Lots of Love Blog hop

Hi and welcome to the next stop of the Lots of Love Blog Hop!  I hope you're having a great time so far.  If you're coming from the talented Sarah's blog over at Pink Cricut then you're on the right track.

If you've lost your way or just happen to end up here hop on over to the beginning at Lovebug Creations.

I have a great and fun project for you. I had a great time making this.

Here are a few things I used for the project.

I used the Gypsy Wanderings, Sweethearts, Plantin Schoolbook and Stretch your Imagination to cut out the hearts.
Also used stickles and my cuttlebug to decorate them.  

I painted the ball in Pink and let it dry for a few hours.
I used a skewer two skewers to hold it up and painted it green.
If you look below you'll see I ended up wrapping the skewers in red ribbon.

I hot glued all the hearts, ribbon and blingy brads.

More hot gluing...this took a while but it was great watching this come together

Here's a close up of all the hearts.
Voila!  A beautiful Valentine Topiary.
If you notice I also painted the pot in white and added
some yummy Hershey Kisses and Dove chocolate.

You didn't actually think I was done there???
