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???

How many Gypsy Stylus Pens do you have??

Good Morning!  How many times have you grabbed your gypsy and you can't find your stylus?  I got my Gypsy last year (yay, for me!!!)  My first stylus fell on the floor and the tip broke.  Then I got another stylus and I lost it somewhere.  Occasionally I'll find it and always lose it again.  So I wanted to show you all the different stylus pens I now use.  What do you use?  Admit it...I know some of you do the same thing I do! lol

Project: Scrap our Stash January accounting

Hi!  Check out what I made for January and all I spent was $1.00 Here are a few pictures.  This has really made me aware of what I'm spending.  My hubby loves this challenge!!  Check out the pics below to see what I made. If you don't know what I'm writing about visit Denise at Lala's World.

Have a great night!!!

Decorative Letter

I hope you're having a great week.  here's a letter I bought from Michael's a while back ago.  My cousin is having a baby in a couple of weeks and I thought it would make for a nice addition to the room.  I'm also going to be decorating the letters to the rest of her name.  I've them sitting there for a couple of months and haven't done much with them.
First thing I did was paint it pink (can you guess what she's having?)
Then I used Nana's Paper Stack for the patterned paper.  Both ribbons are from my stash.  The butterfly is from Gypsy Wanderings cartridge, the tag is from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More and the sentiment is from Pink by Design. Check out the store.  It has great stuff.   This stamp is from the January stamp of the month called Fly Away With Me.  Added a couple flowers from my stash, stickles and voila!
