You Are My Anchor

My husband is an amazing person!  I know...we all say that about our spouse - after all, if they weren't we wouldn't be with them, right?  So what makes him wonderful?  He puts up with me!  He is truly the yin to my yang in that I am a very hyper Type A perfectionist whereas he is laid back and just takes life as it comes.  He is my anchor in that he keeps me in place and steady.  Whilst one could interpret an "anchor" as something weighing you down, it is not meant that way in this case by any means.  Or if it did, it is a weight in a positive sense in that when I fly off the handle, he makes a joke that brings me back down since his extreme whit forces me to laugh even though the joke is invariable at my expense.  I love you, hon!

The design for this is based on another great sketch from Brenda Ragsdale at GrandDiva's Creative Corner for the March Sketch & Scrappy Friends Challenge.  I am combining it with Rochelle Spear's This or That challenge to use either polka dots or chevrons - I used both - polka dots in one of the paper layers and chevrons as the bottom border.  And the color scheme and "anchor" theme itself is inspired by the March Fashion challenge at ACOT.  Papers are all from Authentique Glory collection.  The cork letters are from Little Yellow Bicycle; cork anchor is Studio Calico; stickers are a variety of collections from Simple Stories SNAP!

(sorry for the bad lighting - I photographed this at night from my desk - I should have known better!)

Thanks for stopping by!
