We're almost back to Valentine's Day, so it's time to get those pink and red collections out of your drawers! :) This week I'm using Lots of Love for this cute Love layout.

I love to fussy cut things out of paper, so I decided to go with the Forever Flowers paper and relax a bit while cutting out a lot of little flowers. My idea was to create a heart with them. 

At first, I wanted the heart to be straight and be in the center of the page but when I put my photo on top, I changed my mind and placed everything the way you see it on the page now.

When I had everything where I wanted it, I adhered my photo to a piece of white card stock and then to a piece of the Forever Flowers paper. I distressed the edges and laid the photo on the page without adhering it.

Then I started to place all of my little flowers, creating the shape of a heart.  I tried to keep the same distance between the left edge of the heart and the edge of the paper, as the right edge of the photo and the right edge of the paper. I love my things to be balanced... :)

I adhered the photo first, and then all of the flowers. I bent all of the flowers in the center to create dimension. Then I added tiny enamel hearts and jewels from the collection in the small gaps in between the flowers. 

I just love how it looks!  It really turned out very cute. To give the layout more color,  I cut out 4 strips of paper from the Sprinkled with Love  paper to create a frame. I also used a fine black pen to add a scribbly line all around. 

To finish, I added a title, three ladybug Doodle Pops and some gold splatters.

See you soon and happy Valentine's Day :)
