Love Begins Here

Well what I thought today as an easy sketch challenge, became quite challenging for me. One of the reasons was the amount of words and quotes the background paper I chose had. I made this layout for two sketch challenges. One from The Scrappiest, sketch #119 (see sketch below) and the other challenge from "Bird is the Word". I had to use the word "Begin" Well after designing the layout, I had  to think of a title that would fit the picture, the words in the background and that uses the word begin. It took me a long time but I finally came up with "Love Begins Here" which fits the page perfectly and ties it in with the words family on the background papers. I also changed the vertical background strips of the sketch to horizontal strips so the words will be straight. The papers I used are from Rusty Pickle. I got them many years ago at a scrapbooking convention and never used them I love when I dig through my stash for old papers to use. I distressed all the papers and embellishments to make them look antique...
