I often get drawn into using papers and flowers, and other products that are feminine and call for pictures of girls. If I took a tally of my layouts, I would see 70% of my daughter Sophie.Last year, and this year, I will continue to remind myself to document my husband and boys in my pages more often. I want them to feel loved, and know what it is I am thankful for, and how they change and improve my life.
We are coming up to 10 years of marriage! It amazes me. I don't tell him enough, but I am so lucky to know him and feel so blessed to have a husband like Mark.
I paper pieced the heart, the rainbow piece for inside.
I stamped this sentiment in some white space that NEEDED SOMETHING. I always find stamps are a good fall back when you feel something is needed to fill some space. And you know what, Mark and I had that immediate connection. Right from the start, it felt like we knew each other already. It was just so easy and comfortable and lovely.
Be mindful of your color palette. I tried to stick to 4 colors (red, light blue, yellow, and pink). It makes for a more cohesive layout and it will look like everything belongs. Imagine if I threw something green in there. Where would your eye go?
Do you know about the Hip Hop Sketches? If you play along, you can win some stamps! I'm thinking that people just don't know where to find these challenges and where to upload.
