Thankful

Happy Friday - hope you are having a good one and getting ready for the weekend.
Just sharing a LO I started earlier on this week - it was intended for the Colour Combo's Galore #179
but I didn't get to finish it on time.  Still, I wanted to share, because it's not often I scrap a picture of me and hubby.  So here it is:

I toned down the pictures so they were mainly B&W, just keeping some natural skin tone colours.  I found the perfect piece of BG paper in my stash, so that set the rose tone!
Here's some close-up's:
 I found a You-Tube Video showing these cute little crochet hearts, so I've been having the most wondering time creating these.  They are really quite addictive.  I've added buttons to the centre - but you can leave them plain too.  Best thing is, they take about TWO minute to make - and you have a great little embellishment ready to use!
The little letter stickers are by October Afternoon.
 Some journalling and a few rolled up edges - I love this layered look.
A little birdie button in black which you can find in my Etsy store and some sprinkles of tiny crochet flowers.
I must say that I love the way this came together and it's a recent picture too, so one for this years album.
Have a wonderful weekend and happy crafting.

Hi Chantelle! This is a gorgeous layout. LOVE it! You know you can still upload it to the CCG gallery...you actually have all month to upload, but what the deadline means is that thats the last day the colour combo is live and the next day a new combo will be released. But please do go ahead and upload it as its a shame not to since you have done such as awesome job!. Take good care, Nadia.
