Love impressions

Finally the cold weather has gone north! Boy I was beginning to think I needed to move south.

I have been sick the past couple of days with the cold that is going around and this morning is the first time I have felt like being creative. I have a Downline meeting this weekend and I wanted to show the girls something special done with the Love Impressions paper found in the new Occasions Mini Catalog. If you are a customer of mine you should have received this catalog in the mail. If have not CLICK HERE to contact me. The paper I used in the background is from the Love Impressions pack. You really need to get your hands on this paper to understand it's beauty and quality. This paper comes embossed across the center with "Love is All You Need". I added two layers of ribbon at the bottom topped by a bow. The Love repeated in Pink Pirouette and Basic Gray is paper also included in this pack. The birds are from the "Love You Much" stampset and then I backed the photos with Real Red and Basic Gray. I used two punches the Scallop Trim Boarder punch and the Heart Small Punch, all found in the Idea Book and Catalog.

I have some great cards for my downline meeting, but  I will wait to post those after Saturday.
