Story of our engagement - Scrap FX

Sweet Sunday! My two layouts with the new Scrap FX goodies are now published in the company blog (link) and I'll share them with you here in my own blog as well. As I said, I used the party themed new chippies in these, but like always, mixed in some older products as well. The other page is romantic and pink and the other one more modern and blue. So let's get started! 

The first page you can see on top there. It's made about how my husband and I got engaged. We had been together for years and I kind of knew he was going to ask me to marry him. One day we drove to my parent's summer house and without me knowing it, he had then asked my father's permission to marry me - yes, my love is old fashioned in that way.

On the way back home we didn't drive the usual route but instead drove along the coast line. He remembered that I had said that I'd love to be proposed near the sea. Because it was autumn the weather was not on his side - it was dark and rain poured down from the sky. So instead driving to the sea shore, he asked me to marry in the car as the weather was so terrible. The ring was in the glove compartment. 

As we've been soon even married ten years (well, year and a couple moths to go), it was about time I finally wrote that memory down! I used pink and flowery papers in the page and treated all of the chipboards with golden embossing powder. I even created a golden swirl to the background using the "Damask"stencil and gold crackle paste. I also added so pink mist through the "Botanical" stencil, but that's not that visible in the finished layout.

The main embellishments in the page are the two flourishes - the "Doodad J Tails" one vertically and the "Flourish 19 Wing" one horizontally. Near these two there's also two horseshoes from the "Mini Horseshoes" set. Part of the title is also done with a chipboard, the "Engagement Mini". And to finish the lovely feeling there's a heart from the "Lots of Love" set and the word "Love" cut from the "Vocational" transparency. The little circles around the page are drawn using the "Random Dots" stencil.

Thank you for your visit today and please return tomorrow for the second page! Wishing you a pleasant start to the new week!
