Treasure Every Moment

Hey yall! I just finished up this layout for the May Sketch challenge at Treasured Scrapbooking. I used the some of my new K&Co. Serafera paper and a journaling card that coordinates. The alpha's are a mix of Jenni Bowlin chalkboard alpha's and Thickers. I cut the photo into strips. I also incorporated some sewing, brown fabric, ribbon, and distressing. Here it is:

My journaling reads: (this is a poem I found online)
Will you ever believe my feelings are true?
What must be done to truly convince you?
You might listen to words I have said in the past,
But they cannot be heard, for mere words never last.
You might look instead at what I have done,
I have been there for you, like the moon and the sun.
I listened with patience to all you confided,
Judging not once, no matter what you decided.
Unconditional support without compromise,
Always embraced you, when you looked in my eyes.
I have done all of this, with more than pleasure,
For each time you smile, it is a moment I treasure.
This may not convince you that my feelings are true,
But one day you will look back & know that I have loved you!

Thanks for lookin'! Have a wonderful afternoon!
Pin It!

Aymee, this is another wonderful layout. I absolutely love the poem!! I also like the way you used the photo, the zigzag sewing, the journaling card, and the clock with the button in the middle (how very creative)!!!
