Check out their stories and get inspired to tell your own. I used traditionally themed elements like hearts and confetti, but in a bright color scheme which is not typical of a wedding theme. It supports the idea that, yes, we got married, but it was not a typical wedding. It was not about our family or friends. It was about us. It was about having fun. It was about celebrating all the things that bring us together as a couple.
I included a photo that I googled of the movie poster, other than that the muted shades of grey, red and pops of turquoise add a little zap of colour from the neutral back ground paper that I used for the journaling. The story is what this layout is all about so I wanted to make it easy to read. I created a visual triangle with clusters, top left with the title, this also helps to set the scene.
The eye then moves right to the photo where I have added the date back in Little did he know that I was really wanting to see the Living Daylights and having it be a date was an even better option. My mother wanted to meet him so he came around for supper first and arrived 45 minutes late. He was a typical student and loved having a home cooked meal.
After the movie we chatted in is car for a bit and then he came home with me for coffee. I love the trendy gold color right now and I think it signifies that the relationship I have with my husband is valuable. I used hearts for love. I also used ledger paper because my husband is detail oriented and the brush stroke title and coffee cup stains were more messy — like me.
Charlie had just returned from dropping off the kids at school. Get me a pot of coffee and a pot of tea and a glass of water! He really does take care of you.

This photo was taken on the night we took a midnight walk on the beach in Waikiki.

I focused on the photo and the journaling; therefore, there is minimal embellishing. We walked hand in hand in the darkness, the moon providing just a little light on the horizon, the waves crashing on the shore. Then again, it went by so fast. We are a little older. We have more wrinkles. We have more patience. The small things are meaningful in our lives. He still tells me he loves me and how beautiful I am. Our bond grows stronger each day, each year.
I wanted to go on a cruise and he wanted to go camping. I wrote the story so that it appears funny to the reader. He was a boy. She was a girl. And on one fine day of July, they united their lives. Following that day, there was a big trip to come, but first, they had to make a decision. He wanted to go camping. She wanted to go cruising. They made a compromise and they met in the middle. She had to buy a tuque. They spent many more nights in hotel rooms than he had plan to. And then came the 7 days, cruising around the Caribbean Sea.
It was an awesome cruise. The first of many more. I then infused pops of pink throughout the page to create a girly feel—a detail taken straight from my story. Finally I used the brushwork along the sides to create a bracketed feel and to sort of frame and isolate my story on the page.
And because you love me—so are you. You sat through the likes of the Notebook, and Last Song, through A Walk to Remember and Message in a Bottle without a single snide remark, but at Dear John is apparently where you drew the line!
