Hugs and Kisses and Valentine Day Wishes

Another Pink Saturday ~ this one all about Valentine’s Day. Stop by Beverly’s at How Sweet the Sound and see all the wonderful creations and Pinks for Valentine’s Day. Thank you Beverly for tirelessly hosting this sweet event each week. One of the challenges of this event is to visit a blog you have not been to before and then direct others to them. Last week I visited Aquascape your Landscape for the first time and was thoroughly delighted. Please take a moment to visit ~ you won’t be disappointed.

My offering….

and the other side…

100_5545 (640x634)

I actually started this a couple of weeks back when one of the blogs I visit issued the challenge to use her digital papers to make a project. Well, being who I am ~ I got started right away and then had creative freeze (something I suffer from regularly when I need to produce on demand ~ so to speak) so, needless to say I did not finish it in time for the challenge, but I liked it anyway and so thought I would share it here.

I’ve also started creating this…It won’t be finished for awhile, so hopefully it will give me a few weeks for Pink Saturday. Another quest to use up older supplies ~ I used some handmade paper a friend gave me sometime back to cover each one of the pages I cut from sturdy cardboard (just another thing I tend to keep around for times such as this). This is as far as I’ve made it…

14 Days of Valentines Book Cover 2012

The cover and I still do not think I’m done with it as it just doesn’t sit right yet. The trinket in the center was picked up at a yard sale for 50 cents a couple of summers ago ~ I love the tiny butterfly on the left and dragonfly on the right. If you want a better look at them, just click on the photo.

The inside cover page ~ with just a start at the background…

and the next page, again just the back drop….

Have a wonderful Pink Saturday, and Happy Valentine’s Day.
