I love the collage feel that is brought to this layout...
This is another page from Jake's proposal. We went to dinner and walked around downtown San Antonio earlier in the date. We captured some great memories....

I really love the pictures we took so I had to make the page just as cute!


1. Pom-pom ribbon

2. The paper; so many different types of papers and colors! Love them...

3. Pop up letters, "texas" [p.1] and "tweet" [p.2.]

4. Use of Alamo brochure

5. Page 2; need I say more?!
I was feeling nostalgic because Jake proposed in June...


1. The proposal story [p.2]; I love all the images and different stickers I used to make up the story.

2. The clusters [both pages] of flowers, pop stickers etc.

Some favorite details [page 1]:

1. The "love" in the bird's tail which starts off my page title "love is an adventure"

2. The heart "paper clips", thank you Corina's cricket!

3. The framed flower 

4. The cut out circles running along left side, cut from a scrap of paper.
Some favorite details [page 2]:

1. Ribbion and twine attached at bottom by a washer and 2 brads

2. The matching circles down right side of page, matching page 1

3. Framed "&" symbol
You know those cute stickers you can buy at Hobby Lobby, Walmart, Michael's etc.? 
Why not save the $3-$6 bucks and make your own?

I took my inspiration for my large bird from my bird paper (right side of my page). I chose similar colors, the blues, in my scrap paper pile and made the bird. 

If your not much of an artist use a pencil and lightly sketch your desired cut out before hand. 

I glued my "beak" down first and then my "feet" and last my bird "body" and "wing." I drew the eye lashes with a skinny black Sharpie.

It turned out great! Plus I got to use scrap paper. 

Waste not, want not, right?

You can see my bird inspiration a little better on my paper to the right.
