Stole Our Hearts...

I can't believe it!  I was mentioned under "On the Watch List" at CSI for my "Baby Face" layout, so incredibly honored!! ;O) Lots of talent over there, can't believe mine was even noticed!

Thought I'd share the other layout I managed to finish over the past couple of weeks and since it was fitting for Valentine's Day...I've literally had this sitting on my scrap table since last June.  Usually, when something sits there that long, I end up getting so sick of looking at it, I just throw some things on it to get it done.  But, I love how this one turned out and didn't really agonize over it like normal.  I used Case File #24 posted on 6/24 at the CSI blog for this one.  Evidence used are jewels and silver accents and my Testimony was to add jewels to the journaling spot.

Cardstock: CTMH Grey Wool, Baby Pink, and Tulip
Paper: Kaiser Craft Tiger Lily Collection and Echo Park Yours Truly
Ink: Tsukineko Tuxedo Black
Other:  CTMH crocheted flower and metal embellishment,  Cricut Elegant Edges, Designer Calendars, and Gypsy Fomt Cartridges, Recollections adhesive rhinestones, American Crafts TradeMarks (rubons), Inkadinkado Mini Stamps, KaiserKrafts Paper Flower, Stampendous Embossing Powder, Stickles, Making Memories Embroidery Floss, and CSI Coordinates

I'm so sad to say that this was my first and apparently last challenge with the Scrap Fit Blog as they have decided to end their challenges.  I didn't realize they'd decided to end the blog until today when I went to find "Workout #69", the sketch I had used from way back on June 1st to do the layout below.  I'm so disappointed.  Obviously, I didn't get to participate much after finding the blog, but, I did really enjoy the variety of challenges they had each week and found it very inspirational.  For example, I also incorporated "Workout #70" posted on June 15th to "Develop your Own Polarods"into this layout.  I found the free polaroid picture frames online somewhere, but, it's been so long, I wouldn't be able to tell you where to give them credit.  I think I also used a grunge frame from one of Jessica Sprague's online courses to give the photos more depth. 

Anyway, hope you are all enjoying what's left of your Valentine's Day!  Dave, Owen, and I all have tomorrow off which would have been great, but, Owen's come up with a nasty flu bug!  We'll be watching him and his sister very closely the next couple of days!!
