Wanna see what I made??
I decided to make a layout about some of my current favorite things.
Or as I say on this layout, "Currently I have much love for these things..."
{P.S. this is also the layout i made for the Pencil Lines design team call. didn't make it but it's all good! their sketches are still among my favorites! and i used the Truly Scrumptious kit from Noel Mignon to make this! another favorite: kits!!}

Great page Gretchen! I also applied to Pencil Lines but didn't make it but I have to say their roster is AMAZING this year!! Maybe we will make it to their Guest DT? Wishful thinking on my part. :)

How fantastic the ways you used hearts on your almost monochromatic LO. And the clustering of LOVEs 'pop' against the background so well.
