Love Moments With You

Good Morning :) Now back to the normal work week, I hope you all had a fantastic holiday yesterday. This is a short week for me as I will be attending the MGCA hosting the MMCI  winter convention in Gettysburg, PA. So lots of crafting in a short period of time this week for my DT spots this coming weekend. But lets start with today's challenge first. This layout was made for the Creative Cutting Challenge Anything Goes:
 This layout is of the first time I held my youngest grandson. I waited quite a bit for him to open his eyes. This picture was taken a few days after he was born, I had printed it both in color and b/w. I used Creative Pointe's Valentine Hearts svg file for my layout.
Valentine Hearts - Click Image to Close
A cool set of hearts that can really be used for lots of themes not just Valentines
 So I enlarged the double heart and used that in the center for my title background and I scattered a few of the combine hearts around for borders and embellishment spots. The gold foil words were cut with my cameo, I used 2 Silhouette store files to make up the title.
 Added some of the newest trend of nesting with the red twine and my journal spot came from one of the cards in my counterfeit kit, as did the rest of my papers.
Love this besides the pictures I also love the addition of the hearts here for the border element and some fun blue sequins.
 This corner spot I took one of the negative cut hearts from the large cut and added a piece of the swirl heart, some more of the twine and the blue sequins.
Here I found the perfect vellum square to use for the layout from my baby theme drawer of stuff added more on the swirl hearts. This was just a fun layout to do and I used this sketch for my layout:

A fun sketchathon is going on over at My Scraps and More for the month of April on their forum board: You can see more information here on this blog post.
Some of my crafting this month is going to come about from a box of stuff I found in my craftroom the other night. I boxed up all this stuff from my craft desk right before the Christmas Holiday crafting and put it in this box:
 I figured I would start from the top and work all the way through it. So this box is my goal for the month other than the DT themed posts that need done that might not work for those themes.
There is all kinds of stuff in here so this should be fun, a photo envelope too hmmmm I wonder what may be in there? Be a week or 2 before I find out by the way it looks.
