With the busy schedule of school and homework (man, sometimes I sure miss working full-time!), it's been hard for me lately to create and scrapbook as much as I did two months ago. Even when there is time, school just really burns a girl out! So with those precious times that I do find myself at my desk - honestly, sometime I have to force myself, but after just ten minutes, I don't regret it - I don't stress about making sure I'm documenting every little moment of my life. Because if it starts giving you more stress, what's the fun in that, right?

For me, scrapbooking is just as much about being creative as it is about documenting memories. The layout I want to share with you today is just that - putting pretty products on a page with some nice photos. And throw in a sappy, corny title, because where else am I ever going to be able to do that??

Two Souls, One Love. Our relationship is far from perfect, which is something that's really been resonating as something to work on recently, but this still rings true to me, 100%. We're not perfect, but we can get through anything together with the love we have for each other and by the grace of God.

The layout is based on a loose grid, but to make it more interesting, I cut out some big, colorful flowers from an Elle's Studio paper, something that I've done previously here and have loved. Most of the other pieces in the grid are in the new collections at Elle's Studio.

Similar to that layout, I added embroidery floss behind and around some of the flower cutouts and other elements. I also machine stitched around many parts of the layout. These two additions give both subtle and bold dimension and texture.

Finished it off with a gold resin flower - because I love them, so why not? ;)

Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
