Still Holding Hands - SketchNScrap Inspired By 1

Here's another layout today - this one is based on the first Inspired By challenge over at the Sketch N Scrap blog. (It's based on a layout by Stephanie Ho.)
 
I really like the long title on this sketch and knew it would work for this photo I took of my sister and brother-in-law a few years ago.

I have some new wood veneer pieces that I'm enjoying using - I backed the rectangle one with a piece of red cardstock so it would show up better. I really wanted to use and show off that heart paper, too, but it was only 6"x6". I ended up cutting it in half to make it look like a longer piece.

I had lots of FUN with this sketch. Have you been inspired by any sketches lately?

I love those little wooden hearts with the paper - such a neat idea to echo these. Heart-warming layout!

Still holding hands is perfect for those hearts. I often cut papers to make them look longer. The backed wood veneer really makes the negative spaces stand out.
