Young Love; Twisted Sketches; Antique Linen ~ November Swirlydoos Scrapbook Kit


Hi everyone, happy Friday!! Here is one of my favorite layouts yet. This is of my Mom and Dad on their Wedding Day. I also did this for this weeks sketch and challenge over at Twisted Sketches. The challenge was to use ruffles on your layout. I hope dad doesn't mind?? And I also used my Swirlydoos November ~ Antique Linen ~ Scrapbook Kit. This is actually one of my favorite kits yet. The paper is just gorgeous!! I did add in a few paper flowers, thickers and ribbon. The journaling on the back reads:

Young Love,
Who could have imagined that one young man, Eldon ****, who just turned 21, and was from ****, Oklahoma, and one young lady, Lola ****, who was 16 but just 2 months from her 17th Birthday, and who was from Missouri, but visiting her older brother Earl and his wife, Norma, in ****, Oklahoma, would meet, fall in love and get married on October 5, 1950. And from their love, they would have
4 wonderful children (including me!),
12 beautiful grandchildren, and
17 beautiful great-grandchildren and more are on the way!!
This has truly been a love affair that has lasted throughout the years and is still going strong..
Mom and Dad, we love you very much!!
Fern

Fern, this is such a wonderful tribute about the love of your parents. I've been eyeing that Swirlydoos kits but alas is all sold out. Your flowers are great ... just all around wonderful.

Oh gosh, this story is so wonderful. I'm sitting here and thinking how inspiring great love stories are and how much I want that myself. I absolutely love everything about your page, the ruffles especially and how well the papers go with the story. You made my day! My best from London! /Reija, Twisted DT
