Love is All You Need

Hannah loves Brown Dog. He's part of what Blake got me for Valentine's Day. I find him in different places everyday when I get home from school. She totes him around everywhere.

I used a the February Challenge Template by Sir Scrapalot at myscrapshop. com. I adjusted it a little by making the photo block larger and changing out the font. The kit I used is also by Sir Scrapalot and it’s called You Light Up My Life. I used CK Good Day font.

My journaling reads:

Hannah loves the big brown dog Blake got me for Valentine’s Day

8 Facts about ME in 2008

I forgot to share this one when I made it earlier this year so I'm posting it now. I'm tring really hard to have a more positive attitude and I think this layout reflects that.

I adapted a Resolutions template by Kellie Mize for this layout. The kits used are Velvet Strawberries by Creative Confusion and the Good Times Collaboration Kit at Little Dreamer Designs. The fonts used are 2 Peas Miss Happy and 2 Peas Chatter.

Valentine's Day mini book

I made this little book for Blake for V-day. It was a last minute idea and I worried about getting done and it looking ok since I didn't spend a lot of time on it. Another worry was whether he would like it, whether he thought it was too soon for so personal a gift, whether he would run screaming away...

Thankfully he loved it. He told me it meant a lot to him. He did all the reading that night before he went to bed and sent me the sweetest email. It was a keeper. It was such a relief that the gift was well accepted and loved.

It was my first hybrid project. Still a bit more digital than traditional but I like how it turned out. The book I used was an old purchase. I'm not sure who the manufacturer was, just that I got it at Hobby Lobby during the years I worked there. It was perfect for this. The title on the front is stickers. I covered the inside covers with papers by Fancy Pants. They were perfect with the digital items I used for the pages. I replaced the manila colored pages with black cardstock and then attached the 4 X 6 printed layouts on them. The ribbons are by Offray.

Here is a sample of what the pages looked like attached to the black background.

I used Brag template # 4 by Teriann Hanks, Kraft Stash Alphas by Trish Jones, Names kit by Digitreats, A Better Me, Seeing Stars and Pieces of My Heart papers by Weeds and Wildflowers. The fonts used are CK Peace Out and Template.

And now a closer look at just the layout.

The next page

I used Brag template # 4 by Teriann Hanks, papers from A Better Me and Loving You, Be Bold wordstrip from Being Me elements from Weeds and Wildflowers, heart element from How Lovely kit by Heidi Larsen, and Sweetness Ledger add-on by Meredith Fenwick. The font used is Bradley Hand.

page 3

I used papers from the Celebrating Color freebie and Live Life wordstrip from Being Me elements from Weeds and Wildflowers, Valentine Stamp from Nancie Rowe Janitz, Sweet Heart element by Krystal Hartley, and Sweetness Ledger add-on by Meredith Fenwick. The font used is MA Sexy.

Page 4

I adapted another Brag Template (5) by Teriann Hanks for this one. I just removed the element on the lower left and replaced it with the hearts. The Papers are from Loving You by Weeds and Wildflowers and the heart element is by Heart Attack from Krystal Hartley. The Date Stamp is also from Teriann Hanks.

5 - This one is a digi vday card that I used.

I used Be My Valentine quick page by Katie Pertiet.

and 6

For this layout I adapted a template by Terianne Hanks from Brag Templates # 6. I also used papers from Sweetest Thing paper pack by Krystal Hartley, SWAK Glitter Red and Love Dots # 2 by Katie Pertiet. The font used is LD Coffee House.

and the last page so far is a journaling page

I used paper from A Better Me by Weeds and Wildflowers, Artful Antiquities Blank Label Stickers by Christine Honsinger and LD Delightful font.

A new layout

So far I haven't been a great scrapper or blogger in 2008. We were out of school today because of freezing rain so I'm trying to get myself caught up a little bit here.

This layout is about the new man in my life. We met in December and he's very special to me. This is the first layout I've done about us.

I used Speed Byte # 96 by Pattie Knox, Valentine Memories kit by Teriann Hanks, Heart Attack by Krystal Hartley, and Decoupaged Photo Frames #4 by Katie Pertiet. The font I used is 2Peas Well Behaved.

The journaling reads: Until I met you I did not realize how much I missed having someone to kiss.
