You & Me

Hello all,  I'm thrilled to be back again with a layout for the sweet sassy diva design team. This week my challenge was to work with the Graphically Speaking cart. I love this cartridge and have used it a lot for my sons photos. It has some great phrases and cuts for teenage boys! I decided to challenge myself and use it for something other than guy stuff and I'm so happy with what I came up with. I bet most would never guess I used GS for this layout at first glance. 

These photos were taken at our church on Valentines Day weekend by friends. We had a fabulous service about marriage and then everyone renewed their wedding vows and had wedding cake after the service. It was such a great time.
I have to tell you about the huge cakes in the background as well. I've donated a cricut to our church's decorating department and all the flowers on the cake was made with it. Remember you can always click on the photos to enlarge them and get a better look. I think they did a fabulous job with their cricut and the George cart!!
A close up of the title. Together did not have a shadow but I needed it to pop off the page so I glued it to a piece of cardstock and then just trimmed around it real quick. I also pop dotted it off the page.
 The border is made from 2 1/2" squares of patterned paper matted with cardstock. I had these fabulous embellishments in my stash that I used to add some bling to the page.
I added yellow rhinestones to the antenna to help make the butterfly pop and pop dotted it off the page. I also added a tiny pink heart to the end of the swirl.
This is the first time I can remember that I did not pen and ink up my cuts but I think it works for this layout.

The sizes of all the cuts are as follows.
me & you - 2"
Together - 3/4"
flower border - pg. 33   1 3/4"
butterfly - pg. 57    2 3/4"

I hope you enjoyed my layout today and stop by my blog to see more wonderful projects.
