Time to show off with my challenges layouts!
The first challenge was to scrap a layout about a special person in my life and of course say why he or she is important. There are four or five important and special people in my life, but this time I chose to do a page with and about my husband. Of course there had to be a picture and some journaling, but the idea was to use the things we learnt during the workshops, so I ended up with my first double page layout. I used the Summer Getaway kit from Scrapable to create the layout and I am happy with the results. I find it challenging to create pages where my husband is alone in the picture or pictures. I don't want to make it girly looking or too crowded, but I found all the elements I needed in this kit and this is the result:
The journaling says:
We met in 2003 and although it was not love at first sight, we fell in love in a very short period of time and after I got to know you I knew I wanted you to be the father of my children and the man I want to grow old with. We’ve been through ups and downs and stood against people who did not want to see us together. We did a lot of things to be where we are today. I moved to the other side of the world just to be with you and I do not regret it for a second.
We are not in the same place all the time and every time you leave home you take a piece of me with you. We are both working for our children and our future and it is unfair to be far from each other for so long, but we both know that in the end we have each other and three wonderful children and a place we call our home. I love you like I never thought I could love anyone and I promise you I will do anything in my power not to hurt you or make you sad. You are my best friend,my lover and my husband and I want to spend forever with you.
