I tried so hard to hoard this for the contest but I couldn't stand it - it just didn't feel right!
Anyway, this layout was heavily inspired by Cassie (the techniques), Dagmar (the fantasy scene), and Stacy (the krafty bits)!
Around the sun it just says "you are the sun that lights up my world" over and over. The other journaling: I see the world anew through your eyes, but still the most magnificent thing I see in this beautiful world is you. Down in the corner it says "William - my greatest treasure" because we were searching for the elusive cobalt-blue beach glass (represented by a sequin). I had a lot of fun with this!
