Engagement Layout

For this layout, I used some paper from a paper stack called Elegant white on white which I got from Hobby Lobby last week while they had their paper stacks on sale. (24 sheets for only $5) Anyways, I used George and Basic Shapes for the rectangle to matt the newspaper clipping, Storybook for the journaling marquee in two layers, and the Sweethearts cart for the silohettes of the man and woman. I did add a rhinestone to the ring. The Hershey Kiss on here was drawn in pencil and then filled in with a black paint pen and silver stickles. I had to add the kiss, because me and my husband have an ongoing thing with Hershey kisses. When we first started dating he asked me if I wanted a kiss and then pulled one out from behind his back, this was a recurring theme through our relationship, and when he proposed to me the first ring box he opened for me actually had a Hershey Kiss in it, then he gave me the real ring box with the ring. So, I thought that was something that had to be incorporated into the engagement layout.

Jean, this is really a very nice layout and I love the rhinestone touch to the ring!

How sweet to do the Hershey Kiss in the ring box first, so romantic! Yep, you've got a keeper!!!
