Love is in the.....

house!  I have never decorated for Valentines Day in the past.  But after pinning so many ideas on pinterest, I figured perhaps it was time to actually complete some of these crafty ideas.  So I got to work with my scrapbook paper and my cricut and created a few things.

For the love banner I used the Doodlecharms cartridge and some of my scrapbook paper that I received last year in one of my monthly kids.  A little bit of stickles on the edge and it was all done.  The Love sign in front of the candlesticks came from the have to love the dollarstore!  The heart day idea came from pinterest.  I purchased the wooden scrabble tiles at Michaels Art and Craft Store (with my 40% off coupon of course) and I had a frame just laying around the house.  Again I used some scrapbooking paper from the same kit as the banner paper.  Then for the rest of my table I looked around my house to see what I had.  I was quite surprised at the things I found.  A wedding frame we got as a gift that had been tucked away for years, a red candle holder that I received as a christmas gift and the beautiful Candlesticks we received as a wedding gift.  I have a lot to learn yet for creating vignettes.  I found it hard since I have the window in the background instead of a wall.  So now that Valentines is over I will keep it up for a bit until I am ready to decorate for Easter.  I have already been a pinning fool to find ideas.  LOL
