Grandma Mar Layout using Fancy Free and Cut Files!

I love this sweet photo of my daughter snuggled up with her grandma. We don't get to see her too often, so the time spent with Grandma Mar is precious.

I used the April sketch from the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine along with this Shattered Glass Overlay FREE cut file from the Bits and Pieces Lab blog as the base for my layout. Of course the wonderful Fancy Free papers by Pink Paislee were perfect behind my photo and the cut file. I love how the papers match my photo!

 The hearts from the ephemera package matched the papers I used, so I placed them inside the cut file openings after using foam dots to pop up my photo to add a little dimension.

I used my Cricut Explore to also cut the title before adding a graduated layer of Distress Inks in Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover.

It was easy to fussy cut some of the flowers and circles from the paper pad and layer them on the bottom corner of my page before adding a clear embellishment.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope your week is filled with lots of happiness :)
