Will you Be My Valentine?

So today, it's my turn over at 3 Scrappy Boys.  I wasn't quite sure what to share with you but after  browsing a lot on Pinterest looking for Valentine's Day inspiration, I was so in the mood to create something Valentine-sy.  I got this fabulous September Main kit in the Past Kit Clearance section(there are some awesome kits in this section clearanced at a great price) and happened to notice a few fun prints that happened to be on top that had a valentine's look.
September 2013 Main kit
Just look at this fabulous arrow print with the hearts.  Isn't it so cute!

 So I knew what I wanted to play with line.  I kept mostly to the gray/pink/yellow combo.  The yellow dot and pink/coral prints are b sides not shown in the kit photo.  I then found this darling photo of my college age daughter at her favorite dessert place where she went with her friend on Valentine's day.  The cork arrows and the cute little yellow heart sticker from the sticker sheet were the perfect touch.
I used this fun sketch from My Scraps and More Sketches blog:
One little tip I thought I'd share is: if you don't want just a white doily,  mist it.  I thought this heart doily was perfect but it was white and that's what I wanted as my background.  So, I grabbed my Mr Huey's First Kiss, that I got here and at a discount no less, spritzed it and before it set in too much I wiped/dabbed it off on a paper towel.  This is the color I was left with.  I love it!  So next time you're wanting a doily or a flower in that perfect shade, pull out your mists and give them a try to change them up.
Don't forget the amazing sale going on over at the store.  There are some FABULOUS items clearanced there at 50% off!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great rest of your week!
