Hello everyone! I decided to lighten and brighten up my blog a bit and go with a subtle background. Even though I loved my previous turquoise damask patterned background, I think a plain background is less distracting and it's easier on the eyes. What do you think? I also widened the margins and added another column so that everything isn't so cluttered. Simple is sometimes better when it comes to blog design, right? I think it's also about time I update my blog header, so I'll be playing around with that soon.
For Valentine's Day, I made a little project for the Lily Bee blog. I used papers from Lily Bee's new This & That line to alter a Valentine candy box.
I made the paper ruffle and painted the edges with Fire Engine Red Shimmerz. I sprinkled red glitter over the Shimmerz paint for good measure. I added black Stickles to the beautiful damask pattern on the black and white Lily Bee paper.
Hungry? How about a little peak inside . . .
They look good enough to eat, don't they? Not so fast! I made these scrumptious looking chocolates out of Fimo polymer clay (the beads are the giveaway).
But here's the BEST part. My jester husband saw the finished project and decided to play a little joke. When I was in the other room, he snuck into my scrap room and found my Fimo clay. He made his own little piece of "chocolate", complete with a "bite" taken out of it (he used the handle of a fork to make the teeth marks). Then he replaced one of the the chocolates in my candy box with the one he made. So imagine my surprise when I opened up the box to photograph it and saw a half eaten chocolate!!
Funny man, that hubby of mine! I think I'll keep it this way.
I hope you have a wonderful, chocolate-filled Valentine's Day!!
