Once upon a time

Sorry I haven't posted in awhile. I've had a lot going on, and have been working on things that I can't post yet. But I just finished this wedding page I did of me and my husband from 11 1/2 years ago. Our love has only gotten stronger since then and I'm so happy to have him in my life!
This was based on this month's sketch at Once upon a sketch, with love for the theme.

For the journaling I used the front of a wedding card that we received from my parents, and cut it into strips.

I also saved the silk flowers which I used here from our wedding day. I made the bling flourishes using liquid pearls (baby blue).

This is my example for the sewing challenge that I host at Scrapbook.com with the XOXO twist to stitch a circle and X's.  I hand-stitched the circle with black embroidery thread, and a baby blue for my X's. I'm also entering this into the Four Categories Challenge at Scrapbook.com for category 2 to use black and white with one other color, and the twist to use flowers. Thanks for looking!!
