Stick It Down April DT Layout (Single Page Team)

Hello Lovelies

It's Stick It Down time once again and can I just say how much I really REALLY loved this month's single page sketch!!  

My first thought was to use a cut file.  Pretty sure there are several out there which have flowers already built into a heart.  I decided instead to roughly machine stitch a heart and fussy cut flowers.
 
The sketch reminded me of a wedding or anniversary layout so I opted to scrap our 20th wedding anniversary, which was a case of Murphy's Law at work if ever I saw one!   Read the journaling! 😂
 
Seriously - you just can't make this stuff up!  And I'm often in these situations so I just laugh about them now.

Embellies

I used the Hello Today and Quarantined collections both by Simple Stories.  Great colours and a vintage vibe which reminded me of our wedding and played beautifully with three different papers by October Afternoon which I fussy cut and used to create the cluster along with some stickers of the "Rona" bug, some chipboard shapes and brads.  The plastic bow is an old Dear Lizzy one!
 

 
Can you believe only the mint green mat behind the photo is the only paper that was a single 12 x 12 pattern on both sides?  All the others were either cut apart cards or the B-Side of a cut apart sheet.  I punched the individual "Ronas" from the back of a card I didn't think I was going to use.
 
 
I chopped and re glued the month card and circled the date which is a sort of a nod to our wedding album where I'd try use the numbers 7 and 10 on each page.
 

 

Journaling

I deliberately chose the ledger paper which was the B side to one of the Hello Today cut apart sheets.  Perfect for writing and reminded me of a hospital chart.  The inside of the heart gave me plenty of room for a longer story.
 
 

Title

I used a card from one of the cut apart sheets as the title and a subtitle with small stickers from the sticker book on a clipboard from the chipboard sheet.
