D-Lish inspiration

I feel in love with this month's D-lish Scraps inspiration board the moment I saw it.  So much to love about it...  I was particularly inspired by:  the colour palette, the crocheted square, the string of hearts...

This is my layout:

I got my idea for the heart garland from the Cosmo Cricket blog - although mine is hand cut and I used embroidery thread:

Lime Tree Creations crochet motifs
Dream Street Delight - Relish patterned paper 
American Crafts Thickers - Dacquiri foam numbers

It's not at all my usual style to cut out photographs, but I wanted to play around and do something a little different and whimsical for J-girl's birthday layout.  I'm still not sure about it ~ but she loves it and that's all that counts :)
