He is my husband, my partner, my lover, the father of my children, my childhood sweetheart, and most of all he is MY BEST FRIEND.
I have known him and loved him for more than 1/2 of my life. He is the one I can turn to, who will always listen, and give support whenever needed. Plus - we have fun together!
So - when I saw a design challenge for the Design Dollies Blog this month "This week's challenge is in honor of Friendship Day, which was August 1st! (Who would've thunk?). Create a project honoring a close friend!" - I knew who would be my subject.
Check out their COOL Blog! Lots of GREAT TALENT:
This photo was taken when we took a "Cruise to Nowhere" out of NYC, back in Oct of 2006, for our 24th Wedding Anniversary. Phil truly is...
I had fun doing all kinds of "stuff" to this layout. I made the frame using a Fiskar's edge punch. I made the flower using a heart punch and a circle punch. I made a folded pleat on the bottom left. Tearing, rolling inking, and of course masking and Glimmer Misting!
The paper is "foof-a-la Red, Black, Cream" that I got from my favorite scrapbook store, Scrap-a-Doodle-Doo in Ramsey, NJ. The lace is antique lace that I bought at a weekend we went away down the shore earlier this year. I added buttons, brads, and the letters were left overs that were a bright shiny silver - so I roughed them up with a sanding tool, and inked them with black Versamark - then added a little silver SMOOCH paint too! Oh - the black card to the right of the photo is the cardboard that Prima flowers come on - I liked the shape - so I sprayed it with a little Glimmery "Elixir of Life" and gave it a new life on my layout! =D
Here is a close up of the card.
Here is a close up of the lace. See the little piece that I turned red with Red Velvet Glimmer Mist!
Just YUMMY! Oh- and here you can see the pleating and some silver shimmer in the left corner too!
Well - I hope you enjoy looking at this layout as much as I had fun making it!
Thanks for looking,
