Hugs and Kisses Layout

Hope everybody is doing great on this second week of the year!
Today is Tuesday and to me that means I get to share a project
created for Happy N Scrappin' Online Craft Store

I used Fancy Pants Love Story Layout Kit for the following one page layout.
This is my version of layout #1 on your kit

 The first picture is more true to the colors, but the flash got in the way.  The second picture is a bit more warmer, but I like it the same.  I really like how the papers match the colors in my pictures, especially my daughter's dress that actually has the same combination of neutrals, reds, pinks and blues.

Dove tail banners is one of the hot trends in the paper crafting world today (along with Twine, Chevrons and Tangerine Tango colors) and are part of the suggested layout on your kit.  I have to admit that I do have a hard time using the banners upside down as suggested on the kit, so I flipped mine down and added some Black Coffee Timeless Twine (I really like the rich deep black color in this twine) and buttons from the collection on both sides.

Another change I made on this layout is the placement of the buttons and the added tabs and XO that I cut with my cutting machine.  Additionally, I used a different tag then the suggested one so that by using this one I can add my journal entry.  I used removable tape because I want to type my entry and did not have access to a typewriter today.

Remember that each kit provides enough product and instructions to create your layouts as suggested or to accommodate your taste/preference.
