SYTYCS#13 - Love

I made it to round 13 over at Colorful Creations - So You Think You Can Scrap! It is now done to just 16 of us!  Here is my submission for this week:

This weeks challenge was to use the following sketch and: You MUST use ALL of the following!
  1. Use only PURPLE papers (printed, cardstock, or home made) - I used three purple papers
  2. All embellishments must be BLACK OR WHITE (all of my embellishments are white)
  3. 2 Hand made flowers - I used two handmade Yo-Yo's
  4. 2 Different Stamps (your flowers will not count) - I used a jounaling stamp on the lower left, and 2 heart stamps along the bottom.
  5. 2 Hearts - I used one on the right of the word Love and one on the left of the journaling block.
  6. 2 Different Ribbons I used a floral ribbon behind the photos and a second under the sub-title "more".
  7. Faux Stitiching (hand drawn) - I used faux stitching in black ink around the photos, similar to the sketch.
  8. Bling (clear bling will be accepted) - I used clear bling in the shape of the paranthesis on either side of the large photo and additional little corner bling on the "Love" title.
  9. Feathers - I used white feathers on the title behind the Yo-Yo.
  10. Stay true to sketch (using a 12 x 12  OR 8.5 x 11 double page layout) - I used a double page 12x12 spread and matched the sketch.

I also played along with Apron Strings - March Madness day 17. This challenge was to take inspiration from the following photos: 

They inspired me to use this years Easter photos. Maddie with her colorful eggs in her adorable Easter dress. What more inspiration do you need? 

Here are a couple of close-up photos:

The purple for those photos with her aqua dress is perfect. Really makes her pop right off those pages! Very nice.
