He's still "The One"..

Is it Thursday already?  I can't tell after the crazy bank holidays we've had recently.  We had a very busy weekend with the Royal Wedding and another fabulous rugby match to go to.  I love my children to bits but I do love to spend a little time now and again with just Management.  We've been together nearly 19 years and he is my world.  When we got married, our first dance was to Shania Twain's "You're still the one" as it was just perfect for us.  People didn't think we would last and we took a lot of criticism from all sides about moving in together so quickly (about 2-3 months!), me being a mere 18 at the time, different backgrounds, etc.  Every time I hear that song, with all we have gone through, it becomes more and more relevant and it makes me get all misty eyed just thinking about it.

A photo of my wonderful husband is quite rare so I wanted to do justice to these 2 shots taken last year in Wales.  I used mostly new supplies but I wish I had waited for the other papers in the Circa 1934 range by Cosmo Cricket as it didn't gel as well as I hoped without them.  I used the borders page to choose my colours but ended up not using any of the pieces that showed all the colours anyway!

I chose the script paper to show his intelligence which I greatly admire, and the little mathematical symbol on the right is a chance occurrence that aptly nods to his job.  He is a fan of ginger beer, pretty much the closest he gets to anything alcoholic these days, so that was a good choice of card.  The little gecko is a reminder of our travels and a symbol I try to find on things for him.  We know our car in the car parks as we have a gecko in the front window :-)

For this layout I used another of Shimelle's Sketch of the Week ideas but I ended up with more of a pyramid as I didn't keep to the left enough.  Hopefully you can't see the couple of errors I made though.

And here is a little sneak of that layout that my son thought was messy....

I'll show it in full tomorrow.  Till then, happy crafting.

Bye for now xx
