Our Love

While channeling my mojo, I came across this pic of Joe & I and decided to scrap it.  The pic is from a Disney trip back in was time.

I quickly decided to make things easier and used a Bella Blvd Project Sheet for the basic design.  The "Kiss Me" collection seemed perfect for this pic. 

Printing the journaling on this made me nervous.  I didn't want to hand write it in case of messing it up but I worried if my printer would eat it if I ran it through.  I printed off a ton of "test runs" to line it up perfectly.  Finally, I chanced it, held my breath and went for it. I like how it came out!  I used the "Billabong" font which is the same font as "Instagram" and might be one of my new favorite fonts.

Since I couldn't leave well enough alone, I used Stickles on a few hearts along the bottom paper, just randomly spread out.

I had a lot of fun making this and it came together so quickly which made me even happier.  I may have even broken through my "it's too pretty to use" problem with paper.  I have a ton of supplies that I really need to use more of instead of saving.  I bought it for a reason and if I don't use it I can't appreciate it, right?  So I'm going to go for it more instead of waiting for "the right" reason whatever it may be.  No more hoarding!!

Very pretty! I love that alphabet for your title, and that font! I need to check that one out.
Glad your printed journaling worked out. I have definitely ruined items I wanted to print on trying to run them through the printer!
