Okay, so I really wanted to use some "real" lacy card stock that is the challenge for this week at Practical Scrappers. I had a sheet of semi-lacy card stock and I used it for this layout. But, I kept seeing all of these fantastic pages done with the real lacy kind and I just had to try it, too. lol I know, I know......I'm making excuses. I just needed an excuse to go out and buy some, because I didn't have any! lol
So, here's my layout using some lacy card stock. I didn't use as much of it as I originally thought that I would, but I stumbled upon this transparency sheet, because I still had them sitting out from doing an older challenge at Practical Scrappers to use transparencies. I really thought that it went great with this photo that I had of me and Joe holding hands while driving to church one Sunday morning.
The transparency says:
Without you I'd be lost
a ship without a sail
a nest without an egg
a tree without a root
a home without a heart
A soul without a mate.
I cut one strip from the lace card stock and put that underneath the photo and transparency across the bottom. I wanted to do something more and then it hit me that highlighting the words "soul" and "mate" would look really neat. So, I took some pink acrylic paint and brushed it across the back of the transparency. I really love how that turned out!
The heart is corrugated and I added all sorts of things to it. The light pink hearts were cut from the lace card stock. I wrapped it with some ribbon and I added a couple of plastic tags tied with ribbon, punched red hearts, a rhinestone and then letter stickers for our initials.
The next piece of lace card stock that I have is snowflakes and I can't wait to work on that one next! Hopefully this evening during nap time!
