So Much Love

I created this page for a color challenge where we needed to use red, lime green, orange, and black. I just love this photo of the girls with Princess. Yes, we're crazy about our dog! It's really fantastic to see the girls with Princess. They love her so much, and it just warms my heart to see them play and spend time with her!


I used gorgeous My Mind's Eye papers that are in a huge slab that I got at Hobby Lobby a while ago. I love my MME slabs! I was going for a very clean and simple look, so I added strips of each of the patterned papers on one side of the black cardstock page. My youngest, Jessica, later told me that the different length strips remind her of the bars indicating cell phone coverage that you see in some commercials! Not quite what I was going for, but a very humorous and somewhat accurate observation! Anyway, I left lots of negative space, and above the photo, I adhered a Prima, and for the flower center, I used a Scenic Route chipboard circle that says "so much love". Under the photo, I used the same three colors of my patterned paper, and I adhered an orange, lime green, and red glitter Making Memories brad trio. I love the simplicity of this page, because I think it really showcases the photo.

Well, I'm going to try to get to at least one garage sale today. I LOVE garage sales! I'll let you know if I find anything exciting! It's been chilly the last couple of days, but I have to admit, I love it! I'm sad to say that the Cubs lost last night, but hopefully they WIN tonight. I hope you have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!
