Our Romance - ScrapTown Lady BoBunny and Blue Fern Studios

Happy Friday my friends! I am so glad its finally the weekend. I thought it would never come.

This week I played with some gorgeous Bo Bunny Prairie Chic papers and Blue Fern Studios Chipboard from ScrapTown Lady. I've been wanting to scrap a wedding photo. This past July my hubby and I celebrated 30 years of marriage. Our romance started at a high school dance. It took him the whole night to work up the courage to ask me, lol. It wasn't until the very last dance ( a slow dance ) that he made his move, prompted by the fact that another guy was headed my way. I was 16. We've been together ever since.
My hubby had emergency surgery after injuring his arm Labor Day weekend. He ruptured his bicep trying not to fall off a ladder. It's been 2 weeks and he still has a lot of pain. I feel so bad for him. He is going bonkers not being able to work. It's a long slow recovery. Once healed, he will have to work to regain his strength in that arm. Dr's say 4-6 months before he is fully recovered. It was his right arm too. Now he is forced to do things with just his left hand.

This paper with its pinks and blues reminded me of our wedding colors. I love the garden feel to the layout, as if when you step through those doors in the photo, beautiful things awaited.

I painted the chipboard pieces with some crackle paint and then used my chalk ink pads to add shading. Crackle paint is my favorite way to finish chipboard. I love the texture.

The gorgeous Prima flowers are enhanced with a Cheery Lynn Flourish.
