24 Years

Today is my 24th wedding anniversary.  How time does fly!!! Just yesterday my kids were born, then going to school, and they needed us every moment of every day!!  Now they can't seem to get rid of us fast enough! I wanted to share the handmade gift I made for my wonderful hubby.

I made this scrapbook page using 12x12 watercolor paper and Art Anthology sprays.  I initially was going to use hearts but didn't want to use any pink.  I LOVE stars and was thinking about the new Coldplay song, Sky Full of Stars.  So I went with a totally nontraditional look for an anniversary....and I love that I did that!
I die cut the stars from some gelli printed paper that was close in color to the sprays that I used. I finished it off with some grungy stamps, tissue tape and letters.  
I framed it in a black shadowbox frame so he can hang it in his office.  

Here is the matching card.  On the inside I typed: In all kinds of weather.

Then, I went to wrap it and decided to do a quick stamping with some paint on kraft paper.

Hope he likes it!!  Now I have to go get paint off my hands and go out on a date with my hubby!!!
