the love we give away is . . .

The only love we keep by Elbert Hubbard.  Well this layout took forever and went in a different direction that what I had planned.



I changed the photo to a black and white in Photoshop Elements then I started with the background paper from my Counterfeit Kit and then layered on the doilies.  Some I cut with my Cricut others are from the Dollar store and are misted. 


I added a few banners in green and the tag in the to bring a little more color into it.  It was just looking way to dark with all the browns.


I added a flower cut in half and a piece of the doily to the top of the page where the edges are torn and rolled in.


Thanks for stopping by.
