Earlier this week, I made a card for a pair of newlyweds. Today, I thought I'd celebrate an anniversary, and one in particular. My son's great-grandparents will have been married for more than 60 years this month, which is a wonderful love story in it of itself. I can only hope that my own marriage will last as long and with as much love and respect as theirs.
To get me started, I used this week's terrific sketch from the Pals Paper Arts Challenge. I also thought this would be the perfect chance to play with my new Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients. The papers are so pretty and I thought I'd let them do the work for me today in wishing Rachel and John a very happy anniversary, forever and always!
