Your Love is the Sweetest thing - and some very exciting news!!!!

Here is my page for 'Once Upon a Sketch'. The theme this month is the quote 'do all thing with love'.  My husband snapped this photo on Valentines day morning. I love how he caught the moment when Sophie decided to turn and kiss me. What she whispered to me at that moment is recorded in my journaling.
I used papers from MME and that gorgeous chipboard frame is from Dusty Attic. I used up some of my flower collection - including the pink bouquet which I have had in my stash for years.
For the second time in two days I have left the background relatively plain - no blots or splatters. I think that this simple background really makes the other elements 'pop'. It was hard for me though to put away my spray inks and masks lol.

Now for my news, which I have had a hard time keeping to myself for the last couple of weeks.
2Crafty chipboard had a design team call last month. I really LOVE their chipboard so I thought tht I would give it a go. Yesterday their new DT was officially revealed on the 2crafty blog. Here is the official post:
So without further delay, it is with extreme delight that I announce
