The challenge this month at the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog (LTSCB) is Love is... I took some super cute photos of my granddaughters and I knew I needed to use them for this challenge theme. I love how silly they were being & giving kissy faces. Although the photo quality of the main photo is horrible, I still wanted to use it to honor the memory.
I pulled out my Valentine's/heart stamps to make a cute customized patterned paper for the base of this layout. I used a bunch of old embellishments too. I didn't have an exact plan in mind, but I love the way it turned out! Be sure to check out the video for some tips & tricks.
Paper Dimensions: Stamped white paper 11x11; Smack (black) paper 5x10.5; and white w/black polka dots 5.5x9.5
