Your Smiles Warm My Heart

I just finished up this layout this evening.  I'm not pleased with the way it photographed.   It is way to dark inside, I really needed some natural lighting.  I based this layout on the current challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches. Their current sketch was designed exclusively for SOUS by the very talented Liz Qualman.  This layout features both of my kids from a long time ago.  To this day, I still smile when I look at these adorable pictures of them.  Jeffrey, with his quirky, funny "ham it up" smile, and Sara with her sweet innocent smile.


All of the paper is from the K and Company Ka Zoo paper pad.  I used the Martha Stewart Loop border bunch around the large circle, and added some tiny pink rick rack.  I added some red stickles to the hearts in the centers of the flowers and some purple stickles to the large purple heart, all of which were cut from the paper pack.    I used the following Cricut cartridges, George for the large circle and the picture frames and Doodletype  for the title.

I LOVE this! This is SO happy and colorful that I just want to look at it over and over!
I think the colors here (obviously the design too) but the colors of this are stunning together..so much to see w/o anything being overwhelming to the eye.
love the popping, the hearts and different color photo frames, the flowers and...well everything!
