A New Era

I had a hard time with this one. I knew what I wanted it to look like...but it took a lot of trial and error to find out where to place things so that the focus was on the necklace, but not stuck there...


Caption reads: July 3rd 2008 will always be in my mind as a Very Important Day. It was the day Brent came home from a month-long trip to the Czech Republic, it was our 10th Anniversary, and it was the beginning of an new era. It was the day Brent first gave me a gift of jewelry. We no longer had to use gifts as a means to buy expensive household items. This Garnet necklace was the first expensive, frivolous gift...and will always be a symbol of our New Era.

I love this layout! I love how you have the special jewelry piece hanging from the pop-up heart and the flower embellishments in the corner with the journaling. It's just all so well-balanced and beautiful. Great job!

Beautifully designed! I love how the necklace completes the heart and how the heart looks 3-dimensional. I also like the placement of the journaling tucked inside the ribbon. Lovely, feminine look to the whole page.

I think you did a great job designing hs layout! I love the way you suspended the necklace inside the heart. Great journaling too.

Wow what a great technique, the necklace doesn't hog your attention but you can't take your eyes off it!! Love the torn page you journalling on and the lovely cluster, great job!
