Scenic Route goodies

Honestly, this is 1 paper line which I can't get enough of.
Really this is a CHA Summer winner for me! I love the reds, olives, browns... but this time for this LO, I used some older SR stuff like Laurel and Office Arrows.
As you already know, i am a fan of SR....... having many of their older collections but I am still hoarding and using.. and then 're-buying' (is that such a word) them.......
Anyway, here is my SR goodies "Will you marry me?"
I realised that I didn't scrap about how my hubby proposed to me. I better do that, in case my mind goes senile and really forgetful some day. Now at least the facts are still "re-call-able" and both of us can agree what happened on that eventful day! Actually we had a big quarrel and a 'fight"..... LOL!
Concept: I took a photo of his hand over mine... my little diamond ring there.. haha.. we joke that it looked really small now....... but that ring means a lot to me cos it took him more than a month salary when we were still poor fresh grads from university. He started his first job. And for him to take all that money and buy me that ring is really touching! (crying now!)
Journaling is tucked behind the photo.
Technique: I cut 2 hearts from SR pp and I played with UTEE (oh.. you really got to try this stuff). Somehow, the heart look so good! Like a expoxy sticker...... somehow it stands out!
I also distress the red background paper a bit.. to give it some shadows and depth....
