Lets Scrap: 2-15-17: Smile layout

Well summer has been short lived here in New Zealand and temperatures are dropping already.  Which is a good reason to stay indoors and craft. 

And to help you along,  our second sketch for 'Lets Scrap Sketches' for February month.
My layout
 And the flash back sketch is:
Now a couple of close ups.

I used my trusty old sewing machine to help with this layout.  Attaching the leaf embellishments with a plain machine stitch

 I love using white cardstock for the base paper as it makes the layout for fresh and clean. 
The photos are fun and were taken by a friend who attended the Autumn escape scrapbooking weekend get away in Taupo, New Zealandwith me back in 2015

 Happy crafting. 

I have also share this layout with the following challenges:

Everybody-Art-Challenge - #396 -  For Girls Only or Valentine

If you give a crafter a cookie - Challange #62

Welcome to first challenge from 'If you give a crafter a cookie' for February 2017

and here is the inspiration for
challenge #62

 And here is my creation, is a little card for the special day coming up this month.

My inspiration was the heart shape.
  I used stamps from my stash - 'Simply said' from Stampin Up

I have 3 layers on the card and also matted the large heart
and I used foam dots to attach the hearts.
Keeping it simply simple (kiss) works well

Hope you like the card. 

Happy scrapping.
