Hello Lovely



I just loved this candid photo I took of my granddaughter Abby, last month when we were visiting the family in the Midwest. So when I saw the first Make It Monday sketch for April at The Memory Nest, I got the bright idea to do something totally out of the box.  Here is the sketch:


Instead of using the two square boxes for my photos, I decided to use an enlargement to the right of the squares and add embellishments where the squares are.  I really like how it turned out.  I did not use one manufacturer exclusively either on this page which is very unusual for me.  I fussy cuts some elements from DCWV Photo Stack and I used Doodlebug papers and embellishments.  The white foam glittery hearts and title are from my brand new Pink Paislee Citrus Bliss. The subtitle is a stamp I believe from American Crafts/Studio Calico that I heat embossed.  The "TODAY" is a Bella Blvd scrap that has been laying on my desk for weeks.

In addition to the sketch challenge at The Memory Nest, I am also entering this layout into Clique Kits April Challenge -- Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I hope to be back in a day or so with another project to share.
