper off before I wrote down whose it was :P Now I can't remember but it was double sided and perfect for the colours this week so I cut it in half and then taped it back together again and mounted it onto black cardstock. I chose to do some mock stitching all around the layout this week. The red and grey flower was cut from a piece of paper in my scrap box.
The heart balloons are chippies that I covered with the dotty paper. I used some gesso and used some of my new Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals... Oh I love those things :D
I wrote the quote by hand... I really DON'T like to see my writing on layouts I always think it spoils them. O layered up some of the papers with a banner, a strip and a punched border. The chippie title was just painted red and left.
The banner was attached to some twine and tucked in. The flowers were added and lastly the bling. An engaged girl has to have some bling. :)
Thanks for stopping by to take a look and for leaving me a comment. I really appreciate it.
Till next time.
