I am attempting to maintain a blog filled with random bits from my life and family as well as my adventures in crafting.

Decorate to Celebrate!

Okay, so I am venturing out a little on my blog.  I have mainly used my blog for cards, but that's not all that I do.  I enjoy working on home decor projects and decorations as well.  So when I discovered the Decorate to Celebrate blog, I thought I would give it a shot. (Thanks Arin!)  The current challenge is to create a decoration with, of course, a Valentine/Love theme.  The wood heart I purchased from Oh My Crafts!  They have a website, but I live close enough to their warehouse that I picked it up there.  I also got the paper from the warehouse, I believe it is retired paper from Making Memories.  Of course, I used Mod Podge to adhere the paper.  I used the Home Decor cartridge to cut out "Adore".  A few pieces of Recollections bling, ColorBox Chalk Ink around the edges, and Studio G ribbon.  The acrylic paint is Craft Smart Chocolate Brown.  I sure hope this qualifies for the challenge, I had fun making it and it is the centerpiece on my table.
