I am up on the Imaginisce blog today, sharing my page as part of the IM DT. This layout was created for our "Social Media" themed week!
Since my youngest son and I are currently residing about 3 hours away from my husband, we use social media a lot to stay connected. We call and text each other several times a day, but my youngest is at school all day long so we have to work a little harder to keep him connected with his dad. Skyping during dinner, as often as possible, is an easy way for them to have time together. I am so grateful that we live in a time that it is super easy for us all to have daily contact!
One night while we were having dinner and skyping, I snapped a photo as I knew that this would be something that I would ant to document. And as it turns out it is perfect for this weeks theme! The photo is a little dark as it was taken during the winter months when it is dark before 5pm, but the memory is still important.
I began my page by deciding on a title, which was a little tricky for me at first, but then it hit me and I ran with it!
Because my title had the word "love" in it I decided to use this cut file that I created, and had lots of fun filling in the heart with colourful patterns from the Par-r-rty Me Hearty collection.
Because I was so excited about my title, I worked on that next. Which is a little unusual for me.
I layered my photo over some vellum and a die cut and cut apart tag from the same collection. Then I added some simple embellishing.
I decided to go bold with my journaling and use it as a main part of my design, then I embellished around it as well.
A few strips of pattern along the bottom of my page finishes it off!
