You Are Love

Hi friends! Wow, almost Friday already! I hope you have plans to enjoy this weekend--only a couple more left before Summer is gone. I'm hoping for an Indian summer myself! Anyway, today I made my 2nd scrapbook layout this month! I just might be getting the hang of this scrapbook thing again! I had stopped scrapping altogether for a long while after I got hooked on stamping...I'm sure some can relate :) This 12x12 layout was inspired by the August Mixed Media Monthly Challenge- Stencils with Modeling Paste and I'm entering this layout into this months challenge. If you love mixed media or have been wanting to try it, this is a great challenge blog to join! It's lots of fun and I get all sorts of amazing inspiration over there!
I'm also entering this layout into the SimonSaysStamp Monday Challenge- Anything Goes!
I started my layout by using my striped hearts stencil from SaCrafters and my own homemade texture/modeling paste concoction. Then I added different patterned papers, some stamping and gold embossing for more texture.  The chalkboard element is a super chipboard sticker from PaperHouseProductions and the LOVE fishtail tags are from Chic Tags. As you can see, I just layered the letters atop some wonderful 1.5"white crochet lace trim and Beatrice white crochet lace from RRR and attached them with little white clothespins.
I'm also entering this into the current linky party over at Paper Issues: The Perfect Pairing with Epiphany Crafts.
I had fun adding bits of interest like the big Prima flower, fabric tag, gold accents, mini crystal hearts, etc. Not sure you can see it, but I also played with my new Faber-Castell Glass Bead Glitter Gel, which I recently won over at the DesignMemoryCraft blog. Love it :)
The sentiment "I know I loved you..." is from Unity Stamp Co. And the beautiful baby girl is my childhood best friends daughter, Chloe. She is growing up to be such a lovely young lady now! Time flies!
Thanks so much for visiting me and letting my share my layout with you! Wishing you a creative and very blessed day!
