This is What Life Looks Like

Sometimes you see a layout and an idea jumps into your head - well that's what happens to me and that's exactly what happened when I saw this layout

weekly challenge: scrapbook with hearts @ // layout by Heather Leopard

 on (click on layout above to go to blog post) I was inspired to make a page using hearts that look like they are 'flying off the page'.

I used my Silhouette to cut an oversized title and the hearts (quicker than hand cutting and used the Silhouette to cut a perforated line down the centre of each one much quicker to assemble accurately).

The layout came together very quickly after that.  I used papers from Kaisercraft's  True Love collection.  

                                           My Love                                       

    My Darling

                                        My Baby                                         

I also used a favourite family photo which is typical of one of our Sunday afternoon walks.  Love how Josh now joins in with our silly antics.  I love this photo so much that this is the second time I have used it on a page this month and it has featured on other layouts too.

I am going to put it into a box frame as I don't want the hearts to be squashed down by a page protector.

Reason to be cheerful

We are lucky enough to have Josh in our family and he perfectly compliments Gracia's wacky, geeky personality.

Oh thats beautiful, love the 3d hearts & a great way to use heavily patterned papers - something I have problems with.
