Hi everyone and Happy Tuesday! Whew! Today's project was definitely a labor of love :) I spent hours on this, but I wanted the very first layout that I shared on my blog to be fun and as good as I could make it. I have been so inspired by Lauren over at Lauren's Creative. Her scrapbook layouts are phenomenal! I definitely used a lot of tips and tricks of hers in my 2-page layout today so thank you so much Lauren for the inspiration!
Here is the full 2-page spread (I really need to practice photographing these, I'm used to photographing my small cards :)

My 12x12 craft cardstock is from Michael's and my DP is from K&Co. All other cardstock is from SU. I designed the entire layout on my Gypsy. I also used several different cartridges. The tree, the couple, and the girl on the scooter were all cut out using the Sweethearts cartridge. The corner embellishments were cut out using the Storybook cartridge. The "So In Love" was cut out using the font from Winter Woodland. The journaling tag was cut out from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More. My photo mats are matted for 4" x 4" photos and one 4 x 6 photo. I doodled on everything! :) I used my white gel pen and my black gel pen for the doodling. I added some Stardust Stickles to the hearts on the tree. The sentiment on the heart is from My Creative Time's You Had Me at Chocolate Stamp Set. For some finishing touches, I added some roses from Wild Orchid Crafts and a bow to the top of the journaling tag. If you want any specific measurements, please send me an e-mail, everything is saved in my Gypsy and I can get that for you. What do you think of my very first scrapbook layout? I have decided to enter this project in this week's Paper Playtime Challenge. The challenge this week was to use either cupid or hearts on your project.
I sure hope you like my project for today. Thank you SO much as always for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
