My submission for ARTastic challenge blog!

This is my submission for ARTastic challenge blog. This month we have to take our inspiration from this painted postcard by Alphonso Muscha called 'Reverie'

Reverie - Criteria for March....

ARTastic Diva Demand... for an extra 6 bonus points

1. Use a cut out figurine from a photo = 1 pt

2. Make a halo using flowers around the figurines head = 2pts

3. Use Art Nouveau style/designs on your layout = 3 pts

Here is my take:

The Best is yet to Be

Here is my submission for The 'Reverie' piece. Photo taken at my wedding, someone snapped this photo with my mum walking past me. I think I was about to say something to her........

The title comes from the poem in the left hand corner, the poem says:

The Best Is Yet To Be

On your joyful wedding day,
You begin a brand new life.
Friends and family give their gifts
To joyful husband, blissful wife.

But the greatest gift you'll ever get,
A gift from heaven above,
Is love forever, ending never,
Everlasting love.

You'll share life's joy and pleasure;
You'll have plenty of that, it's true.
But love is the real treasure
For your new spouse and you.

And if life hands you challenges,
As it does to one and all,
Your love will hold you steady
And never let you fall.

Your wedding day is full of joy;
Tomorrow you cannot see.
But one thing's sure for the two of you:
The best is yet to be.
