U Have My Heart Layout

I have been feeling frustrated by a set of three random photos that I kept pulling out and putting away because I couldn't figure out how to scrap them, so today I decided to create my own challenge and see where it took me. Since it's February, I'm doing a word play challenge by adding an element to the layout for every letter in the word February. Here's my list of what I finally added:
   F – Flight of the Arrows stamp set
   E – Embroidery floss, EMS Sketch 13
   B – Brothers Chevron patterned paper, Boy's Pocket die-cut
   R – Ribbon
   U = "U" chipboard
   A – Arrows
   R – Ric-rac
   Y – Yellow enamel dots
It ended up being fun as I pulled together papers and embellishments from at least five different manufacturers, and I love how it all ended up melding together without being too matchy! If you enjoy this challenge, feel free to play along and leave a link below to your completed layout.

Yes! Great idea for tackling a difficult page! Way to work through it instead of letting them go un-scrapped! Great page - thanks for playing at Lasting Memories!
