to love & be loved

This page is based on my Allyscraps sketch from earlier this month.  I love all the new Fancy Pants lines, especially My Family.  I read the title/quote on a fortune cookie that I got in a restaurant at least a year ago. I saved the fortune and had it tucked away in a drawer on an organizer that sits on my scrap table, knowing that I wanted to use it on a page. When I saw this photo that my husband took on Mother's Day, I knew it was perfect!

Check out how I created the circle element:

I cut a circle out of a piece of scrap paper and used the paper as a mask, then stamped with blue chalk ink using the background stamp from the Round & Round anniversary set from Papertrey Ink.  Finally, I outlined the circle with a white gel pen. I love this subtle, custom-background effect!  I also used another PTI background stamp for a little added interest along the bottom edge of the blue paper, also.  The ticket stamp is from an Autumn Leaves set.

Thanks for letting me share!  :)

Debbie: This is so, so good. You used so many different elements and the circle idea was really creative. There is so much I love about this page. The strips of words, the hearts, the colors, the ticket (kind of like the ones Michelle Wooderson has been using). I am so glad you shared this with us. Really great job.
