Thinking pink, red, and cardboard?

I was inspired to do this layout thanks to a call over at Scrapbook News and Review for cardboard base layouts. I got a package in the mail last night and decided right then to reuse it. I cut it down to 8x10 size, a whole new size for me and went to town. I have all of my Valentine's embellishments and papers on my desk for another project I am working on, so instead of doubling the mess, I dug through the pile to find the pieces for this layout.

Now I must tell you. This was supposed to feature a photo booth strip of dear Hubsters and I, but I tucked said strip into a planner that I cannot currently find and am seriously fretting I have given away without taking out the picture. (Sigh.)

Nonetheless, I LOVE this little layout! It has a bunch of goodies on here that make me happy. Jenni Bowlin patterned papers, (one of my all time faves of hers), Sassafras Lass metal brooches which I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! There is a new resin rose snuck on the bottom from Stampin Up! that are so sweet I could just eat them up, the crocheted cherries were a find on an old sweater scored at the "G," and I have really wanted to use those red glittered clothes pins from K&Co. since I snagged them last month. Add to that the awesome Making Memories mini frames and some of my all time favorite Pink Paislee chipboard letters and I have combination of girly happiness.


  1. Oh, I love this! The color combo is awesome, and I love those little cherries. Cute photos!
