a love-y layout with joshua giraffe

well hello again!
today i have a little layout...that is pretty 'me-specific', lol! well, the title that is!
this layout is also up on the Newton's Nook Designs Blog, so be sure to check it out there! :)

ok, a little background info - my husband and i have been together since i was we have a lot of history! and part of that history is silly, and laughable and makes us smile and cringe at the same time to think of! for instance, does anyone know the song by Raffi - Joshua Giraffe? um...yes i used to work in daycares and nanny through high school and college, so i'm well versed in the world of Raffi! and my husband's name is 

this layout is YEARS in the making! lol!
i used the cute little giraffes from the Wild Child stamp set! i LOVE them! they were watercolored and then fussy cut! i also used the leaf image from that set to emphasize the yellow-y watercolored areas on the background. 

when we went to the zoo last summer, i just knew i was going to scrap this picture! it's my hubby and i with the giraffes! so us! :)

i both like and don't like this layout! ha! the more i look at it, the more i like, it but it's...not quite 'perfect!' lol! i added the title (ha ha!) with thickers and some tiny type. i also layered lots of papers behind the photo and added some flair and washi too. i didn't want to go crazy! (i have been known when NOT to stop!)

be sure to check out the post on the Newton's Nook blog and leave some love, i would so excited if you did!! :)
