what the world needs now...is love, sweet love

well it is nearly Valentines' day...and the challenge on UKS this week required the use of lyrics from a love song {they are there at the bottom across the trunk of the tree}, a splash of red and some heart shaped embellishments *tick, tick, tick* so that is 30 more tasty points for the slave driving team leader ;0) *hope you're happy with my efforts sue!!* xxx

love this paper, its Fancy Pants...as so many of my favourites are...and i've added almost every type and style of embellishment...i have never been a less is more kind of girl...but you should have seen Rosie's face watching me stick all those mismatched items down the right hand side...i thought she might pass out at one point...but she didn't say a word...not like her at all lol *love you, hon...xxx*
i've used a tim holtz metal flower to which i added a turquoise pearl gem, and one of his book plates which i've added mini letter stickers to, a birdie rubon by Glitz design {although i had to cut his legs off, poor thing cos they were realllllllly long!!}, i've also layered more Fancy Pants pp {the heart on the green background}, and over that a love sticker...to which i've added a turquoise gem, the chip sticker with the butterfly i added a body in pink gems...to the yummy tree sticker i added more turquoise gems...and to the title i added more pink ones! gone slightly gem~tastic actually on this one...almost all the flowers on the paper have gems in the middle...and i picked all the beads off the felt border and replaced them with gems too!!
hope you're having a sparkly day too xxx
