Today I am so excited to join in on The Polkadot Door Blog Hop and Inspiration Challenge! For this month’ inspiration, I created a hybrid layout about love 🙂

I started this layout as a digital layout in Photoshop and then printed it out onto two 8.5 by 11 inch cardstocks. Here I have used a Satin paper made by Red River paper, and let me tell you their paper is very easy to use and wonderful! I used a 66lb Polar Satin cardstock to print my photos onto, and it turned out so beautiful. I usually have to meddle with my printer settings quite a bit before I get satisfactory photo quality, but with this paper it was super simple.

I loved the owl element in the inspirational image, and so added two owls in the bottom of my layout; as if to represent me n the husband 🙂

Here is a close up look at the layout…
