Let Your Heart Sing - Susan K. Weckesser + Zeus and Zoe


Hi! I found some extra time this month and created this layout based on the August sketch from Once Upon A..Sketch. The journaling theme this month is "The Men in our Lives." I snapped this photo of my sweetheart while on vacation last month. I'm lucky to have have a husband whose many talents include playing guitar and singing. My life has a fabulous soundtrack! Relaxing on the beach in front of a fire is one of my favorite things to do and it's even better with a moonlight serenade.


I salvaged this fabric guitar from one of my daughters old shirts. I tucked a coiled guitar string behind the photos.


I had a lot of fun dressing up this patterned paper with stenciled designs. I mounted my layout on a piece of Core'dinations Tillie Dot Spotted Cardstock for a fun textured frame.


I used The Crafter's Workshop Mini Beaded Curtain and Mini Positive stencils with Faber-Castell Stamper's Big Brush Pens to add colored accents to my background.

Here is the sketch if you want to play along. You have until the end of the month to link up your layout.


The lucky August winner will receive a prize from the main sponsor Zeus and Zoe!

I used several items from my Zeus and Zoe Kit as well as my favorite patterned papers, stencil and stamps from Susan K. Weckesser. Susan partners with several fantastic manufacturers. I also used supplies from Core'dinations and The Crafter's Workshop.
