Beautiful love story - Celebr8

Hallo there, I hope you are doing well.

I have another page to share with you today.  I used a selfie we took while we were on the KZN south coast.
Supply list:  Patterned papers:  Celebr8 Chit Chat; Cardstock: American Craft; Letter Stickers: Basic Grey; Tim Holtz small talk; Wood veneer; Jillibean Soup; Chipboard: Celebr8; Flair: Hip Kit Exclusive; Embroidery Floss; DMC; Other: Distress Markers, Stickles; Punch: EK Success; Die cut: The Cut Shoppe; Silhouette Cameo.

Some close ups:

  I don't often get the chance to use a "selfie" the flair had to be used.  I coloured and then added stickles to my chipboard.

 I cut the butterflies on the background with the Silhouette Cameo and then backed it with a bright coloured patterned paper...and I stitched.

 The flowers were all fussy cut from the patterned papers.

 I continued with the stickles on the title chipboard and then decided to add the "love story" below...after all we have been married for 37 years.

 Some wood veneer hearts that was left over of my one Hip Kit club.

Thank you for visiting my blog today ♥♥
