CWC Crops of Luv Hop - Day 2

Welcome to the, Crops of Luv Blog Hop. This month our designers chose to create layouts for the Crops of Luv Organization. If you came here from Natt then you are in the right place, if you need to start from the beginning, then just head over to CWC.

Crops of Luv works hand-in-hand with the Make-A-Wish Foundation and creates scrapbooks for families who have children facing life-threatening illnesses. Our hop will focus on creating 12 x 12 Scrapbook double page LOs using these themes: Princesses, Pirates, Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, Summer Fun (e.g. swimming), Christmas (yes, they have Christmas every Thursday at "Give Kids the World"), or general Disney themes.

Crops of Luv has some specific guidelines for the layouts. They need to include a journaling block or tag and mats for 3 4 x 6 pictures on each page. They also do not want the photo mats permanently adhered to the page. That way they can flip them whichever way they need to.

We hope you will enjoy our creations! We would love for you to participate. You can make a two-page layout following the parameters outlined above and mail it directly to Crops of Luv c/o Roberta Baker, 11424 S. Pawnee Circle, Phoenix, AZ 85044. Since this blog hop is also a challenge, be sure to link your project to CWC/PCW.

Here's my layout today:

A princess layout.

I cut the title out on the Imagine using the Princess title from the Once Upon A Princess cart and filling it with a pattern from the Best Friends Imagine cart. The heart at the end was made with purple bakers twine.. I drew the heart the way I wanted it with a Zig glue pen and then put the twine over that.

The crown is cut from the Birthday Cakes cart out of yellow shimmer card stock and put on a pop dot.

The 2 pink mats are for journaling and were cut with some scalloped scissors. The loopy twine boarders were made the same way as the heart at the end of the title.

This princess is cut from the Best Friends Imagine cart and I cut out some of the extra layers (the crown & dress) and put pop dots under them to make her stand out a bit more.

If you get lost along the way, please be sure to head back to CWC and start from there. Be sure to head over to CWC and leave a comment for a chance to win some blog candy and to link your own Crops of Luv creation. Now you can head over to Larelyn. Thanks so much for being a part of our hop.

Thanks for stoppin' by and have a great day!
