"Love" by Anthea

Hi all. 
I hope you are all well today.  Today my husband and I are celebrating our wedding anniversary.  22 years we have been married (and put up with each other) so I thought what better way to honour him than by doing a LO of us!
All I knew when I started this is that I wanted the page to have lots of hearts and I think I have managed to achieve that much.  I had just received that gorgeous yellow flower and the top pink flower as part of a delivery in the mail and I knew that this was going to be my colour scheme.

I firstly set out by grabbing my trusty old heart punch and started punching, (my darling daughter helped with a few too).  I then started laying them and sticking them to the page - I was about a quarter of the way through when I realised just how much of an insane idea this all was and thanking God that I didn't use the smaller heart punch I had, as originally planned.  I was however determined not to give up and I finally got there.  (I do warn you - if you try something like this - you need a good couple of hours up your sleeve.)
The rest was easy.  I simply matted my photo with some white card stock and began laying out flowers - lots of flowers.  I started by picking the three big flowers in the LO. These three I have used are a yellow rustic bloom, a cherry blossom (from the last JAP kit), and a pale pink Chinese peony.  I then used almost an entire packet of Little birdie flowers and spread them across my page.
Lots of pictures I know, but I wanted you to see close up just how beautiful these flowers really are and just how much detail is in them!!!

Next I simply placed a D-lish flair and tassel in the corner and scattered a few more little birdie flowers here and there. (The flair and tassel I used came from a previous D-lish JAP kit, but there are lots more to choose from in the shop).
I finished the whole layout with a simple chipboard title inked in a colour to suit.  There are tons of chipboard pieces in store which can either be decorated to suit or left raw. 
Thanks again for looking - I hope I have inspired you to try something new. 
Till next time - take care.
