On this day, 14th February, many will celebrate with flowers, chocolates, romantic dinners etc between loved ones.
I have always wondered what's all the hype about this day for years and I finally sat down this morning to google about it.
Check out this link to a short video of how Valentine's Day came about :)
In sync with the love spirits around us today, I'm sharing a layout of me and Gabriel filled with sweetness and loads of hearts :)
The mini flourishes and ornate frame chipboards from 2Crafty have added so much glamour and elegance to my page.
I love this photo which we took when I was sending him to school on one of the mornings.
It's the "us" time which I thoroughly enjoy even though it means I have to wake up a 6am during school days......definitely an important little moment to be documented.
I have started this page on a white cardstock and created my own background of yummilicious colors using Tattered Angels Mist, Kaisercraft Paint, distress inks and not forgetting beautiful stencils!
I then did some fussy cutting from Webster's Pages and Simple Stories paper which I have distressed and pop them up in layers using 3D foam dots.
The 2crafty chipboards were all applied with 2 generous layer of white gesso before dabbing on some Kaisercraft paints.
Here are some close ups photos for a better look on the background, layering, fussy cutting and chipboards.
These are the supplies I have used to create this layout. All supplies are listed according to the product pictures from left to right.
