CAS-ual Fridays Challenge # 89

 Are you in the love song mood? Well, this week's CAS-ual Friday's Challenge is "Love Song". Yes, any love songs that inspired you with your CAS project is a GO!!

This is my first time to make a layout (instead of a card)  for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge! 
 You make me smile
I was inspired by this song "You make me smile"! This song is so sweet, heartwarming and very American :) After all, my grandniece IS American.
My grandniece's photo speaks volumes! She makes me smile :)
 Ding-->if choosing a wide varieties of pattern paper overwhelms you, you can stick with three--one large, one medium and one small sizes of paper. In this layout, I only used one sheet of pattern paper!

Please link up your CAS project by noon, Feb. 14, Thursday (eastern Time) to CAS-ual Fridays. I can't wait to see what love songs inspire you!

Yesterday was the Facebook e-mail acceptance party for the Birthday Creations (Vol. 8) from Paper Crafts. For the fun of it, I did a little tweaking with Ryan's photo :)

Indeed, I got one card picked for the publication! Yay!
Thanks for stopping by!

You're really good at layouts, Virginia--this is just adorable & showcases that little doll! Congrats on another card picked. Guess that means I can send my entries to someone else--maybe next time.
