First for me.


I can't tell you all how excited I am. I actually completed a layout that used a bigger photo than my traditional 4x6 or smaller! I know crazy hun? I have been scrapping for 10 years and have NEVER done a layout with a big photo! I have to say that I was scared out of my mind!
Here is what the moment was like.
I got all the "ingredents" together for the layout, took a deep breath then stared at the photo like it was going to bite me. My DH said to me "what are you scared of it is just a scrapbook page!" WHAT! Just a scrapbook page, has he lost his mind! that is crazy. Just a scrapbook page!

So taking half of his advise I closed my eyes took a deep breath and here you go! I am so happy with it! I love the way the black and white photo looks.

I even got to use some of my new Dew drops. They added the perfict touch to the heart.

So I guess the moral of my weekend is this:

Take a chance you might not know what you will come out with. ( or only take 1/2 of what my husband says and run with it!)


  1. Hurray for you! This is a great lo and I love the dewdrops. It is a subtle message with the photo telling the story - as it should!

  2. Love that photo and layout T.

    It is good to listen to our DH's once in a while. :)
