Waiting - CSI DT challenge 160

Hello Scrappy friends.  
Today I’m sharing a page for CSI challenge 160.
There is a bonus sketch from Em Stafrace.
To see what the DT and guest designers have created
for your inspiration.
Do you like using a monochromatic palette?
Then grab your forensic kits and lets get sleuthing.
The photos were taken in January in Phuket
at our youngest Son's wedding.
I followed the sketch almost exactly, 
but it's fine to rotate, or flip it, if it fits your photos better.
Travel elements - the venue and the stamp
Textured paper - the tag
Frame - the small photo
Metal -the heart

I chose to journal about a trip; travelling to another country and also the start of a journey as Husband and Wife. 

I used the words by Kahlil Gibran on marriage on the background and wrote a personal message on the tag.

Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. 

Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.
