Sibling Lovalry

I am blessed to have three kiddos who are genuinely supportive of each other.  
With two boys who are very competitive in sports, video games and academics, they have never held a rivalry amongst themselves.  They share in each other’s joy and disappointments…
no gigging or nah-nah-boo-boo…it’s nice!  So, as a tribute to my (generally) sweet kids…

"Sibling Lovalry"
January Paper Bakery Kit Club: Scrapbooking Kit

 I set out to keep things fun and whimsical.  I followed along the natural ‘quilt’ like pattern of the 
Ruby Rockets paper and stitched them into place.  Next, I hand-cut different sized hearts from the vintage ticket and patterned paper.  To the one heart I cut two small slits in the center and threaded through the arrow from the January Svg kit!

 Using the lines on the vintage ticket, I added a little journaling to it.  The other hearts served as a nice backdrop for the woodgrain letter stickers (I LOVE these things…a girl can never have too many alpha stickers!)  A few flecks of Color Shine spritz (Heidi Swapp Primrose) and small adhesive pearls were sprinkled around the page to help highlight the visual triangle.

 It’s nice to have an ‘anchor’ at the bottom or top of your page, especially when the majority of your design is clustered towards the center.  I’ve always felt it helps to direct the eye and grounds the page.  
For this layout, I used a doily border punch by Martha Stewart, followed by a repeat pattern of the ‘quilt’ strips.
I just love this layout and as I journaled…”I just love these people!  They make my heart happy”
