Love Everlasting – Let’s Capture These Sketches

Earlier in the summer a relative gave me this photo of Larry’s parents sitting together. It’s hard to find a photo with just the two of them since Bruce was so active in the community, did a lot of volunteer work and they had such a large extended family. When I saw sketch #96 for our dt work at Let’s Capture These Sketches, I knew this was the photo I wanted to use. Picking out the right product proved to be a bit harder. At the time, I had just finished a layout working with the Cosmo Cricket Fleuriste line and the colors seemed to work for this photo as well, but things were not clicking for me an I think it had a lot to do with not have the right embellishments to go with the papers for this page, so I switched gears and went with Prima’s fabulous Botanical Collection and things fell into place for me then.

I chose the title Love Everlasting for this piece because it’s just the two of them and I can’t help but think of love and devotion when I see it. Bruce passed away a year before Larry and I met, so it’s been over 8 years and Grace has never once taken off her wedding ring and has no intentions of doing so. For her, it’s not “’til death do us part”…it’s “until we meet again.” Here’s what I came up with:

Materials:

Prima Botanical Collection papers
Prima Botanical Collection stickers
Prima Botanical Collection diecut stickers
Prima trim
Prima flowers
Kaisercraft pearls
October Afternoon mini market alpha stickers
Pink Paislee Wood Shop Alphas
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists
Distress Ink

Adhesives:

Helmar 450 Quick Dry
Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots
Helmar Zap Dots
Helmar adhesive runner

Here’s the fab sketch #96 by Guest Sketch Designer, Sue Sykes:
