You Melt My Heart


I had a lot of fun with this one, adding a tea bag stained background, some molding paste, some Shimmerz Bed of Roses and gesso!! I used the non-themed side of the Authentique Sweetness papers, no ice cream cones for this one...though I used a lot of the die cuts including the Melt My Heart one that sneaks in a bit of an ice cream look, subtle one though :) I took a bunch of the frames from the die cut sheet and layered them under the photo and one over the photo too :) Everything including the very white tags got a tea dye staining!
The flowers and vine are all prima and just used some household string to accent my layout. Final touch is a bit of bling confetti sprinkled around the layout.


I'd love to enter this in the Scrap Africa sketch challenge (I started with this sketch but it took on a life of its own...I used the photo placement from the sketch, my vine is the fence, and my background is the circles instead of the chicken wire!!) and the Scrap for Help tea bag challenge!!!
