Love is in the Air...Blog Hop!

Welcome to my blog and to the Love is in the Air - Valentines blog hop (hosted by Paulette from Around the Block with scrapalette)! You should have arrived here from Sukie's fabulous blog, Scrappin Dhilly! If you need to get back to the beginning, click here to go to Around the Block with scrapalette.

My project for the hop is a teen inspired Valentine's frame for my daughter to give to her boyfriend for Valentine's Day.



I started with a very inexpensive plastic frame from Micheal's ($3.99) and then used vinyl and bling to decorate it! (Here's the before picture of the frame.)



I used the cricut cartridge Sophisticated for the black frame, cut in black vinyl. And then the heart with wings is from the Love Struck cartridge. I used a dark pink vinyl for the background layer and then a lighter pink vinyl for the detail layer.

I then added some bling and I was done. It was a very easy project!

Thanks for stopping by on the hop. Your next hop is to Renee's incredible blog...I came, I saw, I created.

Happy hopping!
