Happy Friday Everyone!! The weekend is here!!!  Yeah, no homeschooling tomorrow...just a house full of company for the weekend. I still have lots to prepare...I am not normally a procrastinator, there is just too much to do. did not come here to listen to me ramble...Today Leigh Anne Baird has a new release of a template at Perfect Presentations!!!  It is such a fun shape and is perfect for that little Valentine something. It is called "Be Mine".

For my creation, I used some new Valentine paper from K&Co. that I just purchased from Michaels this week.  I just love the colors!  The sentiment on my box is from Whimsy's Love Letter Seals.  Since I created this for my hubby, I did not add much embellishing other than the hearts which I cut out with the SU heart punch (the glitter paper is K&Co.).

For more inspiration using the templates for the release, please visit my dt sisters:
If you leave a comment on each blog, you have a chance to win a template of your choice from Perfect Presentations!!!  Each dt member will randomly choose 1 commenter from their blog to win one template!!  That is 8 chances to win!!!!You have until Sunday at Midnight to leave a comment for a chance to win!!  The winner will be announced on Monday.

Traci S. said...

Hi Chris,

Your husband is so fortunate to benefit from your love of paper crafting and your love for him!

This is great. At first it reminded me of Minnie Mouse...but I think that is what happens when you grow up near Disney World! We all see the "Mice" everywhere.

This style box could be used for so many things. And, I can't even make a heart evenly! I would use it for birthdays, and anniversary presents...anything and everything!

I love her creations...and I love what you do with them. How could it not be wonderful?!

He IS Able,
Traci S.
