First love

My design team challenge this week over at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge was to document a first love :
Just in time for Valentine’s Day next month – your first love – a real boy or girl, try to include a momento from that time with them, or download an image or something from that era from the internet if you wish. A pop or movie star crush can be substituted for a real live crush if you are too shy to tell us how it really was!!!
Well I was tempted to do a page about my teenage daughters current obsessions with movie stars and music icons, but then I came across this photo of myself at 17 with my chemistry class and teacher (who I had a serious crush on!)
I kept the page simple so that the photo would not be overwhelmed.  I used lots of cut out hearts (ofcourse) and a masked, spray inked background. I added some buttons, cut-outs and bling to add interest to my heart design and completed the page with strip journaling. Why not have a try at this one yourself - there are prizes and guest DT positions to be won and you will end up with a great memory recorded for your kids and grandkids to giggle over in the future :)

Sara: I love the flow on this page! And how you added bling in the form of sparkles, it melted my heart! Great page! So glad we're on this team together!

Hi Sara - mine was our English teacher, Mr Hansen. No pic, unfortunately! I love how you've made this page full of white space...different, but works really, really well.
