Welcome to another Lasting Memories challenge Sunday!!

This week our challenge is "All you need is love!"
Use the word LOVE on your layout but does NOT have to be Valentine theme (certainly can be if you like though!)

Here is my inspiration layout I made for this challenge. I'm actually going to frame this one because of the 3dimensionality :)

All papers are from the Authentique Miracle baby girl line except for the pink polka dot and pink striped and the photo mats. It came in a prize pack I won over at The Paper Variety, they ordered it for my winning from A Cherry On Top :) I la la looove it! :)

I made my little flags from a circle punch that I cut in half and then strung them on Blossom twine and doodled around the edge.. I "hung" my banner from 2 handmade roses accented on chipboard flourishes.

I will be doing a tutorial on these handmade roses over at Lasting Memories on Valentines day so make sure you come check it out :) It will also be here on my blog the same day, Tuesday, February 14, 2012. I added stickles to the edges of my petals for that sparkle :)

The little footprint circle came from the paper pack by Authentique. I added little pink rhinestones and glitter chipboard flourishes from Recollections

The glittered "Love" is Making memories. (Really hard to capture it's bling on camera ) boo!

I hope you will join us over at Lasting Memories for our "All you need is love" challenge!! :)
Paper Issues - Love
I also used sketch #34 at Frosted Designs

Beautiful layout Michelle! I love that sketch design too:) And the saying "Now I know what Love is" is soooo true. Amazing how the birth of your own child changes your perspective on everything!

Hi Michelle,
First I would like to say thank you for visiting my blog and leave me comment. Second, I've watch your rose tutorial on YouTube and really love it. I've made paper rose before using a similar technique like yours but your tutorial is much simple and I'd like to try it for sure :) Third, I love your LO. Your photos, how you interpret the sketch, colors, everything are stunning! Forth, I'm now following you :)
