A winner and a layout!!

Hello to you!    I hope you are having a fantastic day :) It is raining here and has been all day ...I think I may need to pull the boat up to the driveway, I may need it to go to work tomorrow lol.

I totally forgot to pick the winner for my candy from the blog hop yesterday (sorry ). So let me just get right to that!

Awesome projects Robin!!! LOVE that beautiful plate!
TFS and enjoy your Sunday!!

Miss Jessica E, if you will e-mail me at (the cricut scrapper at yahoo dot com ) I will get your candy in the mail :)

Okay, now I have a layout to share with you. I made this to enter into a challenge that Scrapping Bug Designs was having on facebook yesterday.  So, I thought I would share it on here too.

I was kind of in a hurry trying to get this one done, because the challenge was just for one day. So there are a few things I would have probably done a little differently. All in all though I think it turned out pretty cute.  The cute little girl is found here along with the heart and another little cutie patootie girl :D
The papers are from a valentine pack and a solid pack of papers that I got from Walmart. I cut the little girl the heart and the "my little" wording out on my silhouette and then added some twine, buttons and a flower and of course I added some stickles . Oh and I used the divine swirls to emboss her wings with. I think that's about it.
Thanks for stopping by

Love is in the Air Blog Hop

Welcome to Day 2 of the Love is in the Air Blog Hop, brought to you by the Layout design team from Red Carpet Studio!

If you haven't hopped through Day 1 yet, make sure to do so!

This weekend the Red Carpet Studio design team would like to share with you love-themed projects to inspire you during this Valentine's Day season. Throughout the hop you'll see a variety of projects and we hope one or more of these wonderful creations inspire you to create. :)

If you've come from the wonderfully talented  Stephanie's blog, you're in the right place. If you'd like to start at the beginning of the hop, please visit Red Carpet Studio.

For today's hop I made...2 things!! I know, I am really on the ball hehe. I  first made a charger plate, then I decided to make a card too. I just couldn't resist :)

I have seen people doing the charger plates and picked up a few around Christmas, but never did anything with them. Since, I had a red one I decided to do one for Valentines day....I downloaded the heart image in the Silhouette store and think it is just beautiful :)  Then I made up the  sentiment to go on it and added the hearts on the sides to finish filling it up. I thought I did pretty well for my first one lol.

okay now on to my second project for you wonderful  hoppers ....
my card...isn't it beautiful !!! No, I'm not bragging on myself. I actually got this cut file from a wonderful woman that has all kinds of free cut files( how awesome is that!!! I love, love, love free lol) you can find this cut file and many more here at Birds Cards. She has so many beautiful cards and things on her site...warning ....when you go over there make sure you have alot of time to spend looking at everthing  :D  To add that special touch to my card,  I   used one of  the beautiful angel pins that I purchased from The Pinque Peacock you can find the pins I  used here ..they have some amazingly beautiful items that will add that special touch to all of your projects :)  The stamp set I used is from Docerela :)
I'm linking this up to the challenge going on over at Whimsical Designs "All about Love"
