Celebrating LOVE . . . underwater!

Happy Thursday, my sweet friends!! It's time for another super-de-duper fun challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog! And this week, my cleverly talented friend and DT sistah, Anja, wants us all to . . .

"Celebrate LOVE"

Hmmm . . . which image to choose? So many options . . . well, here's what I came up with . . .
OK . . . so here's the deal . . . I do NOT love to snorkel!! Breathing while my face is submerged in water is terrifying for me. In fact, just sitting here thinking about it is making me hyperventilate! It's not natural to breathe underwater! BUT . . . it just so happens that my husband's daughter and her husband went SCUBA diving a year ago on their honeymoon.

So . . . while I have no intention of celebrating the love of being unable to breathe underwater . . . I wanted to honor the love Jenna and Adam have for one another as they celebrate their 1st Anniversary! Here's a close up . . .
These fabulous images are a couple of Mo Manning's latest creations! Say hello to "Snorkel Girl" and "Snorkel Boy" . . . which I've merged. You can find them HERE  and HERE in Mo's online store!

I decided to make a Crossover Card because they're such fun! Here's a side view . . .
