A World of Hearts

Welcome to our Creative Life Scrapbooking Pajama Party featuring Theme Packs from Creative Memories! Pop by our Creative Life Facebook Page each hour for a new Theme Pack to be featured! And I’ll be here for the 6:00PM ET hour that is all about some Puppy Love and the #AWORLDOFHEARTS movement that is sweeping across the globe!

For many of us, our routines have changed during this time of social distancing, but for me, I have worked from home for a couple years now, so not too much is different for me. Part of my daily routine is to take our Little Chloe (Beagle/Lab mix) for a walk mid-morning, it’s a nice break in my day. We know the neighborhood inside and out! But these last few weeks have been different. The streets are quieter, people keep their distance, more people say ‘hello’ and there are signs of community and solidarity popping up all over. And the scrapbooker in me thought that this is what I should be documenting, our community coming together in a time of separation.

So, what better kit to use to document these photos? The Puppy Love Theme Pack from Creative Memories, of course! Featuring blues, hearts and paw prints it was perfect for these photos!

Now, as you know, I am a simple scrapbooker, but I thought this layout needed some extra embellishing than I’m used to, to commemorate the #AWORLDOFHEARTS that we are encountering on our walks. So, what better way than to make a shaker heart as a tribute to our essential workers and those who are honouring them. See below for instructions on how to create this layout.
