I love you with all my ♥

Hello everyone and Happy Valentine's Day!
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I have a sweet layout (I know, I know...a layout!) to share with you on this sweet day!  This layout is way over-due, because the darling baby in the photos is now a darling 8 year old.....

(click on photo to enlarge)

Pretty sweet, huh?
This week, our Design Team over at Peachy Keen Stamps was given some wonderful embellishments from the fabulous folks over at Freckled Fawn to play with!  And I gotta tell you, Peachy Keen and Freckled Fawn make an awesome combination!

* I started with some beautiful background paper and did a bit of stitching in dark brown thread.  I also inked and stitched the edges of all my mats.
* The beautiful baby in the photo is my own darling granddaughter, Emma!
* Ok, I have NEVER used Washi tape (gasp), but after trying this cute Washi from Freckled Fawn, I am hooked!  This one is called Picnic Table Plaid.  I love the way it adds a punch of pattern and color.
* I also used some cute little Arrow Wood Chips to point the way to my cutie pie grandbaby. I added a bit of coarse, crystal glitter to the arrows for a bit of sparkle.

*There is more than one angel on this page!  One of them is, of course, Emma and one happens to be from the Peachy Keen Stamp set PKSC-01 (January 2012).  I colored her with my Copic Markers and paper pieced her dress. She also got a bit of glitter and a pretty bow for her hair.

*On this page I used Spellbinders "Label 17" to create a little pocket and tag to do some journaling. I stamped the sentiment "I love you with all my ♥" on the pocket using the PKSC-01 stamp set.
* I added a punched border (Martha Stewart) to the bottom of my photo mat along with with some pretty crinkle ribbon.  I also added a few of those darling little White Heart Paper Clips from Freckled Fawn around both pages.
* More Washi tape and sweet little hearts finish up this page.

So, don't you agree that Peachy Keen Stamps and Freckled Fawn go together beautifully?  We certainly think so and we have a fun way to show it....
