One Year On

It's St Valentine's Day, and Shimelle has challenged us to scrapbook with hearts this week, so I have a page with a rare photo of my husband and me together. It's an old photo and the title reflects the fact that we'd been married for a year. However it's not an anniversary photo, but one from some friends' wedding a few weeks later.

Unusually, I picked my background first, followed by a Project Life card to go next to my photo and hold my heart embellishment, then a few papers to go with them.

I shuffled papers for a while, before I decided to adapt a sketch from Stuck?! Sketches. It's a three-photo sketch and I only have one, but the circles were just what I needed to break up the boxiness of the layouts that I'd tried and rejected.

My background paper came from a Quirky Kit last autumn, and the text print heart was an exclusive piece in the same kit. The chalkboard heart was another Quirky Kit item, but from summer 2014. I had three left from the pack and had I intended to use them all when I started the page but it didn't work out.
