I wanted to share with you, some pieces of my "Love Shrine" for Valentines Day, this first piece was created using paper scraps mounted onto one of those cardboard pieces that comes with your paper, added some embellishments, stuck on a stand and wala... The clip I got at AC Moore after Valentines and painted. The glass is filled with lots of heart shaped papers.





The box is decoupaged with some K & Company patterned papers a wooden, decoupaged heart and some glittery chipboard letters, I lined the inside with felt and keep all of our little love letters, or notes inside.




This started out as a wooden checkers board. The boys lost all the pieces, so I decoupaged it with pretty papers, cut my letters with the cricket and embellished. I love distressing with Ranger Distress inks, put on a stand and a great addition to my little Love shrine or Valentines Decor (which by the way is what this started as and then I just decided it was to pretty to put away and decided to leave out year round.)



Finally, just a little mini I am working on, isnt it pretty? Can't decide what to put in it yet, any ideas?

Behind Blue Eyes

This Layout has been one I have longed to do for some time. The challenge this week at All About Me was to scrapbook the soundtrack of your life. Music has always been extremely important in my life and I have always had theme songs.... I even asked potential dates what song they would describe as their theme song to find out more about them...... Behind Blue Eyes by the Who has always touched me, yes I have blue eyes, but it is so much more than that, as I struggled with Depression, this song spoke for me, it spoke to me..... I used the latest sketch, over at the Tally Blog





Sketchy Thursday's
