For this hop we will be featuring the letter "D". This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment, whatever the crafter has chosen as their "D" element will be featured in their post.

For my letter "D", I decided to use the Cricut Artbooking cartridge on the letter D key. I think making this "Together" layout using Heartstrings is quite fitting being that this Hop falls on Valentine's Day don't you?! Last year my hubby and I had planned to enjoy a Valentine's Day lunch together because it fell on his Friday off, but I was sick and my loving hubby took me to the doctor and then that evening took our sons to basketball practice while I stayed home curled up in a blanket on the couch. Not very romantic I know, but when you have been together 20 years it's not about the flowers and candy and cards on a specific day like it is made up to be in commercials, it is about the love you share together. I don't know if you noticed, but I mentioned "together" 3 times in those last few sentences. This year was again my hubby's Friday off, but he had to run into work briefly to get some things and I got some things done around the house and ran to the school to put eye drops in my son's eyes. He is the one getting over a sickness this year! So hubby and I met for lunch on Friday and today for Valentine's day we will be sharing the loving day exchanging cards & candy as a family and then going out to dinner. My love is my family being together, so after I print pictures of our day, I will be adding them to this layout. I hope you enjoy my creation!
Here is a close up to show the Together title, I backed the letters with the new White Shimmer Trim. And a close up of the "Love these moments" Complements collage.
This is the letter D page out of the Artbooking handbook to show you the layout that I created based upon.
