Oh, my!!! Sorry it took me so long to get back here, after the aaaawful storm and both kids destroying the house, I needed to catch up on housework, laundry and all the little things we moms do to keep the house nice and neat :)
But I am back! LoL! Valentine's Day is approaching and a lot of people feel "iffy" about it, but I l♥ve it! It is commercial holiday, but so many people don't express their love verbally and this is the perfect day to do so. And who doesn't love pressies (especially the chocolate ones .....).
I like pink & red, so I seized my moment to decorate with these two bright colors. I made a lovely garland spelling "Happy ♥ Day". I will update the close-up pictures as soon as my camera charges, that poor thing died while shooting the pics today. I've been using her daily - working on my Project Life by Becky Higgings. What an excellent idea. I've been loving it!!!
No Stamps used. Papers are from last year's (or maybe even older) Valentine's DCWV's collection. Hearts are cut using Spellbinders. Little middle border is by Martha Stewart's Tiny hearts scalloped edge (yep, I just made that name up). Pink crepe paper, pink ribbons and sparkly yarn. Nothing too difficult of too fancy - although, I think it looks pretty fancy ;)
I've got those cute golden angels at Michaels. I might be coming back for more. They are just so darn cute! I cut out the letters with my Cricut and Lyrical Letters cartridge, sparkled them up with Zing Embossing Powder - sparkling red, few Prima roses.
