Challenge Entry: My Only Dream ( Scrap LO)

New year counts for new creative adventures.  So here I am with my first LO to kick off 2012.  I used some bold colours on my LO this time.  Something new for me, as I am usually inclined to soft pastels.

Here it goes... I titled it "My Only Dream is to Grow Old with You".


Close up on the title details.  If you have noticed, I have grown fond of using different lettering for my LO titles.  It adds more interest I reckon. ;)


Some detail on the top border embellishment as well.  The text is quite fitting to my LO's subject...


Some chipboard and fabric flower for some extra touch.



And of course, the stars of the show (LOL).  This is a photo of me and Hubby Cookie taken at the Infinity
Pool side of The Fullerton Hotel here in Singapore.  We were celebrating Hubby Cookie's birthday then (November 2009).  The photo with our hands clasped was taken during our Pre-Wedding photoshoot in Manila (July 2010), so I didn't have a wedding band there yet just the proposal ring. :)
