I Do It For You...

Thanks everyone for all of your wonderful comments on my new blog design and my layouts. I really appreciate it!

I did a fun layout today that I did following a challenge at Elle's Studio. I really love Elle's Studio and need to play along with their challenges more often. For this challenge, all I needed to do was scraplift one of the design team's layouts and use Elle's Studio product.

I used the new Glitz Madly in Love collection (can't get enough of it) and 4 Elle's Studio tags. Three of them are from their latest collection, You and Me and the "this moment" tag is one I've had in my stash for quite some time.


The photos are of my husband and I during our first dance. I love them. The title is based on our first dance song, which was "Everything I Do, I Do It For You" by Bryan Adams. When we got engaged I told Ryan that he could choose the song for our first dance and after a few days, this is what he told me he wanted. I giggled a little because it is kind of a cheesy love song, but it really meant a lot to me because he picked it out . :)


Here is a close up of two of the Elle's Studio tags as well as an American Crafts heart clip that I picked up at Target! 


Lately I have really enjoyed hand stitching on my layouts! I love how the big heart looks in the background. 


And of course.. I had to add some enamel dots! :) And here is the layout that I scraplifted from Elle's Studio design team member Sarah Webb.

I just love your big heart!! and I love that you journaled around the heart :) You are a girl after my...heart! lol One of my favorite things to do is journal around my shapes because I don't always want to see the journaling before I see everything else! It looks awesome!
