Heartbreaker Layout

Hello!  Today I am posting a layout that I created for my daughter, Ruby.  Just a little background about her, she is in the 6th grade and 12 years old.  Her dad and I hear her talk about her "boyfriends" all the time.  Girls at this age this age really have no idea.  Maybe she will look back at this time in her life and smile, when she sees this many years from now.  I started with two printed papers from the Notebook Doodles Imagine cartridge and then went wild.
The title and the heart/shadow were cut from the Indie Art Cricut cartride, the pocket was cut from the Old West cartridge and I cut the graphic boy and recycle arrows from one of the sheets I printed from the Notebook Doodles Imagine cartridge.  I used a portion of a piece of Notebook printed paper from that same cartridge that I punched with a composition edge to make the journaling area in the bottom left corner. 
Above you can see some of the details of the heart.  I embossed the black heart with D'Vine Swirls and then chalked the embossing with coordinating colors.  This really looked good, if I must say so myself.  The wings are chipboard thats edges were inked in pink and then I just put some chucky glitter all over them.  I cut to picture mattings from a My Creative Die, one from cardstock but the other from vellum.  I ran the vellum matting through a few different embossing folders.  Below you can see the more of the detail of the pocket and the graphic boy.  I placed a red chipboard heart on the boy.  Then, I used some coordinating studs to embellish the pocket and I added eyelets to look like rivets on jeans. 
Inside the pocket I made some tags that she can write what she has learned or she can list all the boys that she has left with broken hearts.  I thought she would like that.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the layout.
