Bingo with Use your Stuff

Happy Monday and welcome to use your stuff BINGO challenge
I used: brads, pink, hearts and ribbon to create this layout
of my husbands Aunt Diane funeral. 
I was inspired by  Scrap-n-sketch # 122
and paired it with my latest TSR kit fancy Pants " sweet nothings"
The papers are perfect for this challenge as it has the Pink and Red for the challenge.
I never thought I'd go with a valentine style paper to document a funeral but it works because Diane loved my children like they were her own grand kids.  She'd take them out for special one on one dates, taught them to crochet and tend roses.  She was truly special

I went with a solid piece to back my title work as the paper is rather busy.
I used multiple die cuts here: Wonderful banner, heart and don't forget.  I also have the brads holding it all in place

for my last two bingo items I have the different hand cut and wire clip heart as well as grey ribbon and a paper ribbon die cut for the bottom cluster
Thanks for stopping by to take a peak.  For more inspiration stop by Use your Stuff to see the other designers creations.
