Celebrating Love

Hello!! I am finally back...it's been a busy couple of weeks! I have been working on this LO for a while now and I finally finished it.

For Valentine's Day we go to a moonlight jazz concert at an old estate by our house. It's so much fun...you get to take your own picnic blankets, food, candles, etc and just lay out. I go with my cousins and we usually end up drinking the night away and eating some yummy crepes. And amazingly, this year we had a cold day in February here in the sunshine state!

My favorite part of the LO is the little picture book that I made...I sewed it together using a really neat scallop function on the sewing machine that I discovered! I made the tabs out of chip board and just added some sewing, rhinestones, and button. And... I finally got to use some grungeboard! I painted it brown and traced the swirl marks with stickles.



How the LO was made:
Title "Celebrating": Sizzlits alphabet and hearts- Stamped cart
Title "LOVE": Zooballoo cart
Tall flowers: Stamped cart
Chipboard and felt hearts: Cuttlebug hearts
Ribbon: American Crafts
PP: Stemma- Lots of Love
Cardstock- Bazzil Basics
