Here's a special layout I made for my girlfriend Kathy and her DH, Charlie for their 27th Wedding Anniversary coming up this Valentine's Day. I put it into a shadow box and included a few special items that Kathy has given me over the years.
One of our favorite past times is having a nice leisurely lunch then heading out for an afternoon of treasure hunting in the local second hand stores around Old Town Temecula. Over the years Kathy has blessed me with many treasures and I've added a few of them to this layout. The cream lace cameo and gold heart buttons were both gifts from her so I couldn't resist including them on her special Valentines Day Wedding Gift.
As usual, my techniques are fairly simple. I embossed the filigree heart and key, did a bit of machine sewing and added some handmade flowers. I also used a Krylon pen to add some gold edging and did a bit of black distressing to separate and highlight the layers.
Thanks for dropping by and if you have a minute, I especially appreciate your kind comments. Have a happy day friends! Hugs ~ Dawna
