Hearts, Brackets, and Bows

It's another monotone project!  This week at Dynamic Duos we have two shades of pink...should be easy right?!?!

I found photos from Linnea's Valentine's Day program last February and that they were perfect for the challenge. I had 4 horizontal photos and 1 vertical....time for a block layout.  I loved the layout of the last one I did which you can see here, and since it was for the other daughter I went for it.  Here's the final layout:

I adore how it turned out!  Here's some closer views:

This is the left side.  I paired Chocolate Chip with the pinks and backed the blocks on Very Vanilla.  I had lots of retired patterns in these colors, got to love using old to make room for new!  I love the pearls on the Greeting Card kid image.  In order to make them Rose Red, I put a small amount of Crystal Effects on a paper plate, and dropped in a drop of Rose Red reinker. A paint brush, some drying time and they matched perfectly!

Here is the right side.  It's hard to see but the journal spot has brackets on each side.  It is an embossing folder that is non-SU but there were too many other brackets on the pages not to use it!

Now head over and see what the other ladies have designed and play along with us!
