Feb 14th Sketch reveal at Stuck On U Sketches/Blog Hop with Scraps of Elegance/Darkness DT

If you have come here from Lisa Novogrodski's blog then you are on the right track. If not, the blog hop list is below. 

Hello everyone! Welcome to a cross promo blog hop from Stuck on U Sketches
and Scraps of Darkness and Scraps of Elegance Design Teams!

February 14-16
midnight to midnight

We've all created layouts based off our February 14th sketch
and the Scraps of Darkness teams have created theirs with the awesome kits from their shop!

And here is my layout with close up pics: 

Titled: Such A Lovely Day
This is a pic of my husband and me. In celebration of Valentine's Day I thought I'd go all mushy on you. Lol
I created this layout using papers from my C'est Magnifique KOTM. These gorgeous papers are from the the Believe line at Manor House Creations. 

Here is a closeup. I did some hand stitching, and ink distressing. I also inked and sprayed the paper with glimmer mist.
