It must be love, love , love, da na!

Welcome along blog hoppers...here is my layout for this months Scrap that Poetry using a strange little poem by Edgar Allen Poe. I have taught Poe's short stories to my sixth form students but not his poetry. I used the line "to love and be loved" and scrapped these photo's of my sister and her hubby and my hubby and I that were taken at a recent family BBQ. I like the symmetry in the pics and decided to use the purple and green colours for the layout. I hand cut my title, but then felt it didn't stand out so backed in on white card to make it pop - this is always a time consumming task!! A distressed, handmade flower to seperate and embellish the pics.
I decided the finished layout was quite plain for my standards but didn't want to overembellish as the lettering was quite busy so I made I sewed on a button border on top of my ribbon border to really frame this LO. In fact when I get along to Ikea I think I will frame this layout. Where is the cheapest place to get 12 by 12 frames? I want to invest in quite a few to display my creations.
Now hop on over to the other dt members like Kelly, Angie, Michelle, Heidi, Nikki, Tessa, Julie, Jessica and Shazza! Hopefully the answers will be revealed! Have a fab day and week...only three more sleeps till my holiday! Woo hoo!!!!


  1. I LOVE this page so much, everytime I think I couldn't love a page anymore you prove me wrong! I love the way you've picked out the green and purple from our outfits and all the cute buttons, and the cute button flower! The time consuming of making the title pop totally paid off...you should sell this lettering as it's awesome! have the best time on your holiday xxx
