Mi Amore Blog Hop!!

Happy Valentine's Day! Thank you for joining us for the Mi Amore Blog Hop! Didn't you just LOVE the wonderful project Tammy had to show you?!

My project is actually an "our" project, my girls and I made these! We decided to make altered mailboxes for them to take to school for Valentines. :)

So off to Target we went, these little mailboxes were $2.50 and so adorable. I let each girl pick what she wanted to put on their box and I think they did a great job!

First, we have Emily - she wanted to do a "Hug Monster". So we cut this cute little guy from Mini Monsters. Then we cut "Hugs and Kisses" and the cupid from Sweethearts. We used Songbird to weld and cut her name - and of course she had to use a little bling, as well. The stamp on the heart flag is from Scrappy Moms Stamps Love Notes set.




Then we have our little Beka, she wanted to do a penguin. But not just any penguin - one with a popsicle! LOL She also had to have a cupid and "Hugs and Kisses" like her big sister. The penguin and popsicle from Simply Charmed.



Here are my four wonderful Valentines - my husband and three little ones! I love them all more than words can say!


So now a little Valentine from me - I am giving away a Scrappy Moms stamp set of your choice. Just leave me a comment and a way to get in touch with you if you win. Of course, if you like what you see here I'd love for you to follow me and visit again!


Your next stop on the hop is the super talented Erin!

Have a wonderful week! {{{ HUGS }}}
