  1. Heather ... oh my ... I love how you framed this amazing photo. The monochromatic layers focus the eye on the important subject, the photo; and yet, the layers themselves are works of art to enjoy. Love the subtle splatters, stitching and stamping that gives us a feel of negative space around the focus of this LO. Oh and I love the tape on the sides. Seriously ... can you tell that I just love the entire thing?!?! Fabulous make! -- Mary Elizabeth

  2. Stunning LO Heather, but they always are.... the photo is adorable (must be quite a few years ago by now) love how the monochromatic backgrounds compliments the blue tones in the photo and some of the embellies, - great composition (like always lol) you are so good at this kind of thing!!
