Bimini Moose Challenge - Anything Goes With Optional Twist - Use a Fav Embellishment!

Happy Tuesday! I'm back today to bring you another Pocket Scrapbooking challenge over at BIMINI MOOSE!
Our challenge this time is...
Pocket Scrapbooking - ANYTHING GOES
With an optional twist!
Use Your Favourite Embellishment

Our challenges run for 2 weeks. This one will close on Mon, February 16, @ Noon Eastern time - giving us time to pick a Top 3 for the post the following day with our Next Challenge.

For my Pocket Page layout this week I chose to scrap some pics with a HEART theme from last Valentine's Day, 2014. I love looking back and seeing how much the girls have grown! I used a picture of one of the candies they got on the 6x12 side of one of the pocket pages, layered with other Valentine stickers, cards and papers from my stash. The Love postage stamp is cut from a 12x12 page with lots of Valentine prints on it. I actually pulled out my Postage Stamp Scissors to cut the border on this! Do you still have all those decorative scissors?! One of my favourite embellishments to use right now is Washi tape! Who doesn't love it?! I used some rainbow striped tape from October Afternoon on both of my pages - the colours in this tape go with everything!

I used some stickers from an old Stampin' Up kit I had and really like the look of them layered directly on the pictures.

I used stamps from the Be Mine stamp set by Pretty Cute Stamps on this journalling card.

Aren't these tickets the cutest?! They are from Fancy Pants Design and were included with a Simon Says Stamp Card Kit from last year. I'm so glad I'm getting to use more of them!

I had lots of fun with this layout! I love looking through my stash and finding ways to use things I've had for a while.
