Addicted to love

Hi everyone I have a layout to share with you. 



I created this layout using the sketch over at OUAS. I am addicted to love...... I Love .....love!! Especially the love from my kids and my wonderful husband. (Journaling on the back) 

Here is the sketch this month. 


For my layout I used Prima Something Blue paper collection. I kept it pretty simple I think. I used some Shimmerz products. I also used some chipboard pieces and some Prima flowers. (If you place a order for Shimmerz be sure to mention my name in the not to merchant section to receive your choice of texturez or dazzlerz.)

***My journaling says. 
I am addicted to love. Love is so wonderful. I love loving my kids and my husband and I love the unconditional love they give me. I love.......love. Love to me is the key to happiness. When I first met my now husband I knew there was something special about him. He is the one who showed me what true unconditional love is. He loves me when im unlovable. Kids do the same. Even on my worst mommy days they are always there with there little smiles and I love you's. When you experience true love it is so easy to be addicted to it. 

Here is a couple more pictures.

Psalm 23:6

Today I have a card to share with you. 


I have used the Prima Stationery Desk collection. I used the packaging from the flowers as well. For the background I used some Shimmerz products..... not knowing how the card was going to end up I was going for more of a mixed media card but it didn't end up that way. You can see little bits of the products behind the papers....... I used Stazon ink to stamp the sentiment.  I used is the Surely Goodness stamp set. I used some seam binding too. To finish off the card I used a flower from the collection. 

Here is another picture.
