Follow If Its Groovy

One word should sum up my thoughts on this one by Heather...

I had so much fun making this lo! It is a semi-scraplift of MandaK over at but I had to make it my own you know!!! We had this pic of my hubby and I taken over the Christmas holidays at a family event. I needed a pic of him and I to use on some photo trays (coming soon for your viewing) that I was making for Christmas gifts. So, what better pic to use when I need to do a layout that includes hearts!!!! I love to distress!!! I have never wrinkled the paper like this though and I love the effect!

To wrinkle the paper, I just kind of pushed and folded it around. Then I sprayed it with a little water and dried it with my heat tool, while kind of forming it into place. Then I took fired brick distress ink over the tops of the folds.

I stamped all the little hearts on the pages using black soot distress ink. Didn't care for the way they turned out so I used some red Smooch Spritz to highlight the corners and cover/make the hearts stand out without being overpowering. This was the first time I have used the Smooch Spritz. I am normally a diehard Glimmer Mister, but I really liked it and it does give a different look then GM does!

I played around with the shadowing and highlighting in picassa to make the pic the color I wanted. (Was actually trying to hide the sign behind us with cropping the pic down any further!)

So, what does your heart beat for? A spouse? Your kids? A pet? A hobby? Show us!!!

God Bless, Heather
