My Valentine

Good Morning! The Colorful Creations challenge for Feb. 1st has been revealed. 
For this challenge, we would like you to use the inspiration photo below and create your page. You can be inspired by the colors, hearts, title, etc... whatever inspires you from this photo.
 I was inspired by pretty much everything about the photo, but I started off with the design, hearts, and theme. 
I used papers from the Love Notes collection by Crate Paper. And as a special touch I used two heart doilies under my photo. My husband and I were married on Valentine's Day, and the doilies are actually from our wedding reception many moons ago. The scrapbooker in me saved a handful of them "just incase" and now I finally used a couple. I distressed my layers, then did some stamping on the background and journaling card. The word strips are adhered using pop dots for more dimension and to help them stand-out just a bit.
Thanks so much for stopping in! I hope that I've inspired you in some small way, and if you get the chance to join us you have until Feb. 14th to link your page here. I'm really looking forward to seeing your creations. Hope you have an awesome weekend!
