Another One...?!

Ok---last one---I promise! It's all Roxy's fault for getting me hooked from her post! I've lost count of how many of these I've made---but our first wedding anniversary is tomorrow and I wanted to make something special for my husband. This is what I came up with. The brads and knotted twine give it some embellishment without being "too girly"! While we didn't chance the weather and have a beach wedding, our fabulous photographer Joel Riebert (Hi Joel!) graciously followed us and our family to the beach to get photos there as well. It was a very small but very meaningful service & ceremony...the focus was really on what we were promising one another before God. Brook cried when I first read him the words to God Bless the Broken Road (and that was the same evening we picked out our wedding rings)--so that was/is "our song".
Ok--enough sentimental journey-ing or I'll have you here all day! I used the Stampin' Up Top Note die I got from my favorite SU Demonstrator (who was also my matron of honor and photographer as well...) Theresa...
I cut out the die note in the blue green paper, then laid it over the white and cut to form the background. Then, using the SU what I call "slitty punch", I lined it up with the 4 curves and punched slits that work as photo corners! I added the brads to give it some zing. I like the look, it's super simple, and I foresee some photo books coming out of this trick. In case you're wondering...I did not use any CTMH products...I really didn't do any stamping-other than the envelope. But if you are interested in the Stampin' Up products (and I have used both the die and the punch A LOT!) please contact Theresa.
That's it for today. Our youngest son is here to visit so a long boat ride and picnic dinner is in the works. Tomorrow my husband gives the message at our 8:15 church service and I am sure the rest of the day will be spent much like this one!
Until next time, happy stamping and scrapping!
Blessings, Sharon
