She did say yes, but which she are we talking about? Luckily, both of them said yes! When Lucy's daddy proposed to Katie, Lucy was excited about the wedding and all; however, taking engagement pictures was getting a little boring. That's when her daddy snatched her up and she became the center of the attention again......and what little girl doesn't like that? ; ) I must say, she's sort of been the center of our world since we met her!
This LO was inspired by several challenges. One of them called for a plaid. Ok, I love plaids,,,,,,but,,,,hmmm........I can't seem to find one that matches the colors I want to use for my other challenge. Ok, what's that saying, "Necessity is the mother of invention" or in my case creativity.
I started with a piece of White Daisy CS and went to town creating a sort of plaid pattern using black lines, and stamped rows of arrows from This Moment and the the border from Assorted Edges. This gave me a plaid background for my Cranberry heart.
My heart was cut from Artbooking and creates the background for my pic. The second heart was cut and embossed with the Chevron embossing folder. I embellished it with black carpet thread and a button from the Mini-Medley Black collection.
The flowers are cut from Art Philosophy; the heart borders and XO's are from Artbooking. The little hearts along the side are from those cuts.....well, except for the little red heart. That was just sitting on the desk crying out to be used on this LO. hahaha
I finished embellishing with Epoxy Bubbles and Flaxen Extra Thick Twine. I also added a tiny bit of Arrow Washi Tape. I stamped the words irresistible and wonderful from You're the Bomb stamp set. The purchase of that stamp set provides a donation to Operation Smile!
My colors include: Cranberry, Archival Black, Daisy White, Flaxen and Kraft.
My LO is off to these challenges:
Color My Heart: Cranberry, Flaxen, Kraft, Daisy White, Black
Heart 2 Heart: Love the CTMH Way -- Love the CTMH Cartridges!
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge: Valentine's Day
Pile It On: Use a bow
Stuck on U Sketches: Heart shape, Locket and/or Key
123 Get Scrappy: I chose the diagonal row: Plaid, Red Background and Hearts
