Creative inspiration 18 and champagne mix-up


The challenge over at Creative inspiration this week is distressing so I decided to enter this layout that I finished yesterday. The background is made using weathered wood, worn lipstick and walnut stain. I sprayed it with golden glimmer mist and stamped text and swirls with chestnut ink. The sentiment is a part of the lyrics Your mother and mine from Disney's Peter Pan.

I wanted to keep the layout simple to focus on the sentiment, hence the lack of charms and such, and the background paper sparkle nicely in itself :).

The other picture is from this Saturday (my hubby took it and he's nowhere near a photographer, hence the very odd angle of the picture). We had been married for 10 years this Friday so we had a hotel night booked in Sundsvall to go to the casino with our friends. When we arrived at the hotel this awaited me in the room. Chris had arranged for the flowers to be there and the hotel had fixed champagne, strawberries, chocolate, tea candles, robes... the works! It was perfect - apart from the fact that they accidently put all of it in the wrong room, lol. Since Chris had booked both hotel rooms they put all the stuff in our friends' room but they kinda figured it was for the anniversary couple and carried the lot over to us, hehe.
