My Engaging Artwork

It's time I share the art pieces featured on Jeanette's blog a couple of weeks ago!

Valentine's Day is just around the corner.

So now is a perfect time to get some of those more romantic memories scrapped and maybe use as gifts.  From Millan.Net

Here is the story behind my "Engaging Artwork":

When Engineer and I were in college, we were big band geeks and were part of the marching band...Go Pride!  Anyway, one of the great perks about being in the band is travel.  Our last year had one amazing trip...to Europe!
One of the stops we made was in Paris. From Millan.Net  We had been dating for just over a year and had decided that being in Paris was the perfect place to propose.  Only thing was...we had each decided to surprise the other with a ring!  We waited until we were at the top of the Eiffel Tower and we each brought out a ring to give to the other.  Talk about a romantic surprise!  From Millan.Net  Of course we both said yes and had lots of laughs and hugs with our friends that were with us.

Then I took out a pen and scribbled our names and date on the railing.  Yes, yes  I graphittied on an international landmark.  And yes, I did take a photo of it! From Millan.Net

So while I don't have photos of us together on the Tower, or of that special moment, I do have these two photos that mean the world to me and take me back to that evening just as well as anything else.

Stamps: Jardin
Inks: Champagne, Cashmere, Saddle, Desert Sand, Archival Black
Papers: La Belle Vie Reflections Kit, White Daisy cardstock
Tools: cutting knife, micro-tip scissors
Accessories: Opaques Pearl Flourishes, Bitty Pearl Gems

So I hope you get inspired to scrap some of those extra special moments in your life.  It's the best way to relive them with your loved ones!
