How Cute Are You?! for a Lasting Memories Scrapbook Layout Challenge

Good Afternoon you all :) I hope this Sunday has been a good day for you so far. I was up way to late scrapping this layout and then the old PC was being sluggish so I only got the layout up on the LM site and decided to blog it today. Yep April is the month that I'm looking at to get me a new laptop! So over this old PC but it works for what I need at the moment, just way to slow!
So this Month's challenge is being Hosted by Michele and here theme is:
LM 329 - Use your STUFF - Use a product that starts with each letter of the word LOVE.

I used Layers, Orange, Vellum, Enamel Dots
 That big Orange Striped star was in my "BASH"kit this month so I was glad to use that up on this layout and worked out perfect for my needed O in the word LOVE.
 The rest of the layout came from my current counterfeit kit: Glacially Toasted other than the vellum I used grabbed that from my vellum folder (I am just a wee bit organized when it comes to theme and specialty papers :) That folder is getting a bit light OMgosh I may have to go out shopping for more vellum! But for now I still have a few pieces to get met through for a bit of the spring scrapping. 
I used the current sketch over at Let's Get Sketchy for my inspiration for my layout:
 Using the star for the photo mat that they had in the sketch :) This was a fun and quick layout to put together with this sketch.
 Fun grabbing the diecut and the acrylic tags from my kit and made the journaling card for part of one of the paper layers that would have been unseen.
 The cute title came from one of the stickers that I have from one of the sheets of stickers from the sticker challenge over in the FB group 100 Pattern Paper Challenge group. Lots of layers including that vellum layer.
 Used some staples to hold down some of the elements of the layout. Enamel dots to finish off the letters of the word LOVE. This was a fun challenge
This picture of Zachary has been around for quite awhile and so glad to finally get it on a scrapbook page. It's fun to do the current photos, but it's fun to go back and see him at this size too :) Lots more photos of him and the other grandbabies that need to be scrapped yet, just not enough time in the week, retirement another 10 years away yet so do what I can for now. Just need to make sure I add the day and the story to the pictures now so they are not forgotten.
Thank you for stopping by today and seeing what I'm up too in my little corner of the world and I look forward to seeing what you all create with the letters L-O-V-E
