THERE ARE TWO PRIZES so be sure to leave me a comment here at the end of this post! 
It's my 14th wedding anniversary and I found this photo of my hubby and I from a family wedding many years ago.  We were expecting our second child at that point.  It was a great night!  So, I thought it would be fun to document it with lots of fun color.  Susan K Weckesser's Live in Color line is so vibrant and fun!  I knew I wanted to use the papers that looked painted on as accents.  So, I spray, brushed and splattered until my heart sang! 
 The Grandma's Needlepoint stamps were just darling!  The lines of stitched looking borders were perfect as accents here.  I usually love to sew on my pages but this allowed me to add some of that without dragging the sewing machine out.  I also used her Live in Color Stencil with some Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Whipped Spackle to create some texture accents.


 That chipboard feather from UmWowStudios is divine!  I adore the shape of it!  I used lots of different Glam on it (I had a ton in my stash and hardly ever drag it out but this was too tempting!). 

 Then, on the slightly stickier parts, I rubbed some gold leafing.  It stuck to the sticky parts and gave a bit of gold shine/ bling!

 This page is so fun and it was definitely my favorite kind of day... well, any day I create is my favorite kind of day!

I hope this isn't a duplicate. I thought I posted but it's not showing up.

I love that you can look back on old pictures and make a page using them. It's great to have memories that you can look back on and remember the good times you had.
Happy anniversary.
