Love, me love, me love, me love

me love my family...(for those Yo Gabba Gabba fans sing along with me :)  It's Valentines Day!  What better way to show love than with a sweet layout??  The February sketch challenge # 12 over at Scrap Our Stash (SOS) has been up-OUR S.W.A.K. CHALLENGE"

Here's how this challenge works:
Create a layout with Red AND/OR Pink (50% of layout) with the following stash items: 
S. - Stitching (machine, hand or faux),
W. - Washi Tape
A. - Arrow 

K. - Kraft paper/embellishment

(Arrow, wash tape and kraft embellishments must be PREMADE/PACKAGED scrap products and each letter MUST be a separate item.)

DUE: 2/27/2014 midnight PST
You are allowed to add whatever else you want to your layout as long as you meet the requirements above.

My husband rarely gets in the pictures so these are rare sitings!  Years ago, we decided that rather than take a picture on the first day of school, we started doing the LAST day of school.  2013 we made some of  them family pictures :) for  #aleidaschallenge
MY TAKE ON THE CHALLENGE:
 (S) stitching was done to create the pocket for the journaling cards
(W)  washi is on the journaling cards-I like using tiny bits of it rather than long strips of it
(A) arrows -epoxy style
(K) kraft paper -rather than a kraft background (my norm) I just sewed a a big torn piece in there for up close visual interest

background paper was already prepainted and bannered like that-from one of those large paper packs but I forget which manufacturer!  Pretty cool though and I'm glad I finally got to use that too!

oh wait, just in case you forgot  I forgot to mention it, the prize up for grabs is a gift certificate  from Frosted Designs!  They have some goodies like washi, stamps, mists, paper-who doesn't need crafty supplies right about now???
