Word Art Wednesday #44

It's the first Wednesday of the month so it's double sponsor day!  Today is all about love and our word art is from 1 John...

This weekend Tim and I had the priviledge of attending our friends' 50th wedding anniversary celebration. And what a celebration it was!!!  They renewed their wedding vows, there was praise dancing, singing, tributes, toasting, great food, and dancing.  But the thing that stood out the most was the love of God that filled the room.  When the couple spoke, they repeatedly testified that it was nothing but God that kept them together for 50 years, through the ups and the downs, the good times and the not so good ones.  Everyone that stood up to give a tribute, spoke on the love of God that radiated from the couple.  Some even testified that the couple was responsible for leading them to Christ. So since today's word is about love,  I'm dedicating my layout today to Roy and Dorothy Tibbs on their 50th anniversary.

Sei Patterned Paper
Martha Stewart Cardstock
EK Success Alphabet Stickers
Jelly Park Digi Stamp
Copic Markers
Glossy Accents

The little couple on the sofa is a digi stamp from one of this week's sponsors Jellypark.  I colored it with copics, added glossy accents and cut it out to make a little embellishment.

 And since this was a dressy affair,  Tim and I put on our finest for the occasion. (For some reason, the camera gave us "white" eye.)
