Here is what the sketch inspired me to make..

All scraps!  Even the main mat is missing a section that I had cut out for something else
The letters are a mix of Thickers, Creative Memories, CTMH and some way off brand that I found on clearance 
I have four grandsons, these are the 'middle' two, they are a year apart and even though they are as different as day and night they seem to want to hang around each other all the time. The reason for the "K"'s is that is a page in one of the boys' ABC's of book and I needed a "K" page (yeah a stretch I know)..... I swear we do feed them too!  Can you believe these two little guys play tackle football????

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, the

Be Mine Blog Hop

Welcome to the Be Mine Blog Hop hosted by the ever popular Ashley The Bloghop Princess.  If you didn't get here by way of Diana's blog, you will want to start at the beginning with our hostess's blog.  Ashley is offering wonderful blog candy and you can find all the requirements by reading her post.  You don't want to miss out!

Celebrating Valentine's Day is style is what we are bringing you today.  Make sure you hop all the way through so you don't miss all the inspiration that is sure to come your way.

My project today is a banner of sorts.  I don't really know what else to call it LOL.  It's not the typical hang across your wall banner, it hangs down.

I made all the cuts with my brand new Cameo.  I love this little machine.  I originally thought I would only use it for vinyl, but I fell in love with the images in the Silhouette store and decided I had to master paper too.  All the cuts you see here are from the Silhouette store.  When I first saw those adorable arrow words I just knew I had to make something with them and I could only imagine them hanging on the wall. 

 I found the frame and the whole project just came together. I cut each arrow twice just to make them a little thicker and to lay better.  Twine hangs between each arrow and some Stickles and rhinestones finishes them off.  I hope you liked my project and as a thank you for hopping with us today and leaving me a comment I would like to offer you a chance for some valentine love of your own.

Some valentine tags and flowers to help you finish off those valentines you're making!

The next stop on our lovely stop is Ann!

Here's the complete line up:
