February Calendar

at Bugaboo Stamps

Ava Heart is the new release sweetie at Bugaboo Stamps.  You know how you start with a great vision and it starts fizzling away?  Well, that's what happened here, but a mistake in measurements lead me to my final project below in which I am extremely satisfied.

The pic of my 2 boys is from several years back on a cruise.  It was our first cruise!  I wanted a nice pic of my boys together and this is what I got????  My eldest obviously had too many mojitos before the pic was taken.

I used my Cameo to print and cut and do shadows around the image. Head over to Catch The Bug and see other projects using "Ave Heart."
