Mohawk Love

 So, when all the hustle and bustle is over and you find yourself with an overabundance of Christmas scrapping supplies, what do you do with them? Use them of course! 
Kristin asked us to make something Valentine's theme and while this isn't exactly Valentine's I figured it was pretty darn close. So here's a little Mohawk Love for you:


 I started with a kraft background, put some mist on it and then added papers from DCWV's Jolly Whimsy stack. Yep, Christmas, but look how perfectly they fit into this love theme!


For the diamond mat, all I did was cut along the design of the paper. Then I cut some of the smaller diamonds out and added them to my layout for embellishment. You can see one in the closeup above popped out of the mat using foam adhesive.
I'm a washi addict and I love using it to frame my layouts. Gives it a great finished look, don't you think?

Do you have extra letter stickers leftover? Yep, the entire title is from Echo Park's Christmas Reflections line. Last I added my journaling and my date with a date stamp. (love them!) I used a sketch by Lanette Erickson from 3 Scrappy Boys for this layout.

Thanks for looking and happy scrapping!
