Poetry Is In The Air

February Blog Hop

Thank you for joining our February …It’s in the Air Blog Hop. We are so excited to celebrate the Month of February in the scrapbooking world with you, while letting you get to know our DT members a little better. The blog hop will give you a peek at their style and techniques. If you have started from the beginning I hope that you enjoyed Emma's challenge!  If you are just joining the hop here, you should go back to the beginning at "Picture This", (after you have checked out my challenge for the hop), so you do not miss anything.
Now I would like to introduce myself: 
Hi, my name is Lisa and I am one of the DT member's of "Picture This Challenges".
My theme is "Poetry is in the Air"
February being the month of love I would like you to create a layout inspired by the Valentine's Day poem:
"The rose is red, The violet's blue, The honey's sweet, and so are you!
Thou Art my Love, and I am Thine. I drew Thee to my Valentine:
The lot was cast and then I drew, And Fortune said, "It should be You."

Here is what I created: A layout using an old fashion Certificate of Marriage that I placed my Mother and Father's Wedding photos on from 1950. First I stamped the background of the red paper with the Wedding Vows. Then, I layered with lace, different red and rose paper. And lastly I included many embellishments, like angels, flowers, and pearls. Since the poem was very passionate I tried to make my layout as romanic as possible.

Here are some close-ups

I stamped the background with "The Wedding Vows" 
and I placed an angel holding Violets.
 I incorporated Red and Rose papers and another angel holding roses
Lots of Layering
"The Rose is Red"

I hope I have inspired you to now start having fun creating with whatever moved you from the poem!
Example: The colors, the flowers and/or the poetry in the poem.
I am so looking forward to seeing your creations!
