Quick Craft Tips - Anniversary Layout Background

Hello my peeps! This is a very special layout to me. Normally I take the photo and the design of the layout into consideration but for this one, it was ALL about the photos. I made this layout for my husband for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. I chose 25 of my FAVE photos of the two of us. It would have been awesome if I had one for each year but it didn't work out. :(  Picking the photos was one of the most fun parts about creating this layout. It was kinda like I was documenting our love story in teeny tiny photos.

You can watch the video of me making the background by clicking HERE.

Below is a photo of the finished layout. It isn't my most amazing design... but It makes my heart full anyway!!!

And here are some close ups:

I used 3D Foam Squares to pop up the words

 I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the sentiment and stamped the "I" using tiny alpha stamps from Michael's. 

 I used 3 different alpha sets to create this part of the title.

I used 3D Foam Squares to pop up random photos.
