JUST US GIRLS #277 Photo Week!




 


 Hello and good morning crafty peeps! I'm the hostess with the mostest this week at JUST US GIRLS! It's Photo Week, and since Valentine's Day is just around the corner, I found this super cute image to inspire you! Here's the card I came up with:


 Here's the inside:

I thought I'd make a round card just to mix things up a bit. I found an older Mojo Monday sketch (#317) to work from, and just had fun mixing papers, and using new (to me) items: the grand scalloped circle & heart Nesties, the heart embossing folder, and that sentiment stamp (that I've had for a couple years but just now got around to inking up). I didn't have any in between heart dies for the black mats, so I traced the dies I used and fussy cut them out. (because I'm crazy like that) Oh, and when I opened my bag-o-sequins, it somehow fell out of my hand and those little buggers went EVERYWHERE! Fun times here in the ol' craft cave, I tell ya. ;) 

I hope that you get a chance to play along this week at Just Us Girls! Please check out the incredible creations of my uber talented teammates, and our Guest Designer, Judy Woodland. Remember, if you are picked as Chic of the Week for any of the January challenges, you'll be in the running to be our Guest Designer for the month of March! Good luck and can't wait to see what you create! Thanks for stopping by!

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
