I don’t know how Jill Sarginson manages to come up with a fantastic sketch every month for the Canadian Scrapbooker magazine Sketchy Challenge….but she does!  This month’s design is so sweet and romantic….

….so I had to follow suit with a layout of the Hubby and moi….

Who does romance better than Prima and Webster’s Pages?

Not too  many of these couple pics floating around!  DramaQueen shot this on the day of our 22nd Anniversary last August.  It’s probably one of the few anniversaries that I have a photo of us (GASP!)

My original title was “True Love after 22 years” and when I showed Hubby the layout, he said, “What?? It took you 22 years to love me?!?!?”  lol.  So I added “still” in front of “true love” (thank heavens for alpha stickers!)

Here are some close ups….

The Harmonie laser cut chipboard flower on right is painted black with Distress Stain.

All of the  little green scalloped embossed hearts are made from a Stampin Up Sizzix die.

Here’s a vellum quotation from Quick Quotes.The embossed leaves are another Sizzix die.
All of the butterflies and flowers are Prima. Prima makes romance EASY.

I really like this fun pic of hubby and I because it shows how we share lots of laughter….which is why our relationship works.

Well, maybe it also works because he thinks my scrapbooking is pretty cool. ha ha!

DramaQueen told him that at school last week, they had to list things they are confident about…..and she told the teacher she was confident that her parents would never get a divorce.

I think that’s pretty cool too 🙂

    This is totally awesome and DQ took a fabulous pic! Isn’t great to be able to bounce a title off of hubby & he comes up with a better (well, we let them think it’s a better one) one! Awesome sketch – you rocked it Kelly!

    Nice to see Hubbies once in a while! I love the way you used the vellum with the flowers and leaves. Thanks for the close up photos, it makes such a difference.

    Isn’t that funny how the longer you’ve been together with someone, the less photos there are of just you two?! Well this page is so pretty, bright, cute, I do love it! Love the 3 different bunches of coolness you’ve got going to decorate that fab framed photo 😀
