Just Add Water!

I was not sure where to go with this Heart 2 Heart theme, "Just Add Water" and then I remembered the wonderful water show we saw on our last night in Bucharest last September.  So I used some really old CTMH paper called Laughing Lola as well as Black cardstock and Gold Glitter Paper to create this easy and quick layout. All the pictures are 3 x 4 and double matted. The title was cut on the Cricut.

With all due caution, we have been doing a little travel...first to Colorado to assist my husband's sister with a move and now in Wisconsin, enjoying a fishing trip with family.  Therefore I have been absent from my blog, but I promise more posts in the near future.

Hope you are finding time to be creative,

 This week's Heart 2 Heart Challenge is "Family Time".  For my submission, I created  a  layout for the youngest family member's May birthday.  We were sad that we were not able to be there because of the sheltering, but we Facetimed and these pictures were shared

This was inspired by Allison Davis and is one of the layouts in the "6 x 6" class I am virtually taking from her.  The idea is to use papers from 6 x 6 paper pads.  Not having many of those, I try to choose small patterns to keep things in scale.  Often, I can use scraps and that always makes me happy.  For this layout, everything is Close to My Heart.  The paper pack is So Much Happy.  The zip strips were from I Heart Us and the title was cut on the Cricut with the Artisite font and Smoothie cardstock.

All the photos are 4 x 6 inches.  The two on the bottom are matted with 4 1/8 x 6 1/8 inch White Daisy card. I will say that placing pictures edge to edge with no mats or white space is way out of comfort zone, but I think I am getting the hang of it!

Now that we are in Phase 4 (at least in Illinois), I hope you are able to spend time with your family and those you love.  Just be safe!
