Happy Anniversary JAG!

If you are looking for my TLT Blog Hop; please click HERE.

Today we celebrate 19 years of marriage - man, I am SO very blessed!

I used Verve Visual's "Get Your Diva On" challenge for my inspiration; those flowers, that heart (cuz you KNOW he has my heart), just lots of fun, fun stuff going on here!  Then I used week 3 of their February Viva La Verve challenge for the layout.

On one acrylic block, I laid out all these sentiments from Verve Visual's Love Notes and then a little heart at the bottom; all the sentiments had special meaning to me when I think of my hubby; I then used the Spiral Notebook Die from PTI and stamped the entire block of sentiments onto the die a couple of times.  LOVE the look.  I curled the top of the notebook die and the bottom right-hand corner and edged it in Chamomile Tea Dye Ink.

Of course I HAD to add a heart doily; the 3 flowers were made with MFT Stamps floral dies and used in place of the envelope on the sketch; I also added chocolate pearls to the center of each flower.  Did another scrunchy ribbon using PTI's sweet blush ribbon.

The heart was cut with Verve Visual's Jotted Heart Die, then I stamped the heart in 2nd generation Memento Rich Cocoa and added the sentiment in Pink Pastel Chalk.  I colored in the heart with Copics and then edged the heart and the entire sentiment with a Clear Spica Glitter pen.

Hopefully you can see some of the details in these shots; I just love how it turned out.  Yeah, it might be a little feminine BUT I know he will love it...cuz he loves me.

I am blessed, so very blessed!  I love you JAG!

Have a great week; hugs, ~M.
