I'm back . . . . . . .

Yup . . . I know it's been a long time.  Yup, it's been awhile.  That's what happens when you have a daughter get engaged, plan a wedding, get married, and have to do it all over again for your brother.  I wouldn't trade it for the world!

Yup, it's been a long time.

Anyway, thought I'd share this little project that I did for a Peachy Keen Challenge.  It's made out of a toilet paper roll and other odds and ends.  Let me explain . . .

I took a toilet paper roll and made about six 1/2 inch cuts on both ends and folded the pieces into the roll.  I did that to shorten it a bit and to give it a more stable base.  Then I cut a piece of black harlequin scrapbook paper (had it a long time so not sure what kind but I think I got it from Hobby Lobby) and wrapped it around the roll.  I then made random cuts in the top piece to make the edges look raggedy.  Then I wrapped some baker's twine in red cherry several times around the top piece and tied it into a bow.  Next I cut a round piece of red cardstock and adhered it to the bottom.  Then I cut two hearts and their shadows from the Doodlecharms Cricut cartridge.  I flipped one of them and layered them on their shadows of red gingham paper. 

Now, the good part!  I used the Corny Faces stamp set from Peachy Keen Stamps to stamp the cute faces.  I just love the buck teeth!!!  Anyway, I added some pink chalk to the cheeks and the edges of the white hearts, added faux stitching, and popped them up.  Voila!

Isn't it cute?!  I could use this to give Valentine goodies to special people or just sit it on my shelf and look at it.  Ahhh . . . creativity . . . don't ya just love it?
