Love U. RAK

I found a big "U" on a clearance rack and got an idea...

I turned it into this...I used embellishments from the Making Memories Love Story line and one of their chipboard hearts. It went together quickly!

It started off as a blue "U" and with a little paint, I now have a Valentine project for my mantel!

If you post a comment, I'm doing a little RAK that will include this very "U"!!! And in honor of this, I'll also have some Love Story Embellies in there too...

I'll pick a winner tomorrow at noon, EST and post it here!


And if you are looking for more of the Making Memories Noteworthy Journaling books, I listed them for sale here on the website. Just scroll down below the February kit (and there are a handful of those left, but the project kit sold out in less than 24 hours!)

Enjoy your day!
