Okay, this was the layout I expected to do some journaling on. Well, yet again I have managed to change my mind because there seemed to be "no room for it." Ah!
This layout is special to me, because my husband and I watched the movie together back in the day (1997, I believe). He made fun of the scene depicted on the sticker I used on this layout. Later, he felt bad for ruining what I at the time thought was a beautiful scene. So a few weeks later, when he saw this sticker, he bought it for me. I held onto it, not scrapping at the time and not knowing exactly what to do with it, although I thought it was a sweet and romantic gesture. I kept it in my nightstand. He also took me to see the Titanic exhibit at Canada's Wonderland in 1998 and bought me the movie on laser disc (yes, I said laser disc). Well, this year I went to see the 3D version of the movie with a friend for the 100-year anniversary of Titanic. So I put the movie ticket from the 3D version on this layout too. And suddenly I knew exactly what to do with my special sticker from many years ago!
I made the "heart of the ocean" necklace, of course, to go with the theme. The gates were cut on my mom's Cricut and given to me, because although not identical, they had the elegance of the doors on the Titanic and reminded me of the elevator gates. I dressed up the chandelier with Stickles, a rhinestone, and one Swarovski crystal. I used a lot of glitter, some pearls, and lots of rhinestones to denote the opulence of the awesome ship in its day.
Thanks to my mom ("Quick Silver") for the gates and Katie ("KDQ") for the idea to use them on this layout.
Thank you to all who view this layout and leave a comment.
