Happy Sunday!

I hope everyone is having a relaxing Sunday so far today. I went and took some time for myself this morning and went and got a pedicure. Things have been so hectic for me lately between work and getting ready for my husband’s family reunion which was last weekend.

In between everything going on I was able to slip in some time and create this great layout of my husband. This is my take on the amazing sketch provided by Beggahuna for this month’s kit.

I love this picture of him that I took in October 2008 when we were in Jamaica on a mini vacation to celebrate my cousin’s 30th birthday.

I used the Swirlydoos September kit “Mon Amour”. This kit is filled with beautiful papers that give you a Parisian feel. When I saw all of the red in the kit I knew the picture of my husband would work perfect with these papers.

I used my zutter to distress the edges of the circles and then ran distress ink around the edges.
