My Think Pink Challenge Projects

Hello Friends,

I am SO sorry I abandoned you like that! Remember those errands? Well one thing led to another, and then it was off to dance lessons of which we don't get home from until 10 pm...and the time flew by without me having one minute to play until this afternoon.

Today I finally had an hour or so to play in my (MESSY!) studio...I made one 12x12 LO, and one card for my This Weeks Inspiration Challenge. Here is some more lovely pink inspiration (from Flickr):

I went with a Valentine theme, because, duh, it justified eating valentine candy!
And worked within the Inspiration Challenge for this week (see information in previous post).

(full disclosure: I ate 4 heart-shaped York peppermint patties, yummy; and 3 kinda yucky sweeties conversational hearts, while crafting)

Both projects were quick and easy. I just did my usual plan-less, wingin'-it job, but I kept it simple. (re easy/fast)

*remember, you can click on the pix and see them big and in detail*

Here is my You Make My Heart Sing card:

And here is my 12"x12" LOVE LayOut (sans photos, as I am waiting for Valentines Day pix--obviously there will be 4, cropped to fit on the 4 squares):


CTMH CS~wht daisy, bubblegum
DoodleBug pink glittered CS

CTMH heart patterned paper (pp) from Animal Crackers paper pack; the red and pink dots are from the Jingle paper pack.
CTMH White Daisy textured CS and txtr die cuts (alpha and scalloped frame)
CTMH paper flowers (foam tape popped up, so the coming photos will fit easily under)
White flocked brad
*white satin Ribbon is REPURPOSED from some PJ's I bought at Target...they came folded with the ribbon around the pj's. So I saved it. I still have enough to make a few more bows too!

We are supposed to get hit by a LOT of SNOW this weekend, so I will try and get in some quality crafting time, and share it with all of you.

Have a wonderful evening,
