You & I Both

I just love the song "You and I Both" by Jason Mraz, and decided to title this layout just so. The photo of course is of me and DH taken during our anniversary month in June. I love these papers from Webster's Pages' Inspired collection and added lace, pearls and roses for a romantic feel.

I cut parts of the flourishes, leaves and butterfly of the background paper to tuck the photo and matting paper under.

I then cut out the swirls from the Inspired Calendar and Shady Lane papers and layered the laces and pearls on top of it for texture and dimension.

I also laid the pearl flourishes to match the directions of the flourishes and flowers on the background Peacefulness paper.

Finally, I cut out butterflies from the Inspired Calendar paper and glued down only the centre of the butterflies, leaving the wings free to fold slightly upwards for even more dimension.
