Joyful Stars June Blog Hop


   Welcome to the first ever Joyful Stars Blog Hop!  We're excited to share our creativity with you using our favorite Close To My Heart products.  Thank you for stopping by for the Joyful Stars Team Blog Hop.   If you are coming from Krista Hershberger at Kristascraftycorner.blogspot.com, then you are on the right path.  
   My hubby and I just celebrated our 10 year anniversary in the Bahamas, where we pretended to get married again.  We said nice things to each other, because I like him more than I did 10 years ago!  We hired a photographer to capture our moment.  For our first entry, we had complete freedom to create whatever we wanted.  Here's what I came up with.  The inspiration for this layout can be found on page 34 of the Spring/Summer 2013 Idea Book.
 A Closer Look

 Our vows tucked in a pocket behind the popped journaling box.
