Such an amazing list of prizes and sponsors!!  Really, who wouldn't want to win??  You have until Thursday, Feb 17th at 6pm EST to comment on all the blogs for a chance to win.

I have 2 fun projects to share with you today!

First, my Mom found this idea on the Family Fun website and I thought it would be so cute to make these for my little rockstars for Valentine's Day


I personalized Emily's (the pink one, of course!) with a few of her favorite songs, as well Mommy & Daddy's song "Ain't Nothin' About You" (by Brooks and Dunn).  Bradley's has more generic love themed songs, because he doesn't really have any favorites yet.

Just in case you get off track during the hop, here is the whole list for you:




My second project was so much fun to make!!  I bought one of those cheap little heart shaped boxes of chocolates at Walmart and I wanted to decorate it all up!  Of course, I nibbled the chocolates while I was working (but there were only 4 in there!!!)




Such a fun Meljen's image!!  I just loved coloring this Little Cupid!  His curly hair is so cute!!  And, his wings were the perfect excuse to use the Stickles that I barely ever use anymore!  I really love how this turned out!!

I am SO glad that you are hopping along with us today!!  It is an honor to be asked to join in with this group of talented ladies!  But, you're not done yet!!   From here, you are on your way to see Sandy, another of my fellow Meljen's Design Team members and I am just SURE that she has something AMAZING to share with you!!

Have fun and don't forget to comment!  The more comments you leave, the better chance you have of winning one of the fabulous prizes listed above!!

Good Luck!

Happy Valentine's Day!

OMG! So love the iPod candy boxes with the kiss earbuds. So clever! Makes me wish I had young ones to makes those for. Not too sure what my 23 and 25 yr old would think...probably just eat the candy. LOL. Your cover for the heart box is so cute and another great idea.

What a super cute cupid...and you've made this heart box extra adorable. Too bad about the cheapness on the chocolates. Always blows me away that they get away with four chocolates in a pile o' packaging =)
