A New Love

Yesterday I shared a layout with you that wasn't my favorite. But today I am sharing a layout with you that I just LOVE! :) It incorporates some of my favorite things...stamping, scraps, chipboard (especially negative chipboard) and BasicGrey! It uses their awesome Little Black Dress collection. I am really enjoying playing with this line. You will see more of it soon.

Here's my layout:


I guess I should have included stitching and journaling on my list of favorites from above.

This layout is about my new love for lighthouses. Here's what the journaling says:

"I don't know how it happened. I used to be one of those people who didn't "get" all the fascination with lighthouses [I live in Colorado after all!] but after our trip to Maine I fell in love with them! They were all so beautiful and peaceful."

I love this particular picture because of all the fog around the lighthouse. It looked like a Thomas Kinkade painting or something. :)

Here are some close up's of my layout:




Those stamps I used are a collaboration between BasicGrey and Hero Arts. I love them! You can find the stamp set I used here.

Hope you have enjoyed my layout today...it's so nice when things turn out the way you want them too. :)

Have a wonderful day!!!

Love it! the stitching really adds to the dimension of the LO. Great job! And yes, we do occasionally make LO's we are not in love with :O)

I LOOOVE the grid look to the chevron pattern! Also using the negative piece of the letters on the title is brilliant!
