First DT layout for Scrap Africa

Hi everyone! TGIF! :)
I'm back to share my first layout as DT member for Scrap Africa.  My beautiful friend Lynette Jacobs has set the challenge this month and it's a great one!  Use the following picture as inspiration and create a project where hearts are your main accent. Pretty easy hey?  You can check out the reveal and all the stunning layouts from the other DT members here.
Here is my take on the challenge.  I've had great fun designing my heart overlay on my Silhouette machine! I've used my DT pack from The Scrapbook Store which contains the beautiful My Minds Eye Collectable 'Unforgettable' collection.   The photo is of my DD and my friend's 3 year old daughter. They have great fun when they get together.

A close up of my overlay. I've added pattern paper behind some of the hearts. My title was also cut using my Silhouette machine. :)

Just a few flowers cut from one of the sheets of paper.  I've added a few enamel dots to each flower.
 A strip of washi tape and stickers from this collection.
You have until the 28th of February to get your entry in!  Just add the link to your completed project to the bottom of the blog post here.
That's all for this beautiful Friday afternoon. Thank you so much for visiting my blog.  Hope you have a fantastic weekend.
Until next time.

Marelize, congratulations on having a good relationship with your Silhouette. Mine is still in its box 'cause I'm a bit nervous about learning a new toy. :)
However, you've inspired me to drag that thing out because I totally adore your heart overlay.
Gorgeous work!
