Challenge #39: Love is in the air

It's that time of the year again ladies...Valentines Day!
I want to know is this a "holiday" that you celebrate?
For me it is not. i don't do this day and never have. I think it is silly.
Not everyone is like me and without further ado i want to see some traditional v-day and rules other than those...break out those colors and scrap whatever may be tickling your fancy or better yet make something for someone else..maybe your significant other, a child's teacher, or just some home decor..whatever it is be sure to link so we can ohhh and ahhhh


These are 2 birthday/anniversary books i made for Mason's teachers. i figured this was perfect and he is so excited to give it to them.
This was using 2 different kits from Noel Mignon.
One is sugar cookie and the other is Love Song (sold Out)

Here's my additions to creating a love vibe..I took one of those dinner boxes and decorated it to hold all your special valentine notes:

Here's also a little card to inspire you to create one for your valentine sweetie:

I don't really to V-Day either...not sure why, but hey that's how I roll :)
That doesn't stop me from loving to create with red and pink though - FAR from it. The below layout shows a picture of my MIL and myself. You always hear of woman not getting on with the MIL's but mine is ace. We are like best buddies and even go on holiday together!
The background is a package sheet from Prima by the way. In it came one of their transparencies and I thought it was too nice to throw. It has the same consistency and colour of Kraft cardstock.


i've had these letters laying around since the end of 2007. finally i've put them to use! it's a 12x16 canvas and the corrugated cardboard is left from a freight box from walmart. paper is making memories (fairly new). the mme and the sassafras are from last year and possibly the year before. ;) you can see close-ups of the project on my blog if you care to make one for yourself! (getting everything to stay on the canvas was the hardest part--LOTS of glue!)

I don't celebrate it either. I would rather have a new pair of shoes than a bouquet of flowers. One year, my husband did bring me a bouquet of cookies...yum! He gets me. Here is my pinktastic banner:

i just found your site, love the title! I have lots of crap that needs to be used in my scrapping area.

Check my blog here. This was made using a TLC kit (now Breezy Design) that I get shipped montly and never use, I added extra embellies and love end result. Now to find pics to put in it!
