Happy Valentines Day!

I had these darn metal mailboxes from Target for a year. Never had a chance to do anything with them until now (well, at least one!)...a year later! LOL!! Well, better late than never, right?! I used TaDa Creative Studios' Festivus Collection (My Sweet Valentine paper) and Spellbinders Classic & Scalloped Hearts on its front. Loved how it turned out :)

We had Valentines Day dinner a day early since hubby has to work on Monday...unlike kids who are lucky to get off school for Presidents' Day. It was a good thing we went to Koreana Restauarant at 5:00 pm! Once we ordered, people started to pile into the place. Our clothes are in the wash today because of all the smoke from the BQ - all the BQ tables were full and were smoking up the place! They had to open the door because the exhaust fans couldn't catch up! LOL!! But boy, the food was GOOD!! YUMMY!!

SOooooo I would like to wish my friends and family a wonderful wonderful HEARTFUL day with each good and be thankful for the love you receive and lovingly give! xoxoxoxo

Michele's Sketch Challenge

This is for you, Michele, in honor of your first sketch! LOL!
Here's my take on the sketch...totally different from your layout. All boy and I had this Teresa Collins Collection FOREVER so thanks for the kick in the butt!

This is my oldest (Taka) when he was in sixth grade with his friends at Wheaton. They have known each other since fourth grade (five years ago) and to this day, they still talk to each other via internet...even though we moved to another town. Matter of fact, they were over last month for a sleepover! LOL!!

14 Days of Valentine's Day Tags

At Scrapbook News and Review Magazine (SNR), each staff member gets a chance to show off their tag art. The theme? Well, Valentine's of course!

So I am doing one on an image I downloaded at Twisted Papers. I love their images :) With their image, I did a "new" favorite technique of layering the same image as many times as you fellow crafter/artist, Sherry Cheever, showed me!

For more details, here's the thread with my tag and the "how to" steps!
Hope you enjoy it.
TAG YOU'RE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL!!
