"Smitten" on you!

Good Morning Authentique Fans! Heather here with a super sweet layout using the new Smitten Collection. I love how versatile this line is, and want to show you how it can move beyond Valentine's Day. I have two sweet little girls, and this makes for some amazingly adorable layouts to share a moment of sweetness between the two of them.
For starters, I used one of the fantastic Kiwi Lane DT Doodles. I love sketches. They take out all of the second guessing, and sometimes, that is exactly what I need. For this layout, I only used one page from the Week 43 Doodle. I started with the Foundations paper, then I used the Brackets for the bottom of the Cupid side panel, cutting straight up from the edges of the Bracket. I then used Paisley Place on the reverse of the Cupid paper.
I then cut a larger strip of Written, and topped it with a thin strip of the reverse. Then I layered pieces from the Components Die Cuts using a Maya Road Twine Cording as the banner ribbon.
I love tucking the little Details stickers throughout the layout. They add just the little something that this layout needed. 
All of the edges are inked using the Prima Marketing Chalk Edger in Rose Bud. It was just the perfect shade of pinkish rose. 
I also layered another thin strip of Written on the bottom of the page to finish it off. Another moment captured, and all under an hour! All thanks to the amazing Smitten Collection, and Kiwi Lane DT Doodles!

Authentique Paper: Smitten Collection: Cupid, Written, Foundations, Components, Details
Other Supplies: Kiwi Lane Designer Templates (Paisley Place, Brackets), Maya Road Twine Cording in Cherry Red, Prima Chalk Edger in Rose Bud, Neenah Cover (Solar White)
