Happy Together

Here is another layout featuring my daughter and her husband.  They took a selfie in September 2015 at the Mötley Crüe/Alice Cooper concert : )  Every time I look at photos of Brianne and John, I always think to myself how very happy they look together...

I'm a 'purpleholic' so this GORGEOUS Blue Fern Studios "Timeless" paper collection with its plum tones really grabs me!

I used one of the 'Calling Cards' from the collection to mount the photo.  The very bottom layer is from the backside of the Calling Cards page.  I love the rich brown-plum!

I incorporated some bronze colored metal pieces into the design, along with beautiful flowers : )

I stamped on both sides of the photo with the Blue Fern Studios "Essential Textures" brick wall.  I chose to heat emboss with Blue Fern Studios Imagine Ink "Oatmeal" for a subtle look.  I LOVE it, LOVE it, LOVE it!

Want2Scrap chipboard words were used for the title and inked in a beautiful Raisin colored pigment ink. 

The late 60's song by the Turtles "Happy Together", with all of its lyrics and music, would not quit playing in my head so I had to play it from YouTube! LOL   I love this happy song.  So, I included some of the lyrics on the layout!  I chose these words from the song because they are so fitting of Brianne and John.

The printing on this paper is so stunning that it well deserves to be part of the whole design, which is why I decided to not punch or distress the edges.  The edges of the layout are framed with printed white lace, so I simply added bronze colored metal filigree corner pieces as accents.  

Oh how wonderfully FUN it was creating this layout! 
Thank you so much for stopping by to take a look! 
Have a wonderful weekend!  Lisa : )
