It was sixteen years ago today when I went on a blind date.
It was with a tall, dark and handsome man who wanted to live off the land when he finished his college career.
He was sweet, and I definitely thought he was "cute" as we used to say. But, he was "not my type". I distinctly remember telling that to my mom after an afternoon of golfing together.
Well, I started dating that guy. And I ended up marrying that guy. And soon we will celebrate our 13 year wedding anniversary. But today I remember the day I met my wonderful husband!
So it's a perfect day to feature my recent layout of the two of us. I used My Mind's Eye papers from their "Be Loved" line and the die cut accessories. I also used American Crafts cardstock and Thickers "Cupid" chipboard letters.... I love Thickers!
The title came from a song I heard on the radio while I was driving one day. I keep a notebook in my car to jot down anything that inspires me while I'm out and about. I forgot the artist of the "1 Word 2 Say" song... anyone else know who it is? (Kristi, I fully expect you to answer this for me! :)
The heart embellishement was really fun to make. I rarely create handmade ornate embellishments, but had this idea I wanted to try. I used white tissue paper and crayola watercolors to paint it. After it dried, I cut out several hearts of different sizes. I made different designs with Stickles glitter glue and after that dried, I stacked them all together. Remembering the beaded safety pins as a kid, I glammed up a safety pin and attached the hearts together with the pin. I can't wait to try this technique with a butterfly shape this spring!
