Love You

Let me start off by saying, this photo is a much bigger deal than meets the eye... GG, Natalie's grandma (aka someone NOT me), was able to feed her a little cereal last week! Omigoodness, someone else can finally feed this 5 month old little beast!! She finally didn't cry as soon as anyone else in the family looked at her that wasn't me or Chris too. It seems she has turned a corner... hoping this lasts for awhile anyway!

Onto the layout - I was totally inspired by Nicole Samuels' Starting Points blog (here) this week, to use a mosaic! Her blog entry couldn't have come at a better time because I bought some of the Plus One collection by Amy Tangerine for early release at but they still haven't released any 12x12 papers, so I was looking for ideas where I could use the 6x6 papers!

So I decided to start with the heart diecut, and then add punches outward. This was really fun to put together! I made them more dense near the heart and gradually less dense as it fanned out. It looked cool and it saved me from having to punch a gazillion stars, plus with all the color, it helped give some space for your eyes to rest. I love the brush script foam letter thickers! I just added a label and sticker at the top right to balance out the page! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Emily, this page is awesome! I love the way you fanned the rainbow stars out away from the photo. Such a great idea! Also, yay for mom getting a feeding break for once. :) My two youngest never took bottles, so I was on call all the time until they were weaned. I loved that time, but it's also exhausting for sure. Natalie is beautiful!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Nicole!! It's so funny how I never heard of a baby not taking a bottle till AFTER mine refused and now I know so many moms who say the same thing! I guess it's not that bad of a problem in the long run :) I am loving your Starting Points entries so far - it is like a free online class, so awesome!!
