I can't believe that Valentine's was just this past Tuesday and I've already finished three layouts from our Homeschoolers Valentine's Day party! But before I get too excited, I have to remember those photos I still have un-scrapped from Easter 2011!! :) I worked on this layout for two challenges: 1. Workout #62-XOXO at ScrapFIT and, 2. the Friday Sketch Challenge at Bo Bunny. I have had some of the Bo Bunny Valentine's papers in my stash forever and then I received a few more papers and some embellies from my LSS for my DT assignment. Well they went along perfectly for this challenge! And the challenge at ScrapFIT was to add some "X's" and "O's" to your layout.
The sketch for the Bo Bunny challenge was created by Allison Davis of Sketch Support, who just so happened to select little ole me as one of her DT members this year!! :) I kept the basic design from Allison's sketch, but I moved the title into the journaling area. I stuck with the two 3.5x5 photos, but skewed them a little, instead of having them straight side by side. I did A LOT of fussy cutting from the Bo Bunny papers. The scroll work, bird cages, birds, larger hearts, and smaller hearts that spell the word love, were all cut from the papers. I cut the "X" "O" border using SCAL and welded each letter together. Then I used a Prima acrylic stamp and some white acrylic paint to stamp a small text across the black cardstock. I finished it off, by stitching some pink embroidery floss through the "X's".
The funny thing about both of these photos, is that my daughter had a mouth full of candy in each one!! They wanted to open and eat everything that they received from their friends as it was given to them. Needless to say, they were high on sugar most of the day!! :)
