Love....

I found this tutorial on SCS on how to make your own buttons......and decided to play around and make my own! You just punch your shapes about 6 or 7 times, glue the papers together, and coat the top with Crystal Effects. After it is dry, you punch holes with a Cropodile. Easy peasy! (I used my Spellbinder's heart dies. ) I also used a jump ring to connect the two hearts! You know......two hearts as one? (Everyone say awwwwww!) I used up some scraps I had from last years Valentine stash and a sentiment from Papertrey Ink. Oh! And see the little scallop peeking out? That is Spellbinders too! It is from their scalloped frame die. I just used the edge of it!

The Appt. Reminder is from Fresh Laundry.

Just a quick post this morning........I have to get ready for work. Vacation is officially over.....reality has hit me square in the head! (Oh wait that was Brian! HA HA!)
Have a great one!!!!! : )
