Hello my friends... Happy Friday.
I'm so stressed... I have so much work at the office... and will be out of town in a business trip the whole next week... But you know what? I always say we humans need sweet and sour to be able to compare and appreciate... so, Thank God for scrapbooking that helps me calm down... :)
I made this layout a few days ago and was waiting to finish some details before posting, but the more I look at it, the more I think I'll leave as is...
The base paper has already a lot going on, but it is perfect for the topic because it has lots of romantic phrases and images. I made the layout for the current Unity Challenge with the theme of "I do"... I wanted to use the theme in a funny but serious way... I mean, when you look at the photo and the title, it's a joke because I used a photo of my dog and myself in bed, and the title is "I do"... LOL!
But let me get you through it and then to the more "serious" part.
First, note I used chipboard letters for the title, and below it I stamped a swirl.
I also stamped the same swirl in the opposite direction on top of the "I love you" message printed in French.
I used two stamps of hearts and heat embossed them, then cut and assembled together. One of the hearts is from a stamp that says "with much love and sympathy" and the other one "Home is where the heart is", but I used only the hearts.
I replicated one of the hearts and used for bottom part of page with washi tapes.
Finally, I stamped this shape in a line printed paper to make a journaling card, and cut. Then stamped the "you+me=happiness" sentiment on top.
That's seven Unity stamped images in a layout!
And this is the whole page.
Here's the serious part... I really meant "I do" with my dog. I used to be fear of dogs and at some point decided to change that. And long story short, my dog has been a blessing in my life. The journaling says: "Dear Malbec (my dog): You are very special. I thank God for the opportunity to feel your unconditional love. This is something every human deserves to live. I don't regret to have accepted the challenge to overcome my fear for dogs."
I hope you liked it...
