Lori Whitlock's March Blog Hop with "About Me" Layout

Hello and welcome to Lori Whitlock's April blog hop!  You should be arriving here from Corri's blog or if you are just joining in you can start from the beginning at Lori's blog.  

Today I have a colorful layout sharing my addiction to Converse sneakers using Lori's newest Summer Bliss collection which she designed for Echo Park.  As soon as I saw this fun title by Kolette Hall I knew I had to pull out my camera and document my shoe collection for the record books.  ;)  Lori was super sweet and even designed an adorable pair of sneakers to help put the finishing touch on my page. 

For my title I created a thin shadow which I cut from both yellow paper and two thin sheets of Silhouette Chipboard.  I then set to work gluing all the layers together with my favorite Zig glue pen.  I love the extra dimension and emphasis it gives my title.  

I used the following cutting files available for purchase in Lori's shop:
I also have a digital layout that I made awhile back using Lori's Digital papers and embellishments that I never got around to sharing.

For this one I used a fun sketch by Allison Davis at Scrapbook Generations.

To create my heart shape I temporarily used a random heart and then set to work covering it with a variety of Lori's flowers, buttons and brads.  When I was done I just deleted the original heart.  This was definitely a labor of love given the amount of shadows and layering involved, but I love how it turned out!  :)

To create this layout I used the following digital kits:
In honor of the hop, Lori and Kolette Hall are offering 30% off all their SVG cutting files and fonts today through April 20th. 

Lori also has an awesome giveaway for a $25 gift certificate to one lucky winner. The contest will run April 14th through 21st and the winner will be announced April 21st.
