021222 CKC February Challenge #1 - Love Stories


Master Forger of Ceremonies Misty couldn't resist giving us this prompt for our first CKC February ChallengeTell a story of love—romantic or not ! Do you have a love language that guides how you show love? Do you have a love for a favorite food or place? I'd LOVE to see all your love pages!
My starting point was this Becky Fleck Sketch #262 from the A Cherry on Top weekly sketch inspiration.

The second was this 2021 MME Gingham Foundry/Blue Skies b-side paper with the lyrics to the song, It's a Wonderful World. 
I decided to use the fussy-cut lyric strips in place of the patterned paper in the sketch behind the title & photos. This proved quite a bit larger than the sketch - as usual, I have already gone rogue!
I chose the sweet floral 2014 Gossamer Blue On My Desk/Daydreamer paper for the background. I have hoarded this paper forever & am pleased at being able to use it on this romantic layout. I cut out a skinny frame from the Echo Park Just Be You/Life is a Ride b-side hearts (instead of mounting the background & gutting it.)

I used an image of the earth as the large circle element in the title block, embellished with a heart. Instead of a paper clip on the photo I  added a stacked PinkFresh sticker & more hearts.

A swath of heart washi spans the page to create a horizontal element & marries up with the end of the title sentiment & the stamped & decorated tag.

I included the QR code link to Louis Armstrong's iconic rendition of this song.
