I {Love} U

The banner  made today I will submit to both CR84FN Color Challenge , and The Shabby Tea Room Week #43 .

For the first, Mona has a new challenge blog ( the link above). These are the color inspiations:
Gorgeous, right?!!!!!!
I am thinking spring, but really want Valentne's Day! So.... I made a banner for Valentine's Day!






( shhhh..these were taken in my bathroom, the lighting against the white tile makes for a crisper picture and true color, it's also dark out!!)
I am also submitting this to The Shabby Tea Room! Their challenge is to incorporate 11 elements into your project for the new year 2011!!!!  SOOOO COOL!!!
my eleven elements are:
papers: webster's pages, papertrey ink, core'dinations, yellow bicycle
die cut: papertrey ink banner
paper flowers: recollections/resin flowers: from ETSY
buttons: papertrey ink
ribbon: ETSY
letters: k&company
hearts: Melissa Frances
chipboard frame: tattered angels
pearls: Michaels
twine: papertrey ink
pin: Dritz sewing pin from Joann's

Thanks for looking!!!!
Michelle
