Wanted: You!

It's February, and most of us thrill with love, aren't we? So a page with love theme will be perfect to welcome this kindhearted-month. But...I'm running out of pink or red paper :( Luckily, one of my friend is gonna have a wedding party with cowboy theme as they had pre-wedding photo shoots on cowboy costumes...and...he ask me to make a scrapbook page to be displayed on his wedding day!! Yeahhhh.... Sounds very perfect for me. Cowboy means vintage and lots of brown color :) Thank you, dear friend. Hugs..hugs..

So, this is my LO
First of all, I would like to mention Regina Langford (I found her here) for the stunning sentiment "Wanted: You" that I use for this LO. Hope she's fine I'm using her design for my personal project.

Yes, it's cowboy-in-love theme. I use paper from DCWV Tattered Time stack as base paper, and Bo Buny Et Cetera Extra as the front paper. It's all brown paper. For main photo, sepia tones suit so much with the theme. And for additional two photos, I ask my friend to do some digital imaging and print those photos on blue tones (not black and white anyway).

Here's the details
I fully distressed the paper to make it more vintage look. Can you feel the old country cowboy era? Hope you do :)
My favorite part: The opening windows!!! I use chipboard without any accent, adhere it to paper with open position :) It's a new thing for me.

For main photo's layout, I got inspiration from Critter Sketch who celebrate their 100th blog post this week. Then I broaden the sketch into a layout :)

I curl three edges of this page and put sentiments inside. It all contain Wanted: You sentiment. Really love it!
Here's the blueish image. I put eyelets on the edges to add another textures on my layout.
The title: "Wanted: You". As he wants her so much to be his wife. Happy wedding, dear friend :)
