Love Potion #9

Thank you so much for all of your sweet comments on my last post! I decided that I better get started on some Valentine's Day projects or it will come and go and I won't have anything done. My daughter picked out her Valentine cards and her treat, but my son is still dragging his feet about the whole thing. I guess it loses it's charm in 5th grade! Anyway, I am much more inclined to give out little Valentine's Day treats than give out cards, so I thought I would get started on a little box/basket.
I have made similar things in the past, but not for Valentine's Day. I wanted a vintage feel because of the focal image I was using. I decided to pull out some Graphic 45 scraps from my America banner. I also used a piece of sheet music paper from "The Paper Studio". The focal image is from Waltzing Mouse stamps. In November I ordered a couple of sets; two Christmas and one Halloween. Shipping got really behind so I only recieved them last week. I was kindof bummed because I was so excited to use them for my Christmas projects, but noticed that one of the labels in the Halloween set had this cute "Love Potion #9" image in it. It is made to be used in conjuction with Nestabilities. I can't remember which label number, though. The polka dot heart is from PTI as well as the XOXO sentiment on the bottom as well as the sentiments on the tag.

I mentioned in my last SFYTT post that I was out of the clock charms that I used on that card, so of course I had to make an order over at Starlit Studios. While I was shopping, I had to pick up some of this delicious May Arts lace ribbon. I bought the whole spool so I wouldn't hoard it. I will be tucking a Valentine treat inside. Now I just have to decide who to give it to.
On Wednesday, I am putting together a PTA brunch for our monthly meeting. We decided on a Valentine's theme, so I want to make some favors for each place setting. I will share them when I get them done! Thanks for fluttering by!

Hello Kelly! I am new to your blog, but had to pop over since I see that you are featured this weekend at Flourishes. Congrats on that! I just 'flipped' through a dozen or so of your posts, and like your style. I see you are also expecting, and that this will be baby number four. Wow! Best of luck with the new addition to your family. I've just signed on to be a 'follower' of your blog. Have a wonderful day!
