Spring smiles

Hi there, it´s Monika here from chilly Sweden where fall is quickly approaching. Today I´m hoping to inspire you with a few layouts and a bottle full of love.

This is a really quick and easy layout with a photo from taken day after midsummer, I have used the Blueberry Hill collection and just added a few ribbons to it.

I really love some of the simple and clean layouts I have seen lately, but making one myself is a real challenge for me. Here I have used papers from the Boo-tiful line, I flipped the scalloped edge paper to reverse, white, side to make the border under the photo. The journaling is about my beautiful nice whom I love dearly.

This is my last layout, here I have used digital layouts as inspiration to achieve the layered look. The road sign decoration is a printed digital element and the bar code thingy was on my mascara. Al the papers are from the Tree love line.

This month I will have to spend two weekends away from my daughter. It´s very rare that I´m not home when she goes to bed and I will definitely have a hard time to be without her. I know she will to. That is why I made this little milk bottle for her and filled it with kisses, hugs and “I love you-s”. I explained to her that every time she misses me, she just takes out a note, reads what is on it and knows that she got a kiss, hug or “I love you” from me because that is what I have put on each piece of paper.
I have used the Pocket of Stickers-Red Crosshatch to decorate the jar.
