SOUS Die Cut Heart Challenge ~ Forever Friends ~

Yeah, it's Friday and you know what that means around here   .. time for another Stuck on U Sketches reveal. This week the Die Cut team is up to bat and I thought I would play along.  Some of you may have seen this layout as I was doing a little double duty on this one.

I sure wish that the color of this page showed up a bit more "true." It is a very pale olive green color and is one of the gorgeous Riddersholm Bello Pastello papers sold at the Flying Unicorn Store. Riddersholm is a Danish company and Flying Unicorn is currently the only USA store to carry them.
I wanted to try a monochromatic theme on this one .. harder than you think! So everything is a shade of green with a small bit of white mixed in.

I've done lots of layering on this piece and added in 3, no 4, doilies. Had fun with my Prima stamp along the top and bottom of the layout. The two Dusty Attic pieces were treated with Shabby Shutters Crackle paint, as well as the matching Stickles and then adorned with a few matching flat-backed pearls. Be sure and click on the photo to get a closer look!

I got busy with the Cricut this time and created the hearts and my title. That was kind of fun. I split my title and put part of it vertically and the other half horizontally.

My floral embellishments are a mix of Prima, Petaloo, Recollections and a few leftovers from a past Swirlydoos kit. This is one page that is seriously sooo thick that even I am not going to try putting it in an album. My dgd Maddie (who is in the photo) has requested it ... and she has lots more room at her house than I do. Problem solved!

Please let me know if you have any questions and I'll be happy to get back to you! We hope that you will have the opportunity to take on the "Heart" challenge. Just remember that we are asking for it to be a new project as of 9-23-11.

Thanks for coming by! Have a fantastic weekend!
