Hi there! I played along with a scrap lift challenge over in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook group. They are lifting a beautiful large photo layout by Janet Grzanka-Dlugokenski. Here is how my take turned out.

Most often, I start with a collection I want to work with and then I try to find a photo that matches. This time, since a large photo was a key element of the design, I started the other way around. I must admit, it was a much more time consuming process. I fell for and mixed not-so-new Bella Blvd, Dear Lizzy and Amy T from my stash.

When she gets to choose... color, this is what it looks like :D

The hair dresser had to ask her several times if she was really sure: "You really want half your head blue and half orange? Really? Are you sure?" LOL! I love her for being this brave and cool and her own ♥

I played along with one of Paper Issues' sketches for this month. You can find all their challenges in their fabulous Facebook group. I miss being on that team every single day... Every. Single. Day. I think I'll always be a Paper Issues girl in my heart ♥

I have used the new Hello Love collection from Crate Paper for this one. I don't usually fall for Valentine collections, but this one got me. I just had to have it. It's adorable!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
