First up: "Me & You." Even thought this photo of my husband and me is out of focus, I love the candid nature of it and that we are both smiling and looking happy. Sometimes those imperfect photos make great layouts! This one uses some of the new Fancy Pants "Be Loved" collection. I really was drawn to the water color feel and soft palette. So many little elements are available with this collection, too. I altered my background sheet by drawing a large heart, sewing the outline with pink American Crafts twine, and then adding some paint and pink chalk to the inside. I also added twine in other places - the tags and several cross stitches on the left side. The "me & you" sentiment was cut with my Cricut - Graphically Speaking is an old cartridge, but still one of my faves. The pink glitter border strip is from Teresa Collins.
I picked up some new My Minds Eye yesterday at Scrapdoodles and had a little fun. I also recently added a couple of new cartridges to my collection, so wanted to use them right away, too. The beautiful background sheet is from MME's Now & Then, "Dorothy" collection. The heart doily (LOVE) was cut with my new Edge to Edge Cricut cartridge. The title is also from a new cart - Small Talk Frames and Tags. The rest of the elements are MME. I'm really loving the phrases and mini letters available with this collection.
Thanks for visiting! I hope you have a LOVE-ly day!
