Together Forever

I used the above sketch from Let's Get Sketchy to make the following layout.

The paper is Pink Paislee Pen Pals 12 x 12 Paper Pad as is the arrows and hearts strips. The rose circle is from Colorbok Designer Paper Holiday Extravaganza 12 x 12 pad.The black strips- joy/change definitons is from DCWV Scrapbook Kit in a Stack Love & Wedding 8 x 8 pad as is the vellum title- Together Forever & the quote- "Love is the golden thread that ties our hearts and souls together." [Mother Teresa], and the white paper behind the vellum. I traced a salad plate to make a perfect circle and then used scallop edged decorative scissors to cut it out. The rose potted plant is from K&Company Eco-Modern Die-Cut Cardstock kit of 150 pieces. I printed the journaling out on my computer using Microsoft Word in Lucida Calligraphy font- My grandparents, Carrol and Grace Rhodes, at a Sweetheart Banquet at Plymouth Church of Christ in the early 80s. TFL, 

I made another layout today following a Unity sketch so please look at that post as well! I also altered a cookie tin for an Altered Challenge on Facebook and will be posting that later this week. I also have to post my 100+ Followers Giveaway Winner- I'm still looking in my stash for a few things that I haven't used to giveaway. I know I'm slacking on my blog so bear with me! :)
