Love Notes with Graphic 45 and 7 Kids Crafts

Today I am back with another fun project with 7 Kids Crafts.   A while back I picked up the Love Notes 12 x 12 Collection (I believe is out of stock in her shop currently) because I love everything Graphic 45 but did not have much of an idea on what I wanted to create.

A few posts back you will see a card I made featuring this paper, but today I share my favorite creation.

My husband and I are going on 10 years married and I have to admit I have slacked on scrapbooking the photos- scrapbooking any photos to be fair.  

I was looking at this paper and it dawned on me I had the perfect wedding photo.   This is one of my favorite photos for several reasons.   We were married in Vegas, with 50 family and friends joining us.     Me trying to save money opted for the “canned” music.   The day of the wedding they told us the couple before us had opted for the live piano player so he was there, and if we wanted him to play we just needed to pay him direct.     I was a nervous wreck as was and deferred to my husband to be.    He told my maid of honor it was my day and it was my decision.    We ended up with the live music- so this piano and the fact that my husband wanted the day perfect for me has my heart.

Now back to my creation.    I used some cardstock from my stash and a some red crystals I had.    I also used a resin charm I had in my stash to add the finishing touches.   I inked my pattern paper with Tim Holtz distress ink in black soot.

It’s a very simple (in my eyes) layout but one that will probably go in a shadow box as a great memory of that day!
