I love when we receive a new paper line in the store that I immediately know I have the perfect picture to use with it.

When Be My Valentine from We R Memory Keepers arrived I immediately thought of a sweet photo that I had of my nieces, Danielle and Sarah. It was taken in the summertime at my parent's house a few years ago, when they were just adorable little girls! (They are now 14 and 17 and still adorable, but they are also teenagers - need more be said? lol)

So this past weekend, I had some time to scrapbook and I did up this layout. I based it on a sketch by Becky Fleck and I had lots of fun adding all the little details...

like lots of layering, some machine stitching...

a doily from my stash and a hand made flower! I was even able to add some hand-dyed ribbon and a button (my personal signature!).

I adore my boys and I love making up layouts with their pictures on them. But, it is always such a treat for me to be able to scrapbook pink for a change!

Thanks for looking ~


  1. So lovely Joanne. I love all the details that make it a wonderful layout!

  2. This is simply divine!

    You should consider making that layout a kit for the rest of us. :o)

    P.S. Kassidy loves it! She gives it two thumbs up.

  3. Thanks Lyn! Give Kassidy a hug for me:)

  4. Lovely layout all the little touches.

  5. You added so many special details to make this a precious layout and keepsake. Lovely papers, but more lovely is your special touches.

  6. Such a cute layout... love how you used the doily!!!

  7. This is the beautiful layout I was mentioning to you in the store today. We R Memory Keepers linked to it from their Facebook page. Here's what they posted:

    "Another great layout by a scrapbook blogger. Joanne (who's blog is Scrapping Outside the Lines) has created a beautiful layout using our Be My Valentine collection. Take a look at it here…"

    It's gorgeous Joanne!!! I love it!!!
