So Punny | Remote Hog layout with Melinda

We'd like to wish everyone a Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Historically February 14 is the most romantic day of the year so I thought it was fitting to scrap about my husband who very rarely allows his face to be in front of a camera. However, because I was using the 'So Punny' collection I thought it would be more fun to do a lighthearted page with the same sentiment behind it.

The entire layout design was based directly from the little television icon which I loved from the moment I found it inside the Odds & Ends packet. I really wanted to replicate the test pattern stripes but I also couldn't shake the idea of having a heart background. So after a few sketches I settled on a striped heart that I could stitch with matching color thread to the test pattern.

And how fun to find a matching remote... which gave me the idea to have 'Remote Hog' as the title to my layout. Although I seriously think my husband would disagree! I also used the little pink 'love' arrow sentiment from the brand new 'Chit Chat' pack.

Speaking of new products, the teenie tiny hearts are the latest Sprinkles and I have used almost two packets already. I cannot get enough of these little pieces because they make the perfect embellishment without being too heavy on the overall design.

I hope everyone has a wonderful day whether they celebrate Valentine's Day or not. It's nice to simply do something for someone you love regardless of the date.
