Truly Madly Deeply

Who remembers this great song?

*sigh* I love Savage Garden and the song fit perfectly for my latest wedding layout. I was inspired by the classy sketch from Sketchy Thursdays.
After the ceremony, Dave and I took a horse drawn carriage ride to the beautiful and historical Gettysburg battlefields. We found 2 little spots that were soo perfect. It was a tad muddy, but I didn't care. I have been wanting to do a truly fall page and since tomorrow is the first day of Autumn I seized the moment.
I used my Sure Cuts A Lot to cut the "top note" background in an olive color and matted on the bright reddish purplish cardstock. I stitched the frame in brown to make it stand out. These are a few of the actual leaves we had scattered about at the reception. I had gotten them in a huge pack at Michaels.
I kept thinking this page needed something. But, when Dave got home from work his "WOAH" reaction said it was just fine. First time in a long time that I made a layout with just cardstock and a picture and a few embellishments. I have become so addicted to patterned paper, it was nice to get back to basics - even for just one layout.
