VRAI AMOUR (true love)

Paper and Fabric  wall hanging~


 This was done for my parents; celebrating 60 years together!

This is their High School Graduation photos.
Using heavy chipboard as the base; I added various papers, linen, hanky edges, lace, netting, & punched paper. Some of the laces are vintage. There are a few silk flowers from (>) Treasors Deluxe  and ribbon... even a bit of washi tape (my dad is a musician so I added a bit of music washi tape.)  Well...  there's lots on here!  I rubber stamped  all the 'postal' stuff and the Vrai Amour.
 The wall hanging is Approximately 10"X10" & hangs from a sheer taupe colored ribbon.

I would like to tell you a little of their story~
They met in 6th grade and fell in love!  They started dating as soon as social norms would permit; and have been together ever since! Married 1 year out of high School.  Dad absolutely adores her to this day, and Mom is such a loving and faithful wife.  I could go on and on, but I will just stop here and say,   theirs, is a story of  "~Vrai  Amour~"
 
Have a wonderful day!
Karen
