Frosted Designs - Fabulous Friday & Getty Cricky Simply Sunday - Inspired Heart Layout

Afternoon my fellow scrappers!  I want to share a layout I did for the Barri Gothic in Barcelona.  Here is my layout:


I created this layout for the K Andrew's Simply Sunday Challenge at Getting Cricky - Inspired Heart Challenge.  For this challenge, make an Inspired Heart project (totally up to your interpretation) using any materials you want.  My layout is based on our Honeymoon in Barcelona.  Right now my heart is most inspired by my husband and our pregnancy!  While on our honeymoon in Barcelona in 2009 we became pregnant.  Sadly, we miscarried and then for the next two years tried desperately to become pregnant again.  After yet another miscarriage at the end of 2010 we gave up.  We turned to God and finally realized that we were blessed and happy just to be together. We accepted that the gift of a child was not in the cards for us and let go of our obsession.  The very next month, to our surprise, we learned we were pregnant.  This has inspired me to scrap our honeymoon and the wonderful memories that we made.  What inspires your heart at the moment?


I also played along with the Frosted Designs - Fabulous Friday Challenge! This week the challenge was to add BLING to your card, layout, or project. I used bling on the title, as the arrow, and for the little heart next to the photo of Juan and I.  Don't you just love bling?

Here are a couple of detailed shots from my layout:






Materials Used: paper - Scrapbook Customs; Spain title & bracket stickers - Scrapbook Customs; rickrack - Wrights; sentiment strips - Creative Imaginations; buttons - unknown; barri Gotic title - cricut Lyrical Letters; bling arrow and heart - tLc; bling icons - Me&MyBigIdeas; strolling title stickers - Cosmo Cricket.

Thanks for visiting again!
