Too cute!!! Purple and black has been popping up as the Halloween popular color duo this year! Lori's add some bits of orange to not only meet theme requirements but to coordinate with the doggie's outfit!!! And some wee little hearts are being protected by the ghost as well as decorating the witch hat!!! How fun is this travelers notebook layout!!!!

her Instagram address to see more of her wonderful paper-crafting = bandwjc

Don't you just love splashes of mixed media!?!! And it's heartwarming to read that her husband has had military service! (THANK YOU!) Theme requirements' colors show in the patterned paper strip on the left and purple/lavender around the photo and park pass, then with the hearts above the pic and on the USA shape map! Clever! Oh so creatively brilliant!!!

Tremendous 1st design team project for Heart's Quest, Willa!!!


from HQCB owner Becca S:

I met the requirements with 3 various orange-hued hearts and 1 tonal lavender-hued heart! (Technically, 2 purple hearts. Look closely at the stamped image on the bottom left side.) Purple and orange hues are scattered throughout both pages of this Scripture Writing Journal.

  1. Hi. I finished my layout last night but thought I had missed the deadline so I didn't link it up. Turns out I did have time, but I wanted to thank you anyway for your inspiration on the purple and orange hearts. Never would have chosen the papers I did without that! Here's my layout for you to enjoy:
