Let's get married! - JBS layout

Anne from Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge has come up with yet another fun challenge for June!

This is June's challenge: 

How did your spouse propose to you? Where? How did you propose to your spouse? 
If this has never happened to you ‐ how did you dream it would? 
Or did you ever want that to happen to you?

I'm ashamed to admit that I can't remember exactly how or when we decided to get married. What I'm sure of is that Patrick didn't go down on one knee and officially proposed! I think it was like this: as soon as I found out that I was pregnant with Manon we knew we wanted to get married before she was born. So that's what we did. 

I chose this photo of Patrick with my dog Murphy (from 1994) as it's one of my favorites of that time. I only knew him for about a year and until then Murphy was the most important figure in my life, so to me it was extremely important that they would get on well. Seeing them together like this, I knew he was the right one for me, lol. 

I used the May papercrafting kit from Jenni Bowlin and added a few bits and pieces of my own (mostly from the Paper Issues store, like the corrugated cardstock people). 

Hope you'll find the time to join us for this fun challenge! 

Thanks for visiting my blog today! 


  1. Amazing page Monique!! Love the misting in the background and the layering looks awesome!! Beautiful mix of colors!!

  4. prachtig!! Geloof dat het bij mij ook zo is gegaan ;)....maar om daar nu over te scrappen, nee deze laat ik maar even voorbij gaan :)
