Whooo's Your Valentine? {National Papercrafting Month Blog Hop}

Close To My Heart is offering an adorable "Whooo's Your Valentine" kit for National Papercrafting Month in January, but the party is getting started early on 12/13!  Join me and my talented group of stamp of the month blog hoppers for this special mid-month blog hop.  (If you've arrived from Karen's blog, welcome!  Continue hopping on to Heather's blog next.)
With a minimum $35 qualifying purchase, you can order this sweet kit for only $10!  You get an exclusive stamp set, 12 die-cut boxes, three cardstock sheets, NEW silver glitter paper, and 12 NEW treat tubes with lids.  (Click HERE to learn more or to purchase yours.)  For my project, I wanted to show how you could use this kit for more than just Valentine's.

The sentiment "UR my favorite" really called to me.  Here's my first favorite daughter through the years.  (I will add journaling before I give the layout to her for her album.)  I added Slate cardstock and ink to the Blush, Hollyhock, and White Daisy combo.  (The Blush ribbon is retired.)  Rather than cut up the silver glitter paper- Yet!- I used the fabulous silver glitter trim.
I used a sketch from the Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 1 how-to guide.

To glam it up, I used some pink and silver glitter glitz gel plus clear sparkles.

Her name is stamped with the retiring Bohemian Alphabet and then accented with more silver glitter glitz gel.
Isn't that little owl cute?
This color combo is perfect for the current Dynamic Duos color challenge!  That's why I made my pink version first. ;)
On the right page, you can see the bigger owl too.  I accented both owls' eyes with more silver glitz gel.

When I complete my journaling on the White Daisy piece, I will probably add a strip of the silver shimmer tape to line up with the tape already on the layout.

Of course my other favorite daughter will be getting her own layout, but in her favorite color, blue.  (Come back so that you can see that one too!)
Thanks for hopping by!  Now go see Heather's adorable layout!
