So let's start with Mindi's Inspiration:

This is one of the last layouts of my FINALLY finished, only black and white wedding album. I cut the hearts and then using inspiration from pinterest, I embossed them with a swirl patter and ran silver ink over the raised edges. I then added eyelets and ribbon and used the, as my 'tags' from the sketch. I really enjoyed working with this great sketch and I'm sure you will too!
Peace, love and scrappiness to all!

and this is the prize for this stop on the blog hop from Mindi!!

So for this part of the Blog Hop... Mindi doesn't have an active blog so just comment below and jump on to the next Blog... :)
