Love Is In The Air and It's Blog Hop Time Over At BBTB2!

Hi Everyone, I'm back, lol! No Really, I'm Back, I've finally got my Mojo back! I never really understood when people said that but now I completely understand, LOL!

Well it's Monday and you all know that Monday's are new challenge day at Bitten By The Bug 2 and it's also the end of the month and that also means Blog Hop Time, Woo Hoo! Now if you hopped here from my Wonderful Design Team Sister Sandi your on the right track. And if you hopped here all on your own you can start right HERE. Now this weeks challenge is hosted by one of the other Lovely and talented Design Team Sister Maria. She picked the Love Struck cartridge and we were to use more than one cut from that cartridge and make a scrapbook layout or a card about someone or something you LOVE. Now I don't have that cartridge so I used Sweethearts and Sentimentals and I want to tell you, I just LOVE the way this layout turned out! And like I said before, I'm Back!
I used some glitter paper for the heart locket and the key is actually a Christmas ornament from Wal-Mart I got after Xmas on sale. When I seen them I thought, Key to my Heart right off the bat and bought quite a few in different colors and I will be making a few more cards for Valentines day with them. The chipboard glittered word "Heart" is from K&Company and I've had them for quite awhile, lol! I love the color combination too, kind of Vintage Retro, don't you think!?
Now the flowers are crepe paper and I made them myself. I've made ribbon roses before (years ago, lol) and remembered how to make them and just used the crepe paper which is real popular right now. I will try and add the tutorial I did on them later in the week, they are very easy and alot of fun.
I also added a little glittered frame for a little journal spot and another crepe paper flower, now all I need to do is find the perfect picture to add to this, maybe I'll get a picture of Ken and I and add it to it! Wow that would be a miracle in itself, lol!
Well Now you will be hopping on over to the Talented Maria's blog, wait till you see what she created, Beautiful! But that's to be expected from all of these amazing gals here at BBTB2. I also have some fun Blog Candy for you all! A Cricut Cartridge! One of my favs and with summer coming it should come in handy! Now my requirements aren't that difficult, You MUST be a follower and you MUST leave a comment, That's it! Easy Peasy, I will pick a winner on Saturday the 5th. You have a week to respond or I will pick a new comment. Well I hope you enjoyed this and hope you will join us with this weeks challenge over at BBTB2, you could win the cute Blinkie to add to your blog along with bragging rights. So have fun hopping and don't forget to leave your comments! Have fun and have a great week!

((Hugs)) and Take Care, Theresa

We must have been in the same 'funk boat'! I can totally relate to getting your mojo back and then when it comes back, obviously with you it comes back with a vengeance!!! I bought some of those keys too, cuz well why not? :) love this, love the kissing ball in the last post too, I'm thinking of mixing the two and making the kissing ball with the crepe paper rosettes, thanks for the inspiration!

I am currently learning to Weld so that I can add a scalloped edges to my designs. It is a slow frustrating process for me at the moment. I can never seem to get the welds to do what they are supposed to.

Great card!
