The journaling reads:
"I've always loved sitting out on the rock jetty at Morro Bay, with the sea stretched as far as the eye could see...listening to the waves crash against the rocks & feeling the ocean spray...
Secretly, I fantasized about being proposed to at this very spot...ideally it would be as the sun was sinking low on the horizon, with my groom-to-be on one knee, presenting me with a beautiful diamond ring.
Little did I know that, less than 4 years later, a boy named Scott would make this romantic dream of mine come true!!"
This is my submission for the challenge over at Whimsical Scraps and Bugs. We had a color palette to work with, and we were encouraged to use our Cuttlebug along with our Cricuts, of course. I based the design off a sketch from PageMaps. You can find it in the February 2009 archives here--you'll have to scroll down a few to find it.
I used Thickers for the title, Plantin Schoolbook for the hearts and the bracket, Swiss Dots and Perfectly Paisley embossing folders, and some buttons along the bottom of the journaling. The faux stitching is done using a stamp from Studio G and lightly tracing it with brown and red pens. The subtitle on the heart was made using rub-ons from Autumn Leaves. The paper is from the DCWV summer stack.
Thanks for looking!
