More Than Words ~ It's All Song Blog Hop

Welcome to the It's All Song Blog Hop!  You should have arrived from RHONDA's blog. If you found me first, please go to the BEGINNING so you don't miss anything!

I love music.  It was really hard to pick just one song, but I really love the song that is my husband and my first song ~ More Than Words from Extreme.  I had been burned by someone who thought he could just say "I love you" to make it all better.  This song is all about showing someone how you love them without saying it.  This is how Mike (my husband) treats me!

Like most projects, I grabbed my Gypsy to get started.

I opened up Quarter Note and welded my title together.  The letters are sized to 1.47 inches.  I welded them first then grew them until they were 11.55 inches wide to fit the top of my page.  I put the layers of the guitar on my mat at 4.76 inches.

Next I opened Paper Lace 2 and welded four music scores from the  Lace 2 Function Button.  I sized them to 11.50w x 1.76h to create a border.

I used Birthday Bash for the font for "our first song" sized to .49 inches.

I used black and burgundy cardstock to cut them out.

I put some flowers from Art Philosophy at 5 inches as well as the guitar layer and used music paper to cut them out.  When I put the layout together, it needed more maroon.  I re-cut the title and one of the flowers in maroon cardstock.

I think the burgundy title pops on the music paper.  I love making these 3D flowers!  I will use my bone folder to flatten them a bit before I include this in my album.  I will display it for a while first!

The song has a lot of guitar in it so I wanted to include one.

I found the words on the internet and copied them onto white card stock.  I added our engagement photo.  This fall will be our 20th Anniversary.  I can't believe we have been together almost half of our lives!

I hope you enjoyed my song and story!!  Your next stop is HERE!

What a beautiful layout. I love the flowers. I have that cartridge but my Cricut is in hiding until we move. I'll have to get it out then and try those. TFS Jearise in Lorby's World.

Beautiful layout, Lori!! :) I remember listening to this song the first time we ever heard it on the radio -- we were having a picnic out of the back of my Mustang... and it was "our" song too (which we also danced to at our wedding)... Bittersweet memories as I lost him several years ago. What a treat to have a peek into what a special song this is for you. :)
