I {Heart} You

I just love this picture of my daughter when she was little. She was just about to doze off and I can see the sleepiness in her eyes!!

I knew I wanted to scrap it and use the BoBunny Crazy love papers and embellishments that my Secret Sister over at ACOT sent me in February. When I sat down at my desk and looked at my blog I saw that Lets Capture Our Memories had just posted a new sketch and I think it was perfect for this picture! I cut the bird out from a Sizzix dies that had a branch and flowers but I chopped the flowers off and gave him legs instead! Adding the bird qualifies this for the Friday Challenge at Frosted Designs to use a bird or butterfly on your project. The only thing I'm not crazy for are the title letters....they came with the BoBunny sticker sheet and they just aren't my style I guess.

One day last week at ACOT someone posted a video that Heidi Swapp did saying that "bows are the new flowers" and she gave two quick tutorials on how to make them. I've been thinking about these bows since then and decided to give it a whirl. Talk about EASY PEASY and the dimension looks great. Of course, it looks rather flat on a straight on photo so I tried to take a close up which wasn't so great either as the sun was setting and it was getting to dark. But hopefully you get the idea.

If you would like to see the video yourself click HERE.  That will take you to Northridge Publishing where the original video is posted.
