So I came up with a layout.

Cartridges Used:  George and Basic Shapes--- Photo Mats and Hearts (Hearst were welded using the Design Studio), and Create a Critter--- Title, Flowers, and Love Bug

1/2 inch strips of black paper was cut with my cricut trimmer.

Used a black marker for title, hearts, and frames. (I think I might have overdone it!!!)

Used my new pink ATG gun to adhere everything.  I love it!!! so much easier than the others i have purchased.
