Love, Me Layout

I have been following Scrapping to the Music for sometime but haven't participated yet. I love their concept, as music plays a HUGE part in my life and memories. When I heard the song for this week I teared up a little knowing exactly what I would do. My husband has been working hard to open a new restaurant and it's been rough on all of us. So making this layout really meant a lot to me. Hopefully it might to him too :) The song is Love Me, by Collin Raye. If you visit their site, not only do they have the song playing but a link to the lyrics as well.

I also wanted to use it for PaperPlay, another one that I have been following but haven't participated in yet. The challenge is: "Read all About it" - I want you to use some form of booktext, for example: vintage booktext, script background stamp, newspaper text.

The purple piece behind the photos has been embossed with the Script folder and my Cuttlebug. I then used white Cat's Eye Ink (I think it's actually liquid chalk?) to go over it just a bit.

The layout is also taken from Scrapsketch #184.
The title is cut from Jasmine. I like it, but then sometimes I don't. I think I might just leave it because I don't know what else to do with it? The paper is American Crafts, I think...I got it from our discount scrapbook store.
I think that's everything! Thanks for looking!
