This is Love

I am a sucker for adorable cut files and I've been on a mission to use my Silhouette Cameo more and more. It doesn't have a permanent home at the moment due to space and so, it doesn't get used as often as I would like. BUT, last weekend I spent a glorious three days in nature, at a lovely retreat center, scrapping the days away. It was a wonderful time with over 80 other scrapbookers. The scenery was gorgeous and the venue was relaxing. 

At the crop, I had my machine out and ready to be used and what better cut file to use then the January freebie at Paper Issues!

I snagged the hearts and enlarged them to use as a background. I love how the white looks on that woodgrain pattern paper. SO pretty! 

Those babes are not mine. My lovely friend is allowing me to use them for scrapbooking subjects and I am promising to send these lovely pages to her to keep. 

The collection I focused on using was the Stitched collection by Amy Tangerine for American Crafts. It truly is a lovely collection and I loved being able to use some elements I might not normally use.
