MME - I *heart* u

I made this LO Tues night but had to commute to work for the last 2 days (I normally work from home) and never had a chance to take a pic in decent light. Of course, today is overcast and getting ready to rain so this is only a slight improvement :P The stamped hearts are less orangey in person and the stickles on the heart details read as blue- not orange- in person.

I love this MME Valentine's line - and I love that I can use it for anything love. My youngest went thru a phase where he "didn't need naps" but would go like the energizer bunny until he would just suddenly fall asleep in the oddest places or positions :P No temper tantrums or fussing- he would just drop. The left pic is him sitting in a kid's folding chair but he just leaned his head over onto the ottoman and went to sleep like that *LOL*

Anyway, I had fun playing with stash and techniques I am often too lazy to use or that is home when I usually scrap at crops. Lots of stamping, liquid pearls and stickles on top of my normal border punching and misting. The bottom XO strip is actually the result of using it as a stencil to color the vanilla cardstock for the love border directly above. I ended up liking my stencil enough to use it too :) The heart in the title is actually 2 negatives of die-cuts from the MME collection pack. I cut them out, layered them and then traced around them with my pen.

Supplies: Bazzill CS; MME papers and die-cuts; AC knock out punches and thickers; TA glimmer mist; SC Mr Huey mist; Ranger Liquid Pearls, Distress Ink, and Stickles; Fancy Pants stamps; Smash date stamp; CM corner rounder and pen; MS for Avery office label; Cloud 9 Design stickers
