Eskimo Kisses Layout

This is the love themed layout I did for a challenge for Maryanne's latest online crop. I also challenged myself to fit all five of the pictures for this topic onto a one page spread. I don't normally crop my photos so tightly. After looking and looking at them, I really wanted to come in tight to put the focus on the noses and faces.

The Valentine papers are from a stack by K&Co paper and the 3D heart embellishement is also from them. It's really cool, you hit the button and it lights up. I got it on clearance and it's been in my stash a couple of years so I was excited to use it. The little borders are from a package of paper frills by Doodlebug. The word cloud die cut is also by them. The die cut letters in the title were made with my die cut system by Sizzix.

I realize the name "Eskimo Kisses" might not be politically correct, but that's what I grew up calling rubbing noses so that's what I call it with ER. The pictures are from a few years ago, when she was obessed with her nose. She'd point to her nose and it was my cue to play Eskimo kisses with her. We sing our little made up song and she'd giggle like crazy. We still Eskimo kiss at bedtime every night.
