Over at Scrap-it-lah challenge is a non-traditional Valentine theme, NO RED, NO PINK, on your Valentine's day layout.

JUST YOU AND I ~ Vatican City 2008



I swear that Webster's pages vellum is not pink.... LOL


I had some tough time trying to crack this chipboard frame from my Pixie February Kit


my 2nd attempt and I still can't get that crack effect from that crackle paint
what did I do wrong to get those bubbles instead? Any tips?


I love this picture of my husband, he looks great in this picture, isn't he?




Ingredients -
Webster's Pages Vellum and Diecut 
Graphic 45 alphabets
Maya road chipboard frame
 from Pixie February Kit "Springtime Pixie"
Glitz Designs rub-ons frame
all the above are from Pixie February Kit "Springtime Pixie"


Brown trim is from Pixie January Kit "My Funky Valentine"
