Love You Everyday-CMS Challenge #16

Hi! I am back again with a layout! I am so happy with the way this one turned out! I am so glad I made the jump and bought the Cameo. I can't say enough good things about it. It cuts like butter. With the change in format of challenges over at CMS, we now have four color palette's each month. Each challenge run's for 2 weeks, so there is a overlap but enough time. Every palette has a added twist to it, a sketch/word/technique. It is super fun, I haven't had a problem with it yet. I think it just makes it more interesting. So this is what I came up with this week's challenge! 

I just had to scrap this pic. Anurag and myself, we were making funny faces and just clicking pics on the phone for fun. I spent three hours with him at the park and he wanted to stay longer!! Sid joined us after work. Played some more with him. He is so adorable. We say 'I love you' to each other all day long. I am so blessed to have him!

Isn't the arrows pattern paper rocking! I love it! I cut out the center since it was getting covered anyways, just to save that paper! LOL, Yes I do have a paper addiction. I hoard in all possible ways:) I love all the papers used on this layout. The weekdays, the arrows, and the kraft love paper.

I used Ali Edward's handwriting font for the title. I used kraft, white and blue core cardstock. I cut the three layers, one slightly bigger than the other just so they would peek from underneath. I saw Amy Tan's layout here and loved how she hand stitched those arrows. I decided to do mine in brown. I love the transparency tape. I added some at the bottom and top. 

I also stitched some silvers arrows. I am obsessed with silver and gold ! I added little bits of AC Silver glitter ribbon in three different places on the layout. I think it adds such a rich feel to the whole page! 

After adding some more machine sewing in silver, I cross-stitched the word 'Love' with the same brown thread. I cut the bubble from the Take Note paper by pebbles. The twist in this challenge was to use the word 'Enter' somewhere on the layout. I used it to say ' Entered Terry Hershey Park at 3.15 and left three hours later'. The vellum happiness bubble was part of my SC kit. The tiny puffy arrows,hearts and clouds are also SC Kit exclusives! Well, I hope I have inspired you a little bit today!

This challenge runs from November 8th to 15th. Don't forget to use the word ' Enter' somewhere on the layout along with the below color palette.

Again this month's sponsor at CMS is Paper Issues! Cassie is giving away $20 gift certificate to her store. All you have to do is enter in at-least two of the challenges this month and your name will be entered twice. If you do all the four challenges, it will be entered four times!
