Melanie says, "I couldn’t help but want to dig into this gorgeous Valentine’s line a bit early, so I decided to do a layout about my oldest son. He’s changing so fast these days and especially hates having his photo taken, so this rare shot of him smiling (pre-braces) was begging to be scrapped. I’ve been having a love affair with tags lately, and decided to use the ‘Bits’ tags as a frame for my photo and then in turn, use them as spaces for my journaling. I pop dotted the tag that says ‘My heart is bursting at the seams’ and added the plaid ribbon to highlight it and make it stand out from the others.
