The love of my life!

Fifteen years in September- where did the time go? Seems like yesterday we were dating, then living in 4 different states (moved 4 times in 6 years!) and having children, to today. We have so many memories and I love to look back on our life. It is not often that I make it into the photos as I am usually on the other side! My MIL actually took this shot, I cropped it to focus on us (not her kitchen) and just wanted to make a simple layout. I had a terrible time of finding paper to work with this, so I made my own. I did lots of stamping in this one- paisleys on the grey flannel, the hearts for the letter V, sentiments and faux stitching. But I am thrilled with how this turned out and by making my own, I was able to really pull in the colors of his sweater and my sweater. Sometimes, just a little extra work can reward your efforts. I am counting on us being Always and Forever.....

I love to surf all the blogs out here as there is so much gorgeous artwork to see from so many talented people. Glad I found yours (might have to go hide mine).
