Love life!

It is a beautiful(chilly) day here, the snow is gently falling and I caught a photo coming back rom the bus of the house . It is the most magical sight, making me yearn to put up all my Christmas d├ęcor now, but I will hold off another week, as next week marks my oldest baby girls 9th birthday!

How can you NOT love life in moments like this! I wanted to share this layout also up on the UmWowStudio blog today. I have always loved this photo of little L, she looks so deep in beautiful thoughts and a love for life! I created a quite monotone layout than my usual style, to be able to focus on these gorgeous UmWowStudio products. I mean, seriously, how perfect is the saying on this flair!
I created this layout, once again, with my hand creating, cutting tools, rather than a machine.
#1: first I chose the best letters to trace, and found them in a very old stash of chipboard letters, they are so old I am unsure of the brand and they were taken out of the package long ago. I chose the letters and placed them together to create the word of choice.

#2: I than traced one letter at a time, slightly overlapping so that the finished word would be one piece.

#3: after tracing, I used my exacto knife to cut out the word from my cardstock. I repeated this two more times to have enough "love" words to fill my 12x12 paper properly.

I chose to finish the look with some gradient misting, and adding all my UmWowStudio and other embellishments.
 I hope everyone is having an awesome start to their week! Thanks for stopping in :)
