Curtis Part Trois!

Here is the third page for Curtis's girlfriends xmas present. 

I used embellishments, that unfortunately to me cannot seem to find again, Tim Holtz Flourishes, game pieces, and spellbinders for this page.  The game pieces are the where Curtis' and Angie names are.  I layered them with purple paper, embossed with flourishes, gold leafed the edges and their names and added a fun corner accent.  I used Labels 7 to create a distressed book at the bottom.  Inside is the very special story from this trip.  This way they could still put the page in view of people without everyone seeing what was inside.  The key on the book is a symbol from their trip as they were in BC for a wedding and keys with people's names were on them to seat people. He didn't have the original so I got my own key.  The flourish was painted and then added some microbeads for some texture.  And the coolest part of this page is the background picture.  That is actually a picture he took while they were on their trip.  I enlarged it and voila! It's the perfect background. 

Thanks for stopping in and checking out this page.
