Hi everyone!  This is a layout I created for Pion Design using their beautiful new collection, From My Heart II.  I love that this collection has the traditional red 'love' papers and that it has non-traditional 'love' papers as well.  I fell in love with these delicate colors as soon as I saw them!

This is a layout of me and my hubby.  I dedicated this layout to him and it's about how he has changed me (in a good way LOL).

I used a sketch by the amazing Lydell Quin.  Love her inspirational sketches!
 This is my Romantique Rose flower.  You can find the tutorial HERE.  I improvised by adding a few tulle layers in between (thanks to my friend, Mistra).
 These are hearts that were cut by hand.  I glued them down and stitched a border around them to add texture.
 I saw this quote on a stamp at a craft store.  It's from an Eskimo love song.  I think it's so sweet.  :o)
 The bubble wrap is one of Donna Salazar's new stamps by Art Gone Wild.  I stamped the image using Jasmine Mix'd Media Inx and then embossed it with Jasmine Mix'd Media Embossing Powder.
 In the center of this hand-stitched heart, I applied Glass Beads Gel to add interest and a beautiful texture.
 This Cherry Blossom chippie (DA0640) is made by The Dusty Attic.  I inked it with spray ink by Lindy's Stamp Gang and painted embossed the flowers.

The chipboard trim (Fancy Trim #1 DA0433) was painted, inked and decorated with bling.

I hope you enjoyed my layout.  Thanks for visiting!
