Love is a canvas...

Hello everyone!  Hope you are having a good week.  Mine has been great so far...busy...but great!  My son and his family came for a visit this past weekend and I was able to see my sweet grandson.  Blake will be 2 years old in March and he is such a cutie...nothing like those grand babies!

I've also been busy working on my Fantabulous Friday segment for FCCB and getting ready for my first ever Cricut Crawl (better known as a blog hop).  I hope you will stop by FCCB on Friday and check out my newest edition of Fantabulous Friday.  The Cricut Crawl at FCCB will be on Monday, February 7th and I hope you will join us...should be lots of Cricut Fun!

I'm sure you have been busy on Valentine projects at your house!  So have I!  I wanted to try something a little bit different from the usual hearts and flowers and cupids that I tend to gravitate to this time of year.  I wasn't quite sure which direction I wanted to go headed to a site that I visit now and again when I need a bit of inspiration.  Quote Gardens is an awesome site with quotes by the buckets!  You can visit them by clicking HERE.  They have quotes that are serious, quotes that are funny, quotes that are just silly and quotes that inspire.  Sometimes a quick visit there will get my mojo moving!  Anyway, on my last visit I came across a quote from Voltaire that really made me think and this is what it lead to


*A Child's Year - Artist cut twice at 4 inches and adhered together.  I cut a piece of printed paper and glued it to the back of the easel to look like a painting.

*Printed paper -K & Company Paper Stack - this is an old Valentines stack from last year

*Pink paper - Recollections from Michael's - I used my sewing machine to stitch around the background mats.

*Paintbrush is painted with Smooch

*Brads - Recollections

*Flower - Prima flowers that I layered with a brad in the center

*Label - Nestabilities, sentiment computer generated

I hope you enjoyed your always, I love having you stop by!  Drop in anytime!
