5th LO with my April Kit

Morning all

It's promising to be another lovely day here in Kent and I, for one, am really looking forward to it! 

Today I bring to you a LO that I made with my Counterfeit kit, which also fitted the brief of the weekly challenge over on UKS. 

My task was to create a LO documenting 
1)  change in my life
2) Lots of white space
3) Use something at least 4 years old.

I started off with finding a sketch to use.. this one is from  Creative Scrappers Blog  here. Their website os full of inspirations.. trust me.. I know! I am a regular visitor! 

Here is the sketch... at first I wasn't sure if I was  that keen on it..but then I got stuck in and it flowed for me. 

In the end I used some old, large, white sequins from my sewing box (never knew what to do with then) as my 'item over 4 years old'. As I have only been scrapping for about 3 years that was a tough one for me! 

Anyway.. here is the end result. 

I used meeting my husband as the 'Event that changed your life'. I was just 14 and he was 16 when we met and we have been together 39 years! Who said love at first sight doesn't work? This is a photo of him back then.

I think you can work out the white space for yourself! I added some start as that is what he is to me.. altogether now.. aww!
