Just My Sketches - Love You

Here is my April reveal for Just My Sketches. The heart shaped photo's were actually meant to be circles but I think Deanne will forgive me as they are something other than your regular 6x4's...
This layout is a little bit of an inside joke, the photos are of Stefan & Charlotte when we were in Albury recently. Stefan is Sarah & Mark's son, Sarah is probably the closest thing I have to a sister, she has known me since I was alot younger than these 2 are and it doesn't seem to matter how far away I go (because I'm the one who moves, she has stuck around, now she literally lives around the corner from where I grew up lol) we always keep in touch and we can always just pick up right where we left off and hang out as if it hasn't been over a year since the last time we saw each other, so we were really really excited to find out that we would be having our first child at around the same time (there are about 3 1/2 months between Charlotte & Stefan) and then we were even more excited when I had a girl & Sarah had a boy (neither of us found out ahead of time what we were having) and we decided the day Stefan was born that he would have to marry Charlotte so we could be related! Because of all this I thought it was only fitting that the journalling should read "Charlotte & Stefan - True love forever..."
The funniest part of the whole thing is that these photo's were probably the loviest they acted towards each other the whole weekend, when you have 2 only children under 18 months they don't tend to share very well and we had a few little barnies lol
I have used the Stained Glass technique for the flower in the top corner & I have cut out another heart from the love you in DSP and popped it up on a dimensional.
If you want to have a go of the sketch here it is:
