Love Birds

I found this new blog called Sketches in Thyme that had a really great sketch and I got a great idea for what to use it for - the pictures my hubby and I took during our anniversary a couple weeks ago.  Now I don't usually use sketches.  I have tons of them saved on my computer, but for some reason, everytime I start a new layout, I create one from scratch.

So here is the sketch for their Challenge #9.
I was super excited to actually find a use for a sketch so quickly!  I also remembered a ton of paper I had bought back during Valentines from BoBunny which I never really used from there Love Bandit line, so it worked perfectly for the theme and coloring of these pictures.

For my layout, I changed it up a bit, instead of a circle, I used a heart on its side (from create a critter), because it worked much better with the topic of my page.

The title is from Cherry Limeade (which I've had for a couple weeks, but wasn't sure if I was going to keep it.  Today it made its debut out of the box, LOL!).  The other embellishments are cut out from the  same paper line.
I wanted to put the occassion somewhere so I created a little heart embellishment to show its our 7th wedding anniversary.

I'm going to journal a lot for this, so I haven't decided if I'm going to tuck it behind the page (I left a space at the top between the red and scalloped papers in case I decide to do this) or create a double page layout and use the other side just for journaling.  But I can do that later - right now, the memories and pictures are preserved and I love the way it all turned out...thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to leave a comment, I love reading them!
