The bottom left picture is my Mom and Dad kissing 12/25/92. My Dad bought my Mom a ruby ring for their 40th. It is the ONE and ONLY piece of jewelry my Dad EVER bought my Mother. I turned it black and white which I thought I did for the flow of the pages, but in hind sight, I wish I would have left it alone. Oh well.
Here are some close-ups of the page
First, I just got an EK dimensional flower punch "Dahlia" and I had to play with it. I gotta say, it is cool! Esp using the gold metallic cardstock! I put a little piece of the lace in the middle, just for funs.
Here is a closer pic of the lacing I did. Used eyelets from my stash and green and gold DMC embroidery floss. I also used the gold floss for the french knot centers of the smaller flowers. NOTE: it really sucks trying to make a french knot with the metallic floss!!! The buttons are also stash from stuff I got from Granny's house. The smaller flowers were made for my MS punch.
All the papers I used are from The Paper Studio's Bella Bohemia stack.
It wasn't the easiest thing in the world doing this page, but I really am glad I got it done before Christmas. In my heart, it will be their 59th Anniversary. <3
