We had a great One Page sketch to work with this week for Sketch Support! Allison added a large heart shape to the background of the sketch, behind the photo area. Instead of going with a solid-shaped heart, I chose to cut a heart outline on my Expression and then fill in the inside with varying sized circles.
I changed the photo area on this sketch to two photos, instead of three. The pics weren't the greatest because I took them on my phone, while we were in the car, but I changed them over to Sepia and I think that made a big difference. I used the MME paper pack "Love Nest" on this layout. There are some great glittered and textured papers in this pack. I also added a little extra texture to my page by cutting some smaller hearts, embossing them with a wood-grain pattern, and popping them up with pop dots.
