Love is in the air...

I've been gone a long time...I hate the excuse "life gets in the way" and yet, that seems to be what happened.  But here I am.  New house, new life, new focus.

I figured that Valentine's Day was a good as reason as any to get started again.  Now, truthfully, this is not my holiday.  I am not a pink girl.  Not even really a red girl.  But my little people like it and I use pretty much any reason to celebrate.  Why not?  Life is short.  By the way, tomorrow is Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day, if anyone is interested.

Anyway, Papertrey's Blog Hop this month was simply hearts.  It seemed like an easy way to get into the spirit of Valentine's Day.  I got out the oldie, but goody Heart Prints with lots of heart dies and went to work.  Here are some little treat bags.

These hold a few ready to color Shrinky Dinks that can be put on a necklace or a bracelet.  It will be a fun afternoon on the way to Valentine's Day.  

I used Tiny Tags, Background Basics Polka Dots 2, and lots of dies.  The idea originated with the Winter Wonderland Challenge to use one Designer Paper.  When I brought out the pattern paper with the hearts everything just kind of came together for me.  

Thanks for looking and I'll be back soon.
