Love you & me// The Clique Kit Blog Hop

Hello all my beautiful scrapbook friends.  Thank you for stopping by during our monthly blog hop.  This months kit features the lovely Maggie Holmes Shine collection which is just so beautiful.  I find it very very hard to cut into a 12x12 sheet of paper because I want to hoard them and have to tell myself--> no--> create pretty layouts with it.  Its ok to cut pretty patterned paper. 
So, I started out with American Crafts white card stock and I am using the speciality acetate sheet from the Maggie Holmes Shine collection that was in the February Clique Kit.  I layered red, yellow, blue and mint green PL cards from former kits behind my picture.  The photo is from my Valentine's day this year on my first visit to Disney World.  I had a great time there and everyone has their classic photo in front of the castle.  

I added Dylusion mists in Calypso Blue, bubblegum pink and lemon zest around the photo on the white card stock along with cracked pistachio from Distress.  I knew where I wanted to position my photo and the watercolor effect went all around it.  I then added watercolor splatters in the same colors to the card stock to add more dimension to my background when the acetate sheet was on top of it.  

The ephemera  wood veneer and stickers are all from the Shine collection and in the kit this month.  I added a few pieces from the Hello Love collection as well.  I love the look of the tangled thread on layouts as a final touch.  Here is my process video for you to see it coming together.  

Here is the order of the blog hop.
