"Happy Belated Valentines Day"

My Minds Eye had a layout contest using a sketch. If you have never tried to do your own take on someone elses sketch it can be really challenging. I try very hard to use just the product that is by that manufacturer to challenge myself. The pictures are of my youngest grandchildren and I thought they would be the perfect pictures for the color plalette that the paper offered. I fussy cut the flowers out of the one of the sheets of paper and add Tim Holtz Rock Candy to give the flowers a distressed look plus it makes them firm and easier to work with. I placed brads and buttons in the center of them for added detail. If you have a sewing machine try sewing on your pages; I did around the rose and dot 6 x 8 piece of paper and if you don't try sewing by hand using a paper piercer and some embroidery floss. It is so easy to do and gives great dimension to your projects.

If you can believe it I also fussy cut the letters "LOVE" from one of the sheets of paper. I love fussy cutting but remember you need a really good pair of scissors. I like the CutterBee scissors- my favorite. Of course a page isn't complete without a little bling, so I add some of Valentine Crafts Glitter Heart Brads and some stick pins from Making Memories for add accents.
I hope you enjoy looking at my creation and try doing your own redition of this layout
