My Sweetheart *The ScrapRoom* and a Giveaway (Out for Publication)

She truly is my sweetheart. You'll never meet a kinder, more compassionate, smart, artistic, wittier girl. We won't discuss her less desirable qualities, like being a procrastinator or that her room looks like a hoarders dream :) Her brother on the other hand, is my sweet tart. Sweet, funny, smart and kind, yet stubborn, opinionated and argumentative. If he were inclined to let me take portraits of him, he would have a Valentines layout too!

This is another amazing kit from The ScrapRoom! Love the variety of papers and embellishments in each kit and the add on embellishment pack makes it even sweeter :)

 It's so much fun now that she is cooperating with my "photo shoots"

 I can't get enough of those beautiful green eyes or that cute little mole ;) 

 So photogenic, love all her expressions.

 This vellum quote was perfect for this layout but got lost on the light background. A fussy cut heart remedied  that! The craft paper heart stickers are from American Crafts.

Crate Paper patterned paper. The buttons are Studio G, I think I found them at Walmart.

 American Crafts craft paper die cut frame, just slid the top portion behind the photo.

Title from the Jasmine Cricut cartridge. Cut multiple times and layered to create a chipboard feel.  

This layout was created using a Creating Keepsakes sketch found under the submissions tab on their website. Had good intentions to submit but ran out of time :) Now that I look at this layout from a distance I feel like it would be improved by changing the 2 smaller photos to one larger photo. What do you think?

Now for the giveaway! How would you like to win an individual layout kit from The ScrapRoom? Just visit The ScrapRoom website and tell me which individual layout kit you like best and I will choose a randomly selected winner on February 14th! Be sure to leave a way for me to track you down in your comment :)

Love this layout--the stitching, the title, and pics are so great! She is a doll!

oops, forgot this--I like the Aug 2012 and Dec 2011 double shots...I think that's the individual layout kit. The embellishment kits are awesome too!

Terrific layout. She's a beautiful young lady and I love how you incorporated so many of different poses into one 2-pager. I am trying to do more of those to get stuff "done." :)

What an adorable layout! I love the colors and the cute little heart diecuts. I love the Echo Park Happy Days layout kit (I think that's a double shot) and also the MME Follow Your Heart "Be Amazing" kit. Thanks for the giveaway!

You knocked this one out of the park. The pictures and papers complement each other so well!

I agree with what the others said about the layout -- very well done. And I like how you found and used those Studio G buttons. I often see those items, pick them up and then put them back on the shelf. You've given me ideas!
Your daughter is stunning! You're a lucky mama. ;)
