Oops, I had this scheduled to post (but hadn't finished up my post yet). I was going to finish it up and post it last night but we had this explosion of some sort at our little power substation down the street and lost all of our power for a few hours. My family actually saw the 'explosion' happen as we were driving home from my parents house. It was kind of scary. I decided to go to bed and forgot all about this post during the craziness of it all. I got up this morning (thankfully to having power again) and got ready for church and got home from church a bit ago and saw that I had a sweet little comment on this post and realized that OOPS I didn't finish the post. Haha, so there is your random story for the day.
I made this for a sweet friend that goes to my church. She is a mom of three grown boys that live away from home and she is divorced. She had mentioned that she wasn't super excited about the upcoming 'LOVE' holiday and I wanted her to know that she is VERY loved. She is such a sweetheart and I wanted her to know that me and my family were thinking of her and hoping she was having a good day.
The little circles/messages on the bottom of the kisses is ABSOLUTELY NOT MY OWN. I've seen people do these for quite a while now and thought I would try one too. I saw Peachy Keen's designer, Emily's, cute kisses with the new Kawaii Face stamps by Peachy Keen on them and knew I had to use a few of those for mine too. You should check out her SUPER cute post HERE.
I used LOTS of My Creative Time products for this upcycle project (9 to be exact). The tube was from a tube of mini M and M's from Christmas. I washed it up and then decorated it. I used the Fun Stitched Edges for the scalloped bottom layer and some patterned paper on top of that. I used some pretty twine at the top and bottom too. I attached one of My Creative Time's Teeny Tag Dies with a sentiment from the Teeny Tag Holidays. I used the Build a Banner Dies for the circles on the bottom of the kisses. I dressed up those circles with sentiments/images from the following stamp sets by My Creative Time: Any Day Bingo and Crossword, You Had Me at Chocolate, Postcard Add Ons, Turn That Frown Upside Down and Chocolate Greetings.
Since I used more than 8 My Creative Time products on this I wanted to enter it in their current designer challenge HERE. I'm also linking it to the linky party at Peachy Keen Stamps since I used face stamps from the newest release. You can find that linky party HERE. Hugs- Glora
