The Tie That Binds Is Love

I am excited to share with you another layout that I found time to create.  I didn't realize how much I missed doing layouts.  This layout is part of the current die cut challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches.  We were to make something using a heart.  I used a Nestabilities heart, which I love.  And I love the pictures on this layout.  They were taken in 2008 at the local fair.  My husband and our granddaughter have a special bond, and I wanted this layout to emphasize that bond.  Here are details about the layout:

Card stock:  Bazzill and American Crafts
Patterned papers:  My Mind's Eye
Black scalloped edge:  Bazzill Just the Edge
Background label: Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge cut using the Fit to Page feature.  I think it ended up cutting at 10 1/2".  I also cut a shadow for this cut.
Frame:  Elegant Edges
Hearts:  Martha Stewart punch and Nestabilities heart dies
The:  Computer generated and punched with a heart punch
Tie & Binds:  Lyrical Letters Cricut cartridge -- welded and cut using Cricut Craft Room
That & Is:  Cuttlebug Olivia font
Love:  Sweethearts Cricut cartridge cut at 1 1/4"
Green scalloped circle border:  Bazzill Just the Edge
Flowers:  I Am Roses, and Recollections
Also, I hid my journaling behind the framed picture, attaching ribbon to the top so it could be pulled out and viewed.

Hope you can join us for this awesome challenge!

Thanks for looking, and for your kind words.  Be inspired!
