Blogger's Challenge #86: Valentine's Day!



"Valen-times" as my dh and I like to say after seeing that on some tv show. I don't have a traditional Valentine's project but it's one that fits my Valentine!



I've mentioned before that Steve wants to be a cowboy or at least dress like one and see every western movie ever made. Well, I used a retired Simply Scrappin' Kit called Round-Up to come up with a little cowboy treat for the cowboy in my life.



Squash books have been around for a little while but this is the first one that I have ever made. I completed it from beginning to end in just a couple of hours (which was easy because of the Simply Scrappin' Kit...must get more of these in my hot little hands and I'll be a GREAT scrapbooker yet!) Putting the whole idea together is fairly easy! I'd be happy to have a workshop or class with you and your friends and show you how to make one!



I tried to get a picture of each element of this book so I hope you can see. I have included one picture of Steve before I met him....where did all of that gray in his beard come from? He blames me!



Thanks for looking and I'm sure you'll see some more traditional ideas of Valentine's by checking out the blogs of the other Blogger's Challenge members!

Happy Valentine's Day to you all!!!
