Be Mine...American Crafts Blog Hop

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! Welcome to my little piece of the scrappy world! I'm excited about today for soo many reasons...celebrating the love for my one & only and of course enjoying Valentine festivities with my girls but also because we get to have a BLOG HOP with all the talented ladies on the American Crafts design team!

There's lots of inspiration to be discovered and prizes to be won so I hope you are having fun so far!  For my project, I decided to pull out this cute little mailbox I found at Target. I layered strips of pattern paper over each other and then embellished it with journaling cards, chipboard stickers, die cuts, stickers and more.



I wrote notes to each family member on the journaling cards, so that they know how much I love, adore and respect them. Of course, I try to demonstrate it every day but sometimes it's nice to write it down! I stuffed the notes and candy in the mailbox so they have something fun to open today!



I hope you've enjoyed this fun little project and that I've inspired you in some way!

GIVEAWAY!!!

I'll be giving away a RAK of some American Crafts XOXO collection goodies. I like to reward all my followers with a chance to win so just "Join" my blog to become my newest follower and leave me a comment and you'll be automatically entered! You have until 2/18 at Midnight CST to enter to win.

It'll be a little bit of this and a little bit of that along with bits & pieces from other elements of the XOXO collection ...
 

Now, enjoy the rest of your hop and head over to Carina's blog to see what she created! Of course, if you're just starting the hop at my blog, make sure to go to the beginning by visiting the American Crafts blog!

Thanks for stopping by today!
