Thank You (OUAS August 15th Challenge)

After almost 2 months of borderline non-productivity due to the big move into our new home, I can now say that I am 99% up and creating again :)  My scraproom is still in shambles though, but give me another week and it should be all organized, functional and pretty!  Pictures to come soon!

When i saw the August 15th Challenge at Once Upon a Sketch, i knew that i absolutely had to participate!  Apart from DT work, this was my first project since the move.  The journaling criteria for this challenge is to add at least 2 sentences from my favorite song and take inspiration from this gorgeous sketch!
One of my all-time favorite songs is "Thank You" by Led Zeppelin.  Most people would not even know that such a rockin' band could make such a romantic song.  The lyrics are so sweet and speak directly to my heart.  Every day, whether out loud or deep down in my soul, i thank Yves for loving me and thank the higher powers to have put him in my path after years and years of searching.  He is truly now my #1 inspiration in all things beautiful!

Here are a few close-ups of the title and the journaling:

The collection used is Fancy Pants' Happy Together which is so pretty with its different hues of blues and greens. The aqua blue flowers are from Prima and the rest were hand-made using various punches. The leafy scrolls are from Dusty Attic and the bling is from ZVA Creative.

Thank you so much for looking! If you like my layout and want your heart to be inspired by this beautiful song too, click HERE and take a listen :)
