And now for something different.....

This is an idea I was playing around with the other day.  I wanted to make something to hang on my craft room wall.  As part of the theme in the room is hearts it stood to reason that it had to be heart shaped so I got the nesties out and cut one of each size in plain dies and the same in scalloped dies.  I dry embossed all the plain ones with an embossing folder before sticking them to the scalloped hearts.  I then built up the layers attaching each set with foam pads.  I then cut another of the largest size scalloped heart and attached it to the back to sandwich the ribbon in place.  Finally I decorated the front with a few paper flowers.  Not only does this make a nice wall decoration but I think it could also be given to a bride to carry on her wedding day, what do you think?  Hope you like it, thanks for looking.

Before I go I thought you might like to see what happened just after I took the above photo.....

Is that for me?


Is it my dinner?


Where's my dinner gone?


It's no wonder that Willow is such a BIG girl, she'll try to eat anything!
