Love Matters

For last months e2c challenge, which was to scraplift a layout or be inspired by a layout.I was inspired by this one by Armance at 2 peas in a bucket.
Mine does have text covering the page but as I scanned it and there was a bit of dimension on the page it hasnt showed up well.The song I have used is 'Nothing else matters' by Metallica.I am not a huge fan of metallica but my eldest Nick is, so I am familiar with their music, sometimes in a household of teens you dont have a choice.
This song is quite special to me at the moment, as a little while ago metallica announced they would be touring australia, so I planned to try to get tickets.I actually wondered if wes [our nephew] would try to go to metallica, as wes loved playing guitar and I think he was pretty good too, he had taught himself guitar, and was a often part of a band.Of course then wes died, but this song was played at his funeral.A very emotional song at a funeral, as the lyrics "Nothing else matters', really do mean a lot!
So this LO is of my 3 boys, because obviously theyre what I love most in this whole wide world.[oh and my husband too of course].
And I did eventually get tickets to metallica, and like I say while Im not a massive fan, I really want to do things with my kids while theyre still around [meaning theyre getting older and will one day be leaving home], and also Karen D, assures me they are awesome in concert, and I reckon I can take her word for it, because shes a bit of a rock chick, and has been to a few concerts!!
oh and I have straightened up the L on the love too.

........OOPS I did mean to say thank you to sandra for a lot of the red bits and pices on this.A little while ago for my birthday sandra gave me a gorgeous little decorated tin choc full of goodies, all in my favourite colors, red, black and white!So yesterday I got my tin out and played....yummy stuff, thank you sandra, and perfect for this page!!
