59 - How do I love thee

I loved doing this layout! I chose to go with a photo of my older daughter watching the Christmas decorations in a shop window and journaled how she's really dear and perfect to me.

Evidence used: bird (stamps), numbers (in the tape measure and in embellishments), something transparent (vellum and that Prima lamp), branch (stenciled), texture paste (in the background), embossing (the heart and in the red, self made paper)

So many gorgeous aspects to this LO - a masterclass in using so many elements - I love it.  Especially forming the title that way across the page - inspiring

The mix of details is just fabulous.  Love that background paper, I would never have known how to use this pattern but the touch of red really sets the page off.
