Yummy Hearts Challenge!

Welcome to week 19 at The Paper Variety! 
What a great challenge last week, huh?
It just makes your heart feel good to combine
friendships and creativity! :)
And speaking of hearts, 
let's get to our challenge!

This week the challenge is photo inspiration!
Use this photo to create a layout, card or other 
paper project :) Are you inspired by the hearts, or the 
colors, or the super cute sayings, or maybe you'd like to 
create something that includes candy? So many possibilities!

i love using hearts on my pages and it was easy with this cute fancy pants paper and glitter hearts and bling... i knew these little pictures of my littlest in her "loveable" outfit would be perfect! i did not use any cardstock on this page at all, so unique for me! -Lisa

I love hearts so when I saw the photo inspiration,  I knew it,  that I'd like to make a page with a lot of little hearts and this is the result.  -Marilyn

The photo inspiration works perfectly with these paper collection. I'm just sayin'  ^_^ -Suzy
When I saw this inspirational photo, I knew I had to use this small hearts patterned paper from Sassafras Lass "Count me In" collection, it goes perfect with this picture from my children's cousins. I treasure very much this photo! They live in New Jersey, and we do not get to see them very often. -Yara

A neighbor gift for Valentines Day! The tag reads: "I couldn't send you flowers, and candy wouldn't do. Romantic cards just didn't say the things I wanted to. So, I got you something special and here's the inside scoop. It's very rare and magical: A jar of Cupid Poop!"  Cute huh?!  -Amy

This picture is one of my all-time favorites. It's the very first time my daughter Emily held her baby sister and she was soooooo happy. :) I used the My Mind's Eye Alphabet Soup (Girls) collection and it was seriously hard to cut into!! It's one of those collections that I wanted forever and I just adore it. I guess I can always get more of it though. ;) -April
