What is Love? Blog Hop

Happy Blog Hop Saturday everyone. I hope you're all enjoying the projects so far and getting lots of inspiration along the way. Our host is Dawn (AKA Nurse Viper) at  ScrappyRN. If you didn't start at her blog you can click her link to start at the beginning. She is very talented and  makes beautiful projects. I was so excited when she invited me to join her for this hop. I was also a little nervous. I have never participated in a blog hop before so I hope I do everything right.
Dawn asked us to post projects that are all about Love. What does love mean to you? What do you think of when you think about love? Do you think about family? A special pet? A certain food? Vacation spot? Maybe a favorite hobby?

For my project today I was trying to use some of the cartridges I have, but have never used before. (Shhhhh, don't tell my hubby, but I had 27 cartridges that had never been used). Thanks to Dawn and this blog hop I'm now down to 25 not-yet-used cartridges.
Ok, back to my project. The first thing I think about when I'm asked what Love means to me is my family. While I was looking for pictures to use on my layout I came across these pictures. They were taken the day my younger son was born and he was able to meet his big brother for the very first time.
I used two fonts for the title. The first font is from the Cricut Cartridge called Cuttin' Up, cut at 2". Then I used Boys will be Boys to cut Big brother at 2.75". The baby face, bottle and duck were all cut from Doodlecharms at 2 and 3". The large circles in the background were cut using the George and Basic Shapes cartridge at 12" and 10".
Just for fun I wanted to also add this picture of our cats. I must REALLY love them too because I didn't even get mad when I walked into my scrapbook room and noticed they had pulled out all of this orange filler and threw it everywhere!
Have a great weekend everyone.
Below is a list of all the bloggers participating. If you would like to go back and take another look at any of their blogs you can click on their link and it will take you there, but don't forget to leave a comment before you go. I will be drawing a name from the comments section for some secret blog candy so be sure to leave a way to contact you in case your name is drawn. I would also love it if you would become a follower of my blog if you aren't already.

  1. Cindy, I LOVE IT. What a wonderful layout, in meaning and design. Thank you so much for helping out this weekend.

  2. Very, very nice! I'm about to have my second daughter and think I need to do something similar!

  3. Cute layout and I love the pic of the cats, I have 3 and they always have twine, glitter and such on them at all times. My husband says I should just glue them on a page because they are already "blinged".

    I had to laugh when I saw your cat picture. My cat would do that too except then she would try eating it and I would have a mess to clean up after her! Yuck!
