Je Vous Aime

Thursday, February 20, 2014

I finished all my work early today and treated myself to some scrap time. It's once to be able to spend some time scrapping, instead of cramming the scrap time into my day.
Lots of inspiration went into this page today.
I began with a sketch from Scrap Our Stash, including heart patterned paper, pre-made heart and arrow embellishments.  I'm also playing along in an online crop at MyScraps & More. One of the challenges is to use a foreign phrase on your page. That ties into today's LOAD day 20 prompt is to include a quote or saying from a random source.

Combining all three challenges helped the decision making process for me.   I saw the photo and decided on the title right away. "I love you my children".  Not original, but yes random.  My son is learning Spanish this year. It is bringing so many memories back to me from when I learned French.  He will say something in Spanish and I will answer in French.  

I didn't stray from the sketch very much. The hearts worked for the rest of the theme of the page. I stuck with neutrals for the most part because of the colors and pattern in the photo. The pre-made heart is under the title. It was a banner, that I broke the toothpick off of. The arrow is pointing to the #2 embellishment.

I'm more than happy with this. Stop by again tomorrow when I have more LOAD (and possibly other) pages to share.
