Braces and some Love

The sketch this week from The Scrappiest.  It is a new month so there is a new prize.  Be sure to come over and play along.
 
For my layout I broke into my January Scrap Shotz kit.  Full of American Crafts goodies!  Yum!  I used my Cricut to cut out the background circle so this fits the Practical Scrappers challenge this week.
 
This is Tenia's second challenge:
 
For this card, I used some papers in my Scarlet Lime kit and the Slice Design card - Music and Dance.  I also made this for the Paper Sundae challenge - a valentine themed card.  This fits doesn't it?  It is also for the Design Dollies challenge - red, black and one neutral.  Do you like my 'spot lighting'?  just playing around with photoshop, thought it would suit the card, hehehe.

I absolutely adore your layout! It's so happy! I love that your daughter isn't bummed about braces and is smiling brightly. All the details work together wonderfully. Excellent work.

Your love card is wonderfully romantic. Love that red paper you used and the silhouette!

Love the layout, Laurel! Cute elements. Even cuter photos. Love that big smile.

Your card is awesome, too. The silhouette shape is perfect against that great paper. Fun!
