I want to be like them, someday.

M's grandmother and grandfather are the sweetest, most adorable couple you'd ever meet. They're always loving and kind to eachother - and to everyone else as well. They're those GOOD PEOPLE you really wish that the world would have more of.

Last year, they celebrated their 60'th wedding anniversary.
Sixtieth. Still as in love. Still as amazingly cute together. Still wearing the same clothes as they did when they were first married.
No kidding. Grandpa had secretly taken them out of storage and freshened them up, to make sure they were wearable. They were. And they still fit.

Isn't that just too adorable for words?!

Here they are, on an LO I made for Scraplagret's challenge to use five layers of PP and paint splatter.
(The cut out leaves is one of the PP's.)



I've used:




Plus Bazzill/White OP, distress ink pad/Pumice Stone, distress ink refillers Pine Needle and Peeled Paint, a doily, an AC-alpha, a vintage flash card, lace, twine, pins, some printed text and a CraftTag from Ranger.
I think that's all.

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful continued Easter!

Man blir ju så lycklig när man ser äldre par, fortfarande lika nykära. Björns mormor & morfar firade också nyss 60 år, och fortfarande lika kära och tokiga :)

Och din LO...?! Helt fantastisk!!!

Underbar layout! Vacker och stämningafull, och med bakgrundshistorien du berättar till den känner man sig rörd - precis så vill jag leva med min man, til the end. amen!
Mycket kompetent och värdig vinnare! :)
