Set your Heart on Something Beautiful

 Happy Day of LOVE!!! 
Hello and welcome to my blog for new comers. Today is a Valentine's Day and spreading the love is what it's all about. 
The morning start off a little crazy getting the kids ready fro school. When we woke up we saw my son's Valentine's goodies all over the living room and some have been already opened. No hesitation who we knew it was. OH YES but of course SOPHIA my little one. This chickie found it very easy to help herself to her brother's goodies for his class. 

I couldn't even get a word to her this morning...... the first she did when she woke up is give me a big hug and told me how much she loves me. 
Gosh ...and that's how she gets away with things around here sigh.... she has us wrapped around her finger. 
8AM doorbell is ringing mad! The neighbors brought Sophie and Lauren gift bags full of sweet stuff candy, toys, balloons and a stuff heart pillow. I couldn't get over the whole sweet gesture. 
The kids are the same age as them too. It was just so sweet!

Anyhow I wanted to spread a little sprinkle of Love myself by sharing my new creation for 
Saturated Canary Challenge. ( I picked the theme tehee) :) "Love scene" It could be a scene or a LOVE theme creation. 
I did have Grey Tie and Under contract in the works but soon just thought to put a hold on it lol! We'll just leave it for another time and for right now we'll keep it PG.

Ok folks be ready for loads of pictures as I gone mad as usual. I used Roses are Red,Violets are Blue, used the boy from Puppy Love duo and set the scene using MIC Tree of Love.
You could find direct links of the images down at the bottom.
You could click HERE and go shopping at Saturated Canary Online shop.

Here are a few pictures of the coloring alone before I decorated it.

Solos of the kiddos

I hope you like my scene and yes I used Spectrum Noir markers. I will add the recipe at the bottom. With such a big scene I'm sorry If I forgot to note any color combos but I only wrote down what I remembered as I was going. 

Well it's time for me to get ready just in case I go somewhere special like the grocery store *_+ but before I sign off sadly Sally didn't contact me for the MIC Gumnut flower girl card and the runner up is

 Tracy Payne... 

My MIC teammies had some good laughs from your comment lol! This is what Tracy said.

G'day Sheila. This is a dinkum card. Chuck a shrimp on the Barbie, get some dead horse, some amber fluid and plonk in the fridge, I'll be right over!
