***Giveaway Closed*** Love at First Sight Blog Hop!

Happy Saturday!

I was so excited when Sandra ask me to be a part of her "Love at First Sight" blog hop! There are so many talented blogger's in this hop, I can't wait to see everyone's projects!

If you have arrived here from Joanna's super amazing blog then you are on the right track, if you want to start at the beginning click here to go to Sandra's blog.

This blog hop is to celebrate Sandra's anniversary of when she met her hubby 8 years ago, it was "Love at First Sight", her 7th wedding anniversary, and of course Valentine's Day! She has asked us all to make a love themed gift for someone that we love. We will also be sharing pictures of us with the person we love.

For my project I made my BFF's, Caroline and her hubby Jeff, a banner for their fireplace. Caroline asked me a couple weeks ago if I would make them one and I though that this would be a prefect project for this blog hop.
It say's "Hugs & Kisses". It' hard to see the lighter letters. Have I ever told you how difficult it is to photograph banners... this one was particularly difficult becasue of the colors.

The papers  are from K and Company's Valentine's stack and DCWV.
The banner tag was cut from the B is for Boy cart at 5". The hearts were cut from the Doodlecharms cart at 3 1/4". The letters were cut from the Birthday Bath cart at 1 1/2".
I used 6" wide pink tulle to string the banner together.

I love how it turned out and Caroline and Jeff love it too! :)

Sandra asked that we include a photo of the person that we love/made our gift for.  This first photo is my BFF, Caroline and her husband, Jeff. We were having dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, China Camp.
 This next one is Caroline and I at Jeff's parents, 50th wedding anniversary party.
Here is one of Meaghan(Caroline & Jeff's daughter), Jeff, and I at the same party.
