U Complete Me-SOUS

I absolutely love Fridays!!  
SOUS is having its weekly reveal today and here is my take on this weeks sketch challenge. 

These photos are of my husband Mike and they were taken back in 1994 while we were visiting St.Augustine, Florida with my mother-in-law..
We had such a nice time walking around the old city and seeing all of the wonderful sites..
When I designed this layout, I really wanted to focus on my husband.  I don't have many photos of him cause were always taking photos of our kids.. hope that's normal..LOL

So, aaaaaaanyway...
Here is this weeks sketch.. :O)
 I changed some of the sketch only cause of my own design.. I didn't have two small photos, so I left the second one out and I added the large photo to the right of the layout instead of placing it on the left.
Then, I'm not real big on journaling so I add some memory tags and some decorations to the bottom right hand corner.. 
You can see all of them here:
The tags read: HOPE, LOVE and ADMIRE

I struggled a bit with a title for this layout.. I once again wanted it to reflect my feelings for my husband and I also wanted it to represent the three tags I made of him.. so, I finally thought that "U Complete Me!" was exactly how I felt..
But we all know that it is I that completes him...LOL
We'll just keep that between us girls... :O)
Here are the two photos I found for this layout.. In the big photo, my husband is standing in front of the oldest school building in Florida (don't ask how old, I can't remember)..LOL
and then the small one is him standing behind my mother-in-law's car all packed up and ready to head for home...Yes, I repeat  its my mother-in-laws car...LOL
