Heart 2 Heart ~ Happy Times

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

This week our challenge is HAPPY TIMES! For me happy times are crafting and in particular scrapbooking even though I am over 4 years behind.  Another happy time for me is getting to spend time with my son.  So today I have a layout that I crated for one of our days spent together from four years ago.  It is sort of interesting that my last design team entry was also a layout that I created of this same location.  This layout is from our first trip to the Sunflower Farm.

For this layout I used the Make It From Your Heart Volume 3 ~ Pattern 25.  I made it a 8 photo page by using (2) 3 x 4 photos instead of a third 4 x 6 photo.  I used the I Heart Us paper pack to create my layout. I used the Mint cardstock as my base.

I used my Cricut to cut the sunflower and the the title.  I used Velum to stamp the I so totally love you which is from this April’s Stamp of the Month ~ Love So Sweet. I used white embossing powder and my versamark stamp pad. I also stamped a few of the butterflies for the Love So Sweet stamp set using Bluebird, Canary and Lagoon inks. I also used the Stitched Heart Thin Cuts.

I decided to add one of the Paper Pals to my layout.  I did shorten his legs so he looked more like a child.  I wanted to mirror the striped shirt my son was wearing so I actually used the shirt from the Paper Pal Gal stamp set but the shorts and shoes are from the Paper Pal Boy stamp set. I could not resist adding the cute dump truck with is from the Crusin’ to Adventure stamp set. I also used some of the stickers from I Heart Us Complements.

Now it is your time to give it a try and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until April 30th to participate in this challenge. We love to see your inspirations!!

Happy Crafting!
