Hello, I have something fun to share with you today. I've been soooo inspired by my creative and sweet friend Shahrul lately, she's been crafting up a storm lately. Lots of fun mini albums, hearts, fabrics, reds, pinks and more. Finally last week with 15mts till the kids got home from school I got to work. Pulling off anything red,heart, pretty, pink off my scrapspace and in my drawer and used some linen as the pages. There wasn't time to measure or make this perfect, this was pure fun and free which is always a favorite for me. I cut up some of the linen into pages and just added a little something pretty to each page. Later I will go back and add stitching around pages and thru some of the hearts. I'm hoping to add some pictures to this also and/or quotes and sentiments about Valentines/LOVE. This really was just what I needed and will do it again. Please stop by Shahrul's blog and see what she's been up too, just today she posted an altered paintbrush and it's gorgeous and fun! Thank you Shahrul for inspiring me and filling my world with COLOR and IMAINGNATION!! I couldn't get blogger to let me text under each picture, sorry for that. This is a busy end of week and I'm going to an all day crop at my church on Saturday which means PL will be late next week. Have a great weekend everyone. THANKS so much for all your sweet comments, they make my day!! HUGS!


  1. I forgot to leave Shahrul's link, sorry about that.

    The pictures uploaded backwards too, so it starts with the last page. UUHHH it's always something isn't it. LOL

  2. Hey, this is amazing, and it's not even finished yet :). LOVE to see how you planned your pages and those hearts are so cute. Keeping lose like these had an advantage, you can keep adding more!!. LOL. And, a nice project for your kids to add stitches of their names or initials :). My favorite is the pink heart & doily, I'm secretly guessing this would be a page to celebrate your love for Rich?:). So so sweet. Hey, thanks so much for your support and encouragements for all my creations and things I do for fun, I'm thankful to have met so many sweet souls on the blog and you are one to cherished :). HUGS.
