Hey there! 🙂 It’s that time of the month again, when the Gossamer Blue Design Team has a whole lot of inspiration for you and for how you can use your Gossamer Blue January kits!
I have a layout for you today for which I mostly used the January Scrapbook Main kit and the Life Pages Themed Add-On, which was my absolute favourite Add-On maybe of all times! I mean, it’s full of Crate Paper “Hello Love” goodness, so how could you not like it?!
Anyway, the layout is about the (definitely) most special gift someone has ever given to me – my engagement ring. And what’s so special about it, is not only that it symbolises the bond between S. and me but everytime I look at it I am reminded of the whole story that lies behind this ring and our engagement. (You can read about our engagement story here – it’s quite long but there are some pictures too 😉 )
The ring was made just for me after a design that S. came up with and that he had then made by a friend/acquaintance of him who is a goldsmith. I love the ring – for me it couldn’t be any more perfect or fitting and I love the fact that no-one else in the world has the exact same ring! 🙂
The layout itself is rather simple with lots of ephemera pieces and stickers (and a whole bunch of hearts in any shape and size). When I was done with most of it, the top of the page was still white and it felt a bit empty. So I grabbed a few of my favourite Heidi Swapp Color Shine sprays (black, gold lamé, primrose and coral) and splashed them onto the top of the page. At first I wasn’t sure if I liked it, but I have grown to like it now!
That’s it from me for this month’s blog hop. If you want some more inspiration, go check out the other ladies’ blogs! 🙂
