The pretty florals, plaids and hugs/kisses pattern papers from Doodlebug's So Punny collection work wonderfully with the black and white photo of my parent's wedding day.
My mother had a successful career as a textile pattern maker so I thought the sewing references would be cute on the layout. On the right side of the page I wanted to include a subtle layer of texture and added a strip of fringed card stock in the same colour as the base. Kinda cool how the ends curl up a bit on their own.
To the left of the photo I cut out the Chinese symbol for 'love' using my digital cutter. I cut out the character 3x from patterned paper and layered them all to achieve the thickness of thin chipboard.
The patterned heart shape glossy sprinkles are absolutely adorable and I used them throughout the page on scalloped circles punched from the the hearts 6x6 papers. Hope this inspires you to create a love-themed layout. Have a wonderful day!
