16 - When You Say You Love Me

Absolutely gorgeous color palette yet again.

I used a detail of a photo of me and Franco's hands and highlighted it with a blingy sparkly circle.
This song by Johs Groban is everything I feel and have always felt for my husband.

So for my evidence I've used sparkly things (the crystals and brads), shiny things + metallic paper (two circles on the upper left), stacked elements( wash tape, patterned paper, film strip) and musical element (one tiny circle cut out of music sheet).

As for my journaling I used a song title and journaled off of this. The title is formed by 6 words so I guess it could be considered a 6 word memoir.
I translated part of the song into Italian and added how our journey has lasted for 30 years and I hope it will last forever.

I wrote the whole song on the back of my layout.

"When You Say You Love Me lyrics"

Like the sound of silence calling,
I hear your voice and suddenly
I'm falling, lost in a dream.
Like the echoes of our souls are meeting,
You say those words and my heart stops beating.
I wonder what it means.
What could it be that comes over me?
At times I can't move.
At times I can hardly breathe.

When you say you love me
The world goes still, so still inside and
When you say you love me
For a moment, there's no one else alive

You're the one I've always thought of.
I don't know how, but I feel sheltered in your love.
You're where I belong.
And when you're with me if I close my eyes,
There are times I swear I feel like I can fly
For a moment in time.

Somewhere between the Heavens and Earth ,
And frozen in time, Oh when you say those words.

When you say you love me
The world goes still, so still inside and
When you say you love me
For a moment, there's no one else alive

And this journey that we're on.
How far we've come and I celebrate every moment.
And when you say you love me,
That's all you have to say.
I'll always feel this way.

When you say you love me
The world goes still, so still inside and
When you say you love me
In that moment,I know why I'm alive

When you say you love me.
When you say you love me.
Do you know how I love you?

On a side note: every time I hear this song I get very emotional. Yep, I guess I'm still in love!

Aaaww...romance! I'm a sucker for it! It's so so wonderful to read about true feelings (any feelings that are heartfelt). And then you have this very unique and funky cool style that is to die for and I agree with Brit -makes me wanna scrap right away! xoxo
