Red means love

The sketch this week from The Scrappiest:
 
Don't forget to come on over and play along.  There is a great prize up for grabs this month.

I used my Scarlet Lime kit that I have had for awhile now.  When I wanted to scrap these photos and found (yes found ... forgot I had, hehehe) this kit it all fell together rather easily.  It is all about how I get red roses for valentines every year, but I really don't like red roses... white and pink I love but don't really like red.  The girls think this is funny as hubby has been told (certainly not on valentine's when he gives them for me) throughout the year when I talk about flowers in my garden and such.  I have probably discussed it every year a couple of times a year since we have been married... perhaps I shouldn't talk during hockey - LOL!  Oh well I do love that he thinks of me and buys me some fresh flowers as I do love bouquets.

Wow, what a great layout, Laurel! Sometimes our gifts are more about what they want to give us, rather than what we ask for. You probably hit the nail on the head in your journaling, to him red is love.

Wonderful layout to tell the story!
