The picture was taken a few years ago at Santa's Enchanted Forest at Miami, FL and its of my hubby and I kissing in a gazebo. I used the new Heartfelt Creations 12x12 Paper Collection for this layout..

I stamped, colored and fuzzy cut a bird cage. I added diamond stickles to the doves to make them stand out.

For my title I actually used three words to describe that moment. I added an iron fence under it and two more white doves.

Of course, I handmade a bunch of red poinsettias and added dew drops as their centers. I filled in the cluster with leaves, flourishes and red berries.

Here's another look at my cluster.

Here is the step by step write-up for this layout:
Cut a wavy border on all 4 sides of the pattern paper. Distress with the edges of a pair of scissors and ink the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink. Adhere unto black cardstock and machine stitch around the borders. Cut a shaped paper out of the stripped pattern paper. Doodle faux stitches and add in the center of background. Mat your photo and place in the center. Stamp, die cut and shape a bunch of different size poinsettias from the Petite Poinsettia Precut Set. Layer two if the same size to make one flower and add three dew drops as the flower center. Stamp and die cut a few leaves from that set as well. Stamp and die cut some berries from the Organic Fillers Precut Set. Add flowers, leaves and berries to form a cluster under the photo. Stamp, color and fuzzy cut one birdcage and four flourishes from the Holiday Haven Precut Set. Add to layout as shown. Stamp and die cut a lamp and add on left side of photo. Pop dot the light to give it dimension. Die cut a black fence and two doves from the Garden Romance Die set and add to the right side of the photo. Add three words over top right corner of photo as the title. Finally, add Diamond stickles to flowers, greenery, doves, and lightbulb and Burgundy stickles over the berries.
