L.O.V.E is in the air!

Good Morning Bloggers! It's time again for another fabulous challenge at Creative Accents and this month we're in L.O.V.E! Yup! We want you to create a project with layers, ovals, vintage and embellishments! 


Here's the layout I made for the challenge. I'm really happy with how this turned out :)


I used this cute little vintage tricycle from the graphics fairy. She's got tons of great vintage images, and they're free! woohoo!


I must admit, I had a hard time trying to decide where I was going to use an oval on this layout, but I decided to stamp the word "love" on a piece of MME patterned paper, and put a TH oval fragment over it, and voila! Instant oval embellishment! I made the hearts by stamping my new Hero Arts Heart stamp set 6 times and cut them out and stitched them together. I love how that gives a dimensional look to my layout. It's not always easy to add dimension to boys layouts (unless you want to load them up with flowers...and there's nothing wrong with that, but I'm always on the lookout for other options!)


So there you go! I hope you fall in L.O.V.E. with this challenge and join us! You can go check out the rest of the DT's projects for more inspiration Here.

I'm entering this into a couple other challenges: Sarah Hurley Challenges "Love is all around"
and Scrapbookers Anonymous wants you to use hearts and stitching (at least 3 hearts)
D's Paper Studio is doing a challenge to use a sketch for a layout and I used  this sketch from Handmade by Suzanne

I hope you all have a crafty weekend!!
