Scraptastic Pinterest Monday - Heartbeats kit

Hi everyone! Last week Leanne and I teamed up for another Pinterest Monday on Scraptastic Club's blog to bring you some inspiration based on these Pinterest images. We both used the awesome Heartbeats kit and add-on:

I really love these Pinterest images, especially the one with the letters! So I decided to start right there, using the letters as an inspiration for my title. I got out the Freckled Fawn wood veneer alphas from the Heartbeats add-on and used these as a mask. I sprayed some gold color mist over them and removed them again. Love the result!

The title is about my daughter, who fell in love with the United States at the age of 9 when we spent our very first summer vacation there. After that vacation she would regularly tell us that one time she would love to live in the US. We kept telling her that it wasn't very likely that that was going to happen, but she proofed us wrong! Right now she's living in Louisiana as a foreign exchange student and she loves it! She left last August and won't return until June next year! I can't begin to tell you how proud I am of her!

And some more close-ups: isn't this Maggie Holmes deer clip from the add-on kit super cute?!

And then this one: I don't know if you noticed, but the background paper is actually a map and I adhered the Amy Tangerine heart sticker and the flair with the hear right above Louisiana, then I also used the puffy arrow stickers from Evalicious to indicate the place on the map where my daughter is.

If you want to see what Leanne did with these Pinterest images then hop over to Scraptastic's blog! I'm sure you'll love her page!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
