Was it too much on my layout? Husband says "no." I am not sure.
My daughter and her husband went to the Pont des Arts Bridge in Paris and placed a lock on the bridge. I am so glad they were given this opportunity before it was removed.
"A love lock or love padlock is a padlock which sweethearts lock to a bridge, fence, gate, or similar public fixture to symbolize their love. Typically the sweethearts' names or initials are inscribed on the padlock, and its key is thrown away to symbolize unbreakable love." Wikipedia.
- I design the layout on paper. I try to remember tips I have received ... like the rule of 3s or setting your focus off center and the best has been "do it the way you love to create."
- Then I lay out the photos and elements.
- Take a photo.
- I walk away awhile to give some time to make sure this is what I want.
- Make adjusts and start.
I started adhering the corrugated cardboard and then the elements. I used glue on those items that went directly on the cardboard. (Thus no removing and resetting.) I mistakenly did not place some of the elements where I had planned...I had to ad lib the rest.

One thing I am sure of: I finally said this was in my heart and here it is.
