Happy 46th Anniversary Mama & Daddy

My parent's are celebrating 46 years of marriage today! On their anniversary last year, we took them out for the day & I recently scrapped the photos from that outing. I actually stated with Sketch Support's Two-Page Sketch #24 but ended up adding some extra photos as usual.

In an effort to use my stash this year, I cleaned up my room in early January and filled a basket with lots of fun supplies that had not yet been incorporated into my color bins. I have this basket on my craft table and am comitting to using at least one item out of it on each layout. The triangle border & all the pieces of this little embellishment cluster came from that basket.

I also enjoyed adding some memorabilia on this layout - our four tickets & titles cut from brochures.

Happy Anniversary Mama & Daddy
We Love Y'all

Love this layout Melissa! I had to pack up my new and old bins and I miss them so, so much. I love the idea of using something from your stash on every layout. This layout is awesome with all the photos and the fun title and the memorabilia. Love all of it! :)
