Lucky in Love

Hi everyone.  Today I have a quick layout to share with you.  The kids don't have school today as it is a local school holiday.  I created my layout using the oh-so-gorgeous Once Upon a Sketch sketch layout challenge where the journaling response was "Lucky".  That was a really easy prompt for me because there are so many things in my life that are a blessing to me. But today I decided to create a layout about my darling husband.

I had a lot of fun with the layout, spraying it with different sprays, inks and stencils around the edges.  The luminous paint are Iris Petal and Solar Gold Silks Acrylic Glaze.

I have a hard time journaling, so I added mine inside the large heart in the center of the layout.  

The beautiful cloud-like hearts and bottle with the word "love" on it are part of the Sheena Douglass Just the Two of Us stamp set which I stamped with Dusty Conord Distress ink.  Here's a closer look at them.  Aren't they so romantic?

 I worked on this layout for a couple of days, giving each layer time to dry.  I am really happy with how it turned out. And more importantly, so is the wonderful man featured in it :)

Thanks for stopping by and having a look.  I hope you enjoy the rest of your afternoon :)
