Love At First Sight

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I hope your day is full of love, friends and family. After all aren't those some of the best things in life?
Today was the perfect day to share this layout with you. It depicts the love my Emily has for animals, and her attachment to one of our family member's dog. I made it using the February Designer Kit from The Paper Niche. There is a mix of paper collections on this layout, and considering I whipped this puppy up in very little time due to deadlines, and how life busy can get, plus the fact I had NO mojo at the time, I think it turned out kind a cute after all.
I used my Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays to color the mulberry paper flower, as well as the super bold Pink Paislee wooden letters that were included in the kit. For the flower I used my Starburst in the Rudolph's Nose Red, and for the letters I used my Starburst in the Tiffany's Blue. As always, I'm always pleased with the amount of shimmer my Starbursts leave on my projects.
The cute heart pins are Maya Road, and the bling is from Eva creative. I fuzzy cut the heart rows and the banners from some of the design paper, just to add more color to the page.
For the first time in a while, I included journaling in my own handwriting. I mostly refrain from that because I don't have the neatest penmanship, but It's good to include it sometimes, because it's part of the memory...when my daughter looks back at this when I'm gone, she'll see my handwriting there, not just something I typed on my computer. Just because of that, I'll use it from time to time...for the most part though, expect computer font on my layouts lol.
I hope you enjoyed today's project and have a great Valentine's!

  13. Lovely layout Sharon. I agree with you about computer journaling. I do the same because I feel like it gives it a more professional appearance because I didnt learn penmanship well in school. I will like you occasionaly do some handwritten journaling though. Thanks for sharing!!

  27. Very cute layout and an adorable little punkin'! This reminded me of the way I felt about my new dog the first time I saw her. She had been dumped on the side of the road in the snow in a rural area. :( When we saw her by the side of the road she was wet and cold and desperate but it was definitely love at first sight for me.
    Love the effect of the shimmery sprays on the flower and letters!
