This layout is inspired by the Bird Is The Word's weekly challenge: DISCOVER. I love this pic of me & Ethan because we both looked different here. He wears glasses everyday and I HARDLY take pictures with my glasses on. But this photo is just the other way round, how cute is that? 

I didn't use any sketch for this layout. I am also inspired by Scrapbookers Anonymous February Challenge which is all about hearts & stitching. I love poking holes and hand-stitch a bit of here and there on my layout and heart-shaped embellies is always my favorite, so completing this layout shouldn't be TOO challenging right? I probably stitch more on papers than actual fabric nowadays. 

I started digging into my stash for heart-shaped embellies... and heart-shaped pattern papers

Here's my take on both challenges: Theme: Disover and with some hearts & stitching.

This is also inspired by Yvonne Yam's journalling tips on creating a scene for the layout. Loving the MME's Kraft papers (from Artful Delight January scrapbook kit) and I am trying so so so hard to fit the cute pinwheels somewhere in the layout. The journalling reads: Love is but the discovery of ourselves in others, and the delight in the recognition. ~ Alexander Smith

Have you spotted the white glasses on the right of the pictures? Just because I was wearing glasses in this pictures. 

I also love the stapling ric-rac ribbons recently. 

Okay... here come the stitching part. Stamped the cloud on Doodlebug textured card stock and started stitching. Ethan also helped me with some stitching here. I also painted the vanilla card stock with a wash of blue paint (using distress ink, hehehe)

Tags: D is for Discovery. And the wash of blue color is more obvious here. 

And here come the hearts! 

Thanks for looking...  It's another 10 hours to go, luckily I made it on time to submit this layout. Phew~
