M - Mr. & Mrs.

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter M. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as her M element will be featured in her post.
If you came from Linda at Scrappy Therapy then you're on the right track!

Thank You for visiting my blog today. It looks like we're at the half way point in the ABC Blog Hop. I hope you've seen A-L!! It's been so fun to see what everyone chooses to represent each letter. I love a little something with guidelines BUT not strict rules!! I have had a lot of M ideas and here's where I landed ... "Mr. & Mrs.".  Isn't this title cut from the Cricut Artiste cartridge adorable? 

The Mission Possible kit for August is just a few days away from being revealed. For Always is the last paper pack I'll be working with from the existing Close To My Heart Idea Book. BECAUSE ... drum roll please ... on August 1st a brand new Fall/Winter Idea Book hits the streets. It would be an understatement to say that I'm over the top excited!!! To say more would take me down a long rabbit trail. 
So, back to the Mr. & Mrs. ...
The paper here is mostly card stock. The mat for the photo is made with the For Always paper. This paper is so beautifully elegant that I had to do a little something wedding. It's simple. They say less is more and sometimes I agree. I thought there would be clusters of everything on this page when I was dreaming it up in my mind. But photos should always be the highlight of any scrapbook layout. AND I wanted to keep things flexible for those who will be creating this layout with me in August.

Here's the whole layout. Even though there's a single photo page, the other half leaves lots of room for additional photos of various shapes and sizes. Remember guidelines and not too many rules!!! Here's what it looks like all together.

I plan to put photos of my darling husband and I over the years on the right hand page. The strip across the bottom says "Everyone says you only fall in love once, but that's not true, because every time I see you, I fall in love all over again." All together now, awwwwwwwwwwwwe. What a fun way to celebrate your marriage relationship!

It's tough to capture the beauty of glitter and bling in a photograph. Here's my attempt at showing you that glimmer trim and sparkles are the anchor to the right hand page. It's so much better in real life. Once I add the photos there will probably be sparkles all over the page.

Do you love this as much as I do? Come back next week to see the Mission Possible scrapbook layout kit I'm in the process of making. There will be two layouts in the kit. The other one will have a pop of color. I'm thinking PINK!!
