My 1st EVER Sketchy Thursday LO...

Hello everyone! It's been a few weeks since my last post, but I wanted to take a moment & share my latest creation. I was inspired to make this page by the March Guest Design Team Member Challenge over on the Sketchy Thursday Blog. It was such a fabulous sketch I just had to do it! Here's the AWEsome sketch we had to work with...



In addition to using the sketch, we were also to use the following on our LO's:

♥ Pink & Green or Red & Turquoise
♥ Hearts
♥ A list about something/someone you love

I decided to work with red & turquoise~absolutely luv this color combo!



I had the BEST time creating this page and I'm happy to announce that this is the 1st LO I've created with photos from our wedding! I am THRILLED at how it turned out and so is the hubby! : ]
I used a combination of pattern papers including My Mind's Eye~background, Jenni Bowlin~red floral, October Afternoon~turquoise doilie pp and some Basic Grey scraps I found that I thought went well with all the others. I used 2 small round doilies behind the large photo and was able to incorporate the small inside of the heart doilie I cut up & used on my "So In Love" LO! I added hidden journaling on it and made a little loop from a strip of red polka-dot ribbon to make it easy to pull out and read.

***I took the pic below before I realized I had originally used the wrong word in my title! My sister actually pointed it out to me. It has since been changed on the LO and in the pic above. I just decided to leave this close-up shot up for now since I have to start getting ready for work soon.*** 


The heart banner was actually easier to make than I thought it would be. I drew different sized hearts on the back of my pp scraps and then folded the paper at the top of the drawn heart. I then cut out the shape minus about an eighth of an inch at the highest parts of the heart so I would have a double sided shape to fold over the twine. I've never tried making a banner before, but definitely plan to use them again now that I know how easy they are to make! : ]

Thanks for stopping by and have a Happy, Scrappy Day!!
