The paper I used was "Dark Distress Red", and "Classic Roses", from the Valentine Shape Set I used the lips & the fancy heart I added a string along heart to the left side of the photo mat and used two of the embellishment page by cutting out the fancy journaling spot. To the left side of the layout I placed a tall valentines card that was given to his wife. A few months after Feb 14 his life was cut short do to a freak accident while on vacation. The sentiment said "I'm so glad my heart found you" Love Cliff. I then framed the layout so she can hang it on her wall.
This is the second page of the layout. From the Robin's Nest I used the paper "Valentine Hearts" & "Classic Roses". The tag is from the embellishment page. From Gina's Store I used the Cupids from the "Cupid Shape Set". Both were painted with white gesso then stamped with Fire Brick Red Distress Ink using music notes. The love sign was also painted with white gesso. I placed a red piece of paper behind the sign & placed it on the tag. The three hearts were prepared using embossing ink & Utee. The Utee is a mix of gold, silver, bronze & black. From the "Valentine Shape Set"The string along love is out of the "String Along - Hearts" painted red then white/clear glitter was added. I placed a 4 X 6 photo mat & a large wooden heat. The large heart was raised up using foam dots in order to get a photo behind. The red heat is removable to use to size the photo to slip behind the heart.
The rest of the photo are close-ups of the layouts.
