BBTB2 - Valentine's Day Anything Goes

Happy Monday!!!

Today over at BBTB2 I am lucky enough to host this week's challenge.
I decided that it was time to kick it in gear and start thinking about
Valentine's Day :)

So this week I thought it would be fun to do an Anything Goes
Valentine's Style....

So as I was scrolling on Facebook the other day,
I came across a post from my Design Team Sister Sukie over at
Scrappin Dhilly and I immediately fell in love with her
Valentine Topper. (Thanks Sukie!!!)
I knew it was exactly what I wanted to CASE
for this year's Valentine's I make for my
friends, co-worker's, and my kids' teachers.

Of course, it isn't exactly like hers, how could I compete :)
But I did what I could with the materials I had.
The hearts I cut from George, the topper base is from
Elegant Edges, as well as the scallop trim at the top.
The arrow is from Small Talk Frames and Tags.

I rifled through my ribbon bins and found some fun
pieces to use. I also ordered on Amazon a TON of
little key embellishments - which I LOVE, and added
one to some twine and just clipped them all together
with a mini clothes pin I picked up from the Dollar Store.

Of course the chocolates are the Hershey's Nuggets
wrapped in strips of Valentine scrapbook paper.
I also used the cut out hearts from the topper as
confetti in the bag, so nothing went to waste :)

My XOXO stamp is from a Fiskars stamp set
and I decided to do a little bit of blush inking on the hearts.

I really like how these turned out,
now I just need to make 30 more :)

I hope you will join us over at BBTB2 this week!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!
