Today's project was a long way in the making. I've had these adorable photos of my little one for awhile now, just waiting for the perfect papers to mix them with. Although they are not Valentine photographs, the "lovely" pinks, reds, black and creams of the Lovely Collection are perfect. I loved adding all of the different Petaloo flowers throughout the layout. The little lock sticker is a perfect addition, peeking out from behind the photo corner. I die cut the title using my Silhouette and both the pattern and the reverse of the Keynote paper. It needed something more however, so I used the Picolla Cool-Set Enameling Gel in Napthol Red. The Enameling Gel was a perfect addition, as it gave shine and dimension to the heart.
It was really fun to play with flowers in a layout. All of the little details really made this a special project that I know that I will cherish forever.

I can never get enough flowers. They seem to be a staple in my scrappy stash, so I was so excited to be able to use Petaloo on my Lovely project. Guiseppa here, to share with you a shadow box frame I made using Lovey and Petaloo flowers. I made my frame from a Silhouette cut, so it is all cardstock...kind of cool huh? I used some Lovely to makes some additional flowers and to line the inside of the box. I also used the Lovely Element Stickers for added establishments next to the flowers. I added a little bit of pink ribbon from May Arts.
The message inside the box is a from my sweet hubby Sam. He wrote some things about me that he loved and gave it to me one day. I thought it was so sweet and I needed to find a way to display this cute way of him showing his affection for me.
Just an idea here, but maybe you could break out a bit of Lovely and make a special Valentine's Day gift for that special someone in your life.
