Love Apptually

Laura Whitaker

Hello scrapbookers!  It's Laura here with you today sharing a page created for our "Social Media" theme!

Since my youngest son and I are currently residing about 3 hours away from my husband, we use social media a lot to stay connected.  We call and text each other several times a day, but my youngest is at school all day long so we have to work a little harder to keep him connected with his dad. Skyping during dinner, as often as possible, is an easy way for them to have time together. I am so grateful that we live in a time that it is super easy for us all to have daily contact!

One night while we were having dinner and skyping, I snapped a photo as I knew that this would be something that I would ant to document.  And as it turns out it is perfect for this weeks theme! The photo is a little dark as it was taken during the winter months when it is dark before 5pm, but the memory is still important.

I began my page by deciding on a title, which was a little tricky for me at first, but then it hit me and I ran with it!

Because my title had the word "love" in it I decided to use this cut file that I created, and had lots of fun filling in the heart with colourful patterns from the Par-r-rty Me Hearty collection.

Because I was so excited about my title, I worked on that next. Which is a little unusual for me.

I layered my photo over some vellum and a die cut  and cut apart tag from the same collection. Then I added some simple embellishing.

I decided to go bold with my journaling and use it as a main part of my design, then I embellished around it as well.

A few strips of pattern along the bottom of my page finishes it off!

Thank you for visiting friends!
