Heartfelt Wednesday's *Missing You...*

So today for Heartfelt Wednesday, I wanted to share with you a very special layout that I made in memory of my daughter's loss of her boyfriend last month. This is a photo of Nick and Erica a few months back and it is one of very few photos I have of them together. They looked so happy together and it still is a great loss to everyone who knew and loved him. So I titled the layout "Missing You" since that is how we all feel.... The beautiful papers are from Heartfelt Creations called "posy patch" and they are just lovely. I fussy cut out lots of flowers and I added lots of diecuts. 


Here you can see the "posy patch" paper of the bird and flowers. There are great stamps if you want to color the bird and flowers a different color. However, I wanted to use the papers to show the beautiful pre-made colors for you. Behind the bird is a diecut called "timeless amour" it is a beautiful heart that is a must have in your collection for all kinds of occasions. 


The sentiment is a stamp from "classic messages" I just love the font and I layered it with "fancy framed tags two"...the bling is from ZVA and you can also buy it through Heartfelt Creations.


I framed the photo in teal and then used "romantic rectangles" in black cardstock. You can also see I stamped flowers in teal for a bit of contrast. There are "vintage floret" flowers stamped on the "posy patch" paper and I added gala glitz in the centers. 


It has been a really long time since I last made a 12 x 12 layout because I have seemed to have lost my mojo for them for a while....however, I am so glad it came back to make this photo special. 
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop by Heartfelt Creations Blog for new projects from our DT.
