CTMH Spotlight January Blog Hop: Valentine's

 Hi Everyone!
This month at the CTMH Spotlight we are featuring Valentine's Day!  It is one of my favorite days, simply because we can express our love for our friends and family more openly than any other day.  I am #8 on the blog hop list, so you should be arriving from Haley's Blog.

 The inspiration for this is a Chinese Food "To Go" box.  I love it because it can work for almost any occasion and the matching fortune cookies, have special love messages attached to the ribbon.
I used the new paper packet "Sweetheart" from Close To My Heart and the matching stamp set also named "Sweetheart".  But the best part was using the new "Spray Pens" for the backgrounds. 
 I hope you are inspired to share the love and create some treats for all your loved ones! Next on our hop is the very talented Debbie Carriere.  
Don't forget to show your love and leave a comment on your favorites, we sure do appreciate it when we your comments!!!

I've had several emails requesting the template for this project.  I finally found the link for the website... Can I just tell you that I have WAY TOO MANY BOOKMARKS in my computer.  I need to organize those a little better too.  Well, the template was only $5 and it's super easy to recreate.
