20 years....


that's how long I have been with my lovely hubby....and I count myself very lucky to have him in my life! So I thought I should do a layout ( especially as I did a 19 year one last year LOL) and this is what I came up with.




Of course I had to use my favourite colours, Teal and Lime, so I used a mix of papers, blossoms,bling and lush teal glitter thickers. I made the bow that goes across the layout out of some white nylon crochet ribbon which I dabbed with alcohol ink ( Stream) to make the colour tie in.



The large teal flower at the top was originally a pale cream, so I changed it with a promarker :), I also coloured some of the clear crystal swirl at the bottom left with promarkers too.



I made the spiral roses and used a couple of decorated pins that I had embellished months ago and had misplaced *tuts*, then just used a sprinkling of bling and teal coloured half pearls.



Its now sitting in a box frame in our lounge....and I LOVE it!
Thanks for looking....Warmest Wishes Anita..xxx
