Keep me in your Heart

Good morning! Today I am sharing a layout that I created using a sketch from Elle's Studio. I kept the basic concept of the sketch, but kind of went off on my own as well.

I used quite a few elements from the Elle's Studio Love You More collection including two stamps and the frame, note card, word snippets, and teal heart. Oh! And their new alphas! I keep forgetting about those. I used papers from the Pebbles and Crate Paper Valentine's lines. I cut the background paper (Amy Tan) with my Silhouette to be able to layer the hearts underneath the paper and then pop some up on top of the paper with pop dots.

The title comes from that little Pooh quote - "If ever there comes a day that we're not together, keep me in your heart and I will stay there forever." I absolutely love it. I love those pink Thickers too -- and they come with HEARTS! Very cool. 

I found some embroidery floss and ripped it all apart to make a cluster underneath one of the Elle's tags and threw some enamel dots in there as well. I still had those Pink Paislee mistable hearts sitting out from my last project so I found a place for it on this layout too! Great way to use up my stash. 

I added another embroidery floss, tag, and enamel dot cluster and outlined the entire page with my black marker, as well as used the neat heart/arrow stamp from Elle's Studio on each side of page. Thanks for looking and I appreciate your comments! 

Here is the sketch:
