Chocolate Hearts?

I just wanted to share with you today a medallion that I made Sunday. The medallion piece is actually made with Stampin Up's Border Scallop punch. I saw these beautiful medallion pieces over on Joans fabulous site, you can see them here. She made hers for Christmas, naturally, but since Christmas is now OVER!!! (YAY), I adapted mine for Valentines Day.

This gorgeous heart is from one of Stampin Up's NEW Level 2 Hostess sets that will be coming out on January 19th. It is called A Little Somethin'. And if I guess correctly, I BELIEVE there will be a new HEART punch that will be coming out also that will punch this heart out for us instead of having to cut it out by hand. (This is only my OPINION and NOT fact yet)!!!

There is a very easy tutorial over on Taylor's blog that tells you step by step instructions on how to make these little pieces. You can find that tutorial over here. So I made the red piece with Riding Hood Red cardstock and then the smaller piece from Pink Pirouette cardstock. I stamped the heart in Chocolate Chip, cut it out and covered it with glitter. I then mounted that onto the medallion. I then finished off the corners with the half pearls from the Pretties Kit and added the white dots with the gel pen.

Total time to make this: 15 minutes!!! Quick & Easy

Have a great day all!!!

To answer your question...we go to Belton Lake about 10 miles from home. It is a huge lake and such beautiful camping areas. We have been to several camp grounds in Texas and this is the nicest one and right in out back yard!! Maybe you should come down and try it out!!!!!
