Too much on my plate?

So, I don't know if it's the "summertime brain" or what, but I forgot that I'd signed up for a free class at Big Picture Classes earlier this month. I was clicking through different blogs that I like to visit and came upon someone's post that mentionned this class. Since it sounded vaguely familiar, I clicked the link and then remembered: "Hey, I'm suppose to be taking that class!"

*insert rolleyes emoticon here*

So, I checked out the first class (it started August 15th) and upon reading the word, I knew immediately what I wanted to write about and which photo to use (one that I'd taken of Jonah & myself on Canada Day while we waited in line for cotton candy). The layout I made came together amazingly quickly (I love it when that happens!)

The title word "share" was a free download, so I decided to print it out with my journaling right away. After that I matted it, added my photo, patterned paper, a few embellishments and some stitching. Done!

I used Papertrey Ink cardstock (stamper's select white, aqua mist), stamps & die (Postmarks) & Lily Bee patterned paper. I used the crimper again to make the heart, which I'd punched out of a piece of cardstock (cut out from behind the photo ;) ).

Thanks for looking!
