Scrappy Saturday's Challenge #2

I'm back! Another challenge--this time "Something Lovey". This was actually difficult for me. I had NO idea what I was going to use. Then I found some pictures I had printed and hadn't been scrapped. What better way to enter a "lovey" challenge than to scrap pictures taken at Boldt Castle on Heart Island!! It's a beautiful place and if you're ever in Alexandria Bay, NY, then please take a boat tour or taxi and visit. It's a true love story and a beautiful location. Hey, I should know. I worked there for 3 summers and hoped to get married there one day. (check that one off the list, lol!)
Back to businees--the cartridges I used:
  • Hearts--Gypsy Wanderings, hiding the highlight. The one on the left I took off the proportion link and stretched to get as big as would fit in approx. 6 in wide and not be too tall for the page.
  • Boldt Castle--Creative Memories Cheerful Seasons, with a shadow.
  • Heart Island--Gypsy Font, welded using my gypsy.
Let's take a closer look. I'm still working on how to take a good picture of a 2 page layout.

Base cardstock is DCWV. I have so much of this! I'm trying to use it as much as possible because I don't like it. The textured surface really makes it difficult to get things to stick. The patterned paper is from CM. Have I ever mentioned before just how much scrapbooking stuff I have?? Let's put it this way, I would never have to buy another thing again and still have plenty for my grandkids to leave their wills. Sometimes I get overwhelmed with all the choices I have and wind up not getting anything accomplished.

Anyway, this was fun. Glad to be scrapping again! Maybe I'll even do another layout before the next challenge is announced!!
