LOTV Valentine Project!

Hello everyone! First let me say a big thank you to all the sweet comments regarding my FIL.  We all are adjusting slowly and in time the tears will be replaced with just wonderful memories of a great man.  You guys really are the best!!!!!!!!!

I have a little project featuring an adorable Lili of the Valley image today.

This image is called "LOVE GROWS" and is found under the occasions tab HERE! What a cute little couple they are!!!!!

The flowers are from my very favorite online store in the world WILD ORCHID CRAFTS!!!

You can put candy or favors in this little heart pouch!  I told you that I got the new Cricut cartridge by CTMH for Christmas and this is one of the patterns I printed out!  I cut it at 11" and it is pretty huge haha!  It measures a little over 6" total once folded.  I have had this pattern for years in the cut out version which you can find HERE.  It is so much nicer when it is cut out for me!!!!

Yes, I filled it with leftover Christmas candy.  I am back on my healthy kick so I need to get rid of the "bad for me stuff". 

Here is a picture of the backside.  Don't laugh, I really did mean to put the letter on catty whompus (?) but they are not exactly how I placed them before glue haha!  That glue stuck pretty quickly! yikes!  Oh well, you get the idea right! No stressing over crafts for me!

That's it for me today!  I hope you like my Valentine's Day Project and maybe you will try one!  Thank you so much for stopping by to visit me today.   Don't forget to go by the Ideas to Inspire Blog, and see the fun and exciting things happening with LOTV!!! Woo Hoo!!!

Hugs, Dena
