It's ALL About LOVE Blog Hop
This gorgeous photo was taken at a historic hotel in Miami where they had their fairy-tale wedding. The entire cream color sheet of vellum over lay is stamped with black ink and the flourish design is from Anna Griffin's stamps.
The word LOVE was also stamped and so was the bottom heart design.

Since I had so much trouble choosing which l/o to use for this  theme, I hope you enjoy the elements that went into this "I LOVE YOU" page of my oldest Grand daughter Emma. The flowers were all created with left over silk ribbon and lace. There are bronze brads in the center to accent the flowers. I used cream color ribbon to thread through the frame around Emma. I purposely printed her photo in Sepia tones which went better with the brown and since the Princess room she is in is all pink, it clashed!
The paper I used  was Come Fly With Me from the Ella Blue Collection. I got it from a class I took at Scrapbook Expo and fell in love with the blue/brown combination.  The glitter is all Stickles and I use it on almost everything!
Thanks for stopping by and sharing some LOVE. Time to show some LOVE over at
