LOVE- Creative Embelishments February Challenge

The Creative embelishmnets team have a great February challenge.
I was inspired by the softness of the image, and the time aspect as well. The twist was having white space. So I had this picture of my dad when he was in the hospital 3 years ago. I wanted it to be soft and also it takes me back in time, so I felt it was just perfect for this challenge. I used the heart shaped frame & the word LOVE from CE and for the time, gears element a die cut from Kaiser Crafts.
Here is a closer look at the title that was embosed with ZINK glitter (OMG a wonderful discovery from my friend Caroline's stash... Now I need this)
The story behind this picture is that my dad was dying and the nurses at the hopital let us bring him my dog Maya for a visit. My Dad just loved my dog and she loved my Dad. The trick was we needed to hide her to pass the security gards at the entrance. So my husband and the boys hid her in a Gym bag and she collaborated perfectly. Not a sound or peep her whole time at the Hospital. We were in a Private room, so it was fine. The nurses came to see her and just loved to see the smile on my Dad's face. This is probably one of my favorite memories of his last days. I truly miss him...Can't believe that it's been 3 years since he's been gone.
Here is the challenge:
The challenge is as it typically is….be inspired by at least 1 element in the picture below and please let us know what you were inspired by in your post. The twist is white space. That is always a hard  thing for me and my cluttered mind. Do not forget to read the revised guidelines below the inspo picture.
Twist: White space
Thanks for the challenge ladies... I am very please with how my page turned out.
Have a great day !
