XOXO - My Scraps & More Sketch Reveal #102

I hope everyone is enjoying their Friday...it is International Day of Happiness, after all!  Welcome to another sketch reveal from the My Scraps & More sketch blog.  See my creation below, but please go check out all the other great designs from the team.  I created this layout using Crate Paper's Kiss Kiss - it's so fresh and pretty!  I felt it matches these cousins' rosy cheeks as I caught a photo of them hugging.  So cute!!




 I used the Kiss Kiss paper with the rosy heart on it for my base.  I cut various hearts out using my Cameo, then I distressed the edges of each of them.  In lieu of the cross-hairs in the sketch, I sewed Xs through the hearts to represent kisses.




I decided the title of XOXO would be perfect, so I found a font I liked and cut that out - I purposely left the title plain and sewed over it.  I wanted it to be soft and subtle.  I stretched the title a bit to the left from what the sketch has.



Next I created an embellishment area in the top left using a "love" wooden embellishment, and I sprinkled a few tiny wooden hearts around the layout.



I matted the photo with pink and layered it again on the words paper.  I stuck a tab of organdy ribbon and a heart pin, and popped up the photo with 3D tape for dimension.


And here is Ashley Horton's sketch:


That's all for me - thanks so much for stopping by my little piece of the blog world today! May your weekend be as sweet as chocolate.  <3
