Scent with Love - Playing in Paradise

Hello everyone,

Is it the weekend yet?  How about spring?  Shucks, only February...  well happy Love day!  I hope cupid is good to you.

A new Playing in Paradise challenge starts today and our talented Linda has a really fun theme this month.  Do you like flowers and ribbon or lace?  How about doilies and charms or little trinkets? Pearls or bling?  Stick pins, stickers, chipboard die cuts or buttons, brads or eyelets?  All you have to do it make a project with any 5 of these items and link it up for a chance to win.  I hope you will play along!

For my project, I chose flowers, lace, doily, charm and pearls.  Shocking, I know! ;)

Isn't this little mouse super cute?  This image was really fun and quick to colour and the sentiment, along with a few others, came with it.  Gotta love that!

All the flowers were handmade using sizzix dies.  Each petal is individually shaped and glued onto a base.  I do love making my own flowers - it is really relaxing and you can make them any colour to match your project perfectly.

The team has made some beautiful projects to inspire you again this month, so please do pop on over to the Playing in Paradise challenge to have a peak and get all the challenge details.  


Flowers - Sizzix Susan's Garden - mini daisy and mini petals, Tim Holtz tattered flower garland
Other - BoBunny doily, Kaisercraft lace, pearls, charm, twine and stamens from my stash

Thanks so much for stopping by and for taking the time to leave a comment.  I really appreciate each one.  I am so looking forward to this crazy week being over and catching up with everyone over the long weekend :)

Hugs & happy crafting,
