Draw Me A Map - Let's Get Shabby Challenge #8

Here's a layout I made for challenge 8 in Let's Get Shabby. Since it's February and it's the month of lurvve..... this month it's all about Valentine's. The challenge is to include "a letter/s or note/s that you've written or been written by you or others living or passed".

Interesting right? Sure is!!

So here's my take, of which I included a hand-drawn road map that hubby did when we got engaged. It was to show the way to his parents' house. Me and my parents were going for a visit for the first time and I made him draw me a map.









Ok, technically it's not a love letter or note but I've kept it all this while, and I didn't feel like publishing our love letters to each other (hehee!!), so I guess this will do. I had it laminated in the hope that it will always be preserved.

I also included a picture of us. I can't make a layout without a picture in it...

Materials used:
Patterned paper: 7Gypsies, Basic Grey, Bo Bunny. Journal and die cut cards: 7Gypsies, Making Memories, Jilibean Soup. Chipboard clock: Heidi Swapp. Flowers blings: Prima Marketing. Cardstock border: Crate paper. Metal heart: Making Memories. Pearls: KaiserKraft. Rub ons: Hambly, Maya Road. Others: Maya Road mist, lace, leaf trinket pins, TH Distress ink pads, Ranger alcohol ink.


Target : 100 layouts
Done: 7 layouts
To do: 93 layouts
