what do i love ....

Now for something a little different ...... I came across this challenge by the lovely Sandi - she is doing a fun little challenge: clip out things you love from a magazine and compile it together!!  I had a copy of Peppermint and found some lovely pictures which I've used to create this LO:

 The pictures do take up most of the paper space, so I've only added in a few simple embellishments and some journalling.  Here are some close-up's:
 I've used Basic Grey papers from the Kissing Booth collection - they really suit the feel of this LO!!  I've cut out some of the hearts to make a bunting ... and added in twine of course.
 I've also used some of the flower cut-out's from the same collection and layered them together.  Can you also spot a Kraft tag peaking out from behind??  and some washi tape??
Journalling from my typewriter and I've machine stitched all the way around the page.

This was fun to put together.  If you want to join along, check out Sandi's blog.
Thanks for coming by ☺
