Happy Scrapy Wednesday, everyone! I hope you're having a fantastic day on this last day of July. Today I have a pretty layout to share with you!
Last week, my friend Patty who is a wonderful photographer took some gorgeous photos of my kids and Duffy. She was sweet enough to give me all of the photos to scrap and I couldn't be more happy! She's the best! So, today I have the first of the series of photos that she took. I really wanted to create a clean, crisp, bright layout that captured the beauty of my kids and the location that is just down the road from my house.
I love the yellows, blues and and greens in Lily Bee's Sweet Shoppe collection and thought they would be perfect for this layout!
I rarely break out the needle and thread to hand stitch, but I really wanted to keep the simple look going on this layout. To make the heart shape, I cut out a large heart with my cricut and then traced around it with my paper piercer to create the pattern for the stitching.
The center of the large flower is a wooden button that is part of the Sweet Shoppe Collection. The yellow pearls are actually regular pear accents that I quickly colored with a Copic Marker! I also colored the "MY" in the title with the same marker! Copics make it SO easy to have perfectly matching accents in a matter of seconds! Here's a closeup of one of the flowers so you can see the center.
