Hi there,

The new Challenge from Scrapping4funChallenges is Challenge #11 - Monograms

I create a double layout. This is my DIL, my son and DIL are living in Sydney Australia till the end of this year. There is someone who makes this funny masks. When I saw the picture of Tirza, with the watermelon I knew I must make a scrap page.

I downloaded the letters from the internet.
I cut it out on a cereal box, then I used Distress paint for the color.
I used Distress Crackle paint over the letters. 
The rest of the letters are Thickers - Fuchsia Chipboards.
I used Pion Designs Paper and for the brown branches, I used brown puff paint.

Another layout I created.

How I met my husband?
My husband and I met at the Church in October 1985. I was baptized, and on exiting the church he congratulated me. Friday's were youth church and in the following youth meeting I AGAIN  :* saw him. 
He was a youth leader, and from that day onwards we started contacting each other frequently. That December I joined my parents on holiday and notice I really missed him. (No Mobil Phones) ;-)
Returning from holiday things happened fast.

We started seeing much of each other. We both knew that this was right and there was no doubt in our minds that we were meant for each other. What followed was normal for my husband and me but from the outside people reacted differently. Some kept on staring at my clothes, others winced when they talk about the date. Our true friends were happy for us.

What followed was the big question and we were both eager to find the right date and didn't want to wait any longer. High and Low the next available date happened 5 months from the day we met. We are blessed with 2 lovely children our son Leon 26, full-time in the ministry, and our beautiful daughter Chelene 22, is a hairdresser. 

What is your love story?
