Hope is the thing with feathers 
that perches in the soul and sings the tunes 
without the words and never stops at all.
- Emily Dickinson

Hello everyone!

Its something unusual today,
a quiet morning,
still breeze, 
grey feel,
with a cup of coffee I think 
sitting by my window
and the very first word that strikes me is "HOPE"
Hence I decided to create a layout on Hope!

This amazing paper collection by Heidi swapp is to die for. 
I love the pinks and the teals with a bit of black and the florals patterns. 

The theme being hope, I choose the following papers
with floral elements with pinks and grays.
(oh these patterns are amazing!)
Decisions, decisions, decisions!
Which paper goes at the top?
Which paper goes at the bottom?
Which paper dwells in between?
(after a bit of thinking...)

Using the amazing super sturdy Tonic super trimmer
I have trimmed the following papers according to the sizes mentioned below.
(12" x 12" - Base)
no need to trim
(11.5" x 11.5"- Centre)
(11" x11" - Top)
I loved the floral pattern paper to be on the top.

Lets begin assembling now.
Using the super red tacky tape - especially 24mm is excellent to stick the papers.

Align the 3 papers in the centre as shown in the image below.
(There are several ways to arrange these papers)
(The red tacky tape is an amazing bubble free solution to stick your papers)

After having pasted the following papers its time to make the photo matt.
I trimmed the white paper with 3.5 inches by 5inches and gave it a backing with the gorgeous pink paper from the Heidi Swapp collection to make it sturdy and attractive
Again the bubble free 6mm red tacky tape to stick the photmatt.

Viola! now its time for the icing.
using the amazing and super cool
(These beauties are a must, they are amazing and can do 
wonders in beautifying your projects and add those 
little emotion touches and boost up your page. )
I choose the following elements to work with.

I was playing around with these gorgeous elements,
and landed up with the following combinations.
(There are several ways to arrange these elements)
I really loved the way this looks.
Hence I settled with this.
The  Neutral Shapes  are just magnificent,
with the little icing, if added a cherry it enhances your project even more. 

The Wycinanka - Chipboard hearts are so gorgeous, 
I loved it original colour and the texture hence 
I decided to use it and add little earthy feel to my layout
I have pasted the sentiment and the using .

and its ready!
I must say scrapbooking is the best way to preserve your memories.
