Joy on this day

This weekend, I played along with fellow DT gal, Patricia, in her blind scraplift. Essentially you are scraplifting or CASE-ing a layout that you've never seen. She listed materials needed and then instructions on how to put the page together. Let me tell you, THIS was a challenge. I know I did not get all of the page put together perfectly, but I am thrilled with how it came out.

Not usually a color combo I use, but I pulled some of the colors from my bouquet for my paper choices. The panel on the right side was stamped with Damask Designs in SU! So Saffron Ink. I made the puffy flowers using a tutorial I've used a few times by Dawn McVey, except this time I left the buttons out of the center & just kept them puffy! I added faux stitching on the right side of the page by paper piercing and then drawing X's with a black marker.
On July 2nd, my hubby & I will be celebrating our 10th anniversary. I loved creating this page and taking a trip down memory lane.
