Love is in the Air - CY #3

When I saw Lynn, from Challenge YOUrself, post this challenge, I immediately thought of my husband...well, it is February and Valentine's Day is right around the corner.

1.  We have to use the following color combo
2.  Create a LO about someone you love
3.  Include yourself in the photo

I then thought about what picture I wanted to use and I knew that this was the one.  It is from 10 years ago, but it is still my favorite picture of us of all time.  We were on vacation in Cabo San Lucas and as you can see on my husbands face, we were having a ball! It was one of the best vacations we've ever taken.

I knew that I wanted to give it a romantic feel, so I started with stamping the background with this stamp from Tim Holtz (script writing).  I can't read a word of it, but it sure looks beautiful.

Recently, I've made a switch in inks and I'm falling in love with all my stamps again (and I have a lot).

I also wanted to add a little whimsical feeling, so I kind of stitched all over and used multiple fonts for the title.

And then, to glam it up a bit, I added the lace, and sparkly hearts.

Voila!  It was complete!

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I'd love to hear some of your thoughts on the LO.


  1. So beautiful, absolutely fantastic <3

  2. Lisa, this is probably one of my most favorite layout you've done!!! It is beautiful, from top to bottom! That photo of you guys is the best!!! So glad you are part of the team :)
