Scrapbook Layout: Love You Lots

Hello! Happy Valentine's Day! 

This project isn't really Valentine-y themed, but it is about love! :) I have so many photos of Laura and I. I think it's just a rule that every time we go shopping, we have to take a series of selfies. Sometimes I don't like the thought of re-scrapping basically the same photos, but then again- someday I will be able to look back on all of them and see how we changed from photo to photo! So then I'm ok with it. 

I used the BRAND NEW Crate Paper "Craft Market" line for this page. I actually won it from their CHA giveaways (this is the very first time I've won a whole line from any CHA giveaway that I can remember). It's such a pretty line. Lots of pinks and blues and florals. It just added to the excitement that this line isn't even in stores yet. I feel so trendy. ;) Here's an idea of all the sheer goodness I got in a box this past week:

Awesome, right?! Needless to say I was one happy gal when UPS dropped off the box. You will probably see lots of projects from me with this line. Just warnin' ya.

I also LOVE participating in Scrapbook Circle's sketch challenges, so this is the sketch I used for the layout.

I used lots of little bits and pieces on this page, and I really like the simplicity of the design. I should also add that I painted in some of the words on that gold foil (yes, GOLD FOIL!) paper with the watercolors that matched the color scheme of the collection.

I filled the right 1/4 of the page with journaling just to weigh that side down a little bit more. Plus I got to ramble more in my journaling. 

So there you have it! Another "sister selfie" scrapped! :)

xoxo, Heather
