Scrap Our Stash "Young Love" February Sketch + Hearts

Happy February Scrappers!  It is time for Scrap our Stash Blog's Sketch Plus Challenge!
This is  FUN one - perfect for Valentine's Day! You must use Heart Patterned Paper
and / or 3 or more hearts - I decided to do both!
I picked a photo of my hubby and I from "way back when" we were first dating in High School!
I decided not to add a title to the layout, and just did a little journaling in the bottom point of the big white heart that is on the base page.  I've had this paper for-ev-er and when I saw the BIG Heart on the sketch - I dug through my stash to find it!!  I hope I've inspired you to play along with us this month at the Scrap Our Stash blog - I can't wait to see your entries!
Young Love @ 1977 ~ High School Sweethearts

Here are some close ups for you:
I cut these hearts out of scrap heart pattern paper that I had and matted it on black, inking the edges and outlining some of the hearts with a black glitter pen.

The photo is from a photo booth, and I used a filter when I printed it.  the bit of "bling" under the photo is from a broken bracelet - talk about using your "stash!"

Love this chippie from Dusty Attic - I painted it pearl white with a dabber, then used silver and grey Distress Stains to give it dimension. So fun!

OMG! We were SO YOUNG!! 

I love adding layers, dimensions and all different textures to my layouts!
These Prima Flowers are beautiful!!


I've also entered this layout in the CSI Case File No. 273 Challenge  I drew on the Traditional Clues - The Color Scheme - Baby Pink, Fuchsia, Light Gray, Evidence - Hearts, Valentine Themed Elements, Metal, Distressing -Testimony - Young Love
