It’s time for the OSAT Blog Hop! This month’s theme is Don’t go breaking my heart in honor of Valentine’s Day. Remember the song by Elton John and Kiki Dee? If not, you can watch the video here. My project has plenty of hearts – a large one from the Painted with Love Designer Series Paper, and small ones from the Sure Do Love You stamp set – and fortunately none of them are broken.
I’m on a ship right now (I’m actually at a live performance by Casey McPherson as I type this, so if there are any typos, that’s why!) My sister, and Candy Hearts team member, Judy Newsome, is house sitting. When I realized I’d forgotten to make the projects for today before I left, I contacted her and begged for help. Of course, she obliged because that’s the kind of gal she is. Between the two of us, we designed the card and treat box, and she actually made and photographed them. So while it was a team effort, she did the lion’s share of the work. Thanks, Judy!
