How Do I Love Thee

Hey Everyone! Happy Thursday! Today I'm sharing with you my very first digi layout. I was feeling creative, but not wanting to go to the trouble of cleaning up the disaster area in my stamp room, so I pulled up the sketch template for this week's Sketch Challenge over at the DigiChick and put my "I know I can conquer this fear of Photoshop" hat on. All digi papers and the flower, border and LOVE elements are from the Strawberry au Lait kit by Sugarplum Paperie. I love the soft colors in this collection! Although I made this page completely digital, I think it would be super easy to make traditionally, as well.




Almost all of my photos from the digital age were lost in a hard drive crash, and Mark & I rarely remember to take photos anymore, so I'm limited to the handful I had uploaded to Shutterfly to have printed a few years ago! I wish I had a better photo of Mark, but I guess the beauty of the digi layout is that I can swap it out with a new picture once I convince him to let me do a photo shoot. :)

Well, anyhow, I love this sonnet by Elizabeth Barret Browning, and the softness of the papers and elements had me all lovey-dovey, so I typed up an excerpt from Sonnet 18 and added it to the layout. The heart swirlies are a free photoshop brush by Coby17.

  3. I love the layout, that color combo is one of my favorites, and also just thought I would pass along that I finally got the chance to place an order for some Verve stamps (they are just too gorgeous, plus they're on sale?)- couldn't resist.
    Keep up the great work.
