Valentine's Day With A Heart Bouquet

Hello everyone!!  I hope that you are having a very pleasant Valentine's Day with your loved ones.  My husband is out of town, so I am spending the day with my kids.  We exchanged sweet little Valentine's and we are having their favorite dinner.....Spaghetti.  We are also having a movie marathon.  I have a little break and thought I would share with you what I made for my hubby.  He was saying how he would like to have some updated pictures of the kids for his desk and since I took some new photos of them last week, I thought it would be fun to make a heart bouquet for him. 

I used my Sweethearts cartridge and my Cricut to make the hearts (and even to cut the photos into heart shapes).  The sticks are just bamboo skewers from my kitchen and the glass container is from a has been sitting around my house waiting for another use for a few years was too pretty to throw away.  I dressed it up with some SRM stickers and ribbon.  Those fab little pebbles inside are the "skittles" that were so popular a year or two ago.  I dyed some of them with some alcohol ink and used them to fill up my glass container.

So, tell me, how are you celebrating the day??

Remember, if you go over and follow the fabulous SRM blog and then come back here and leave a comment on any post that you are following the SRM blog, I will put your name in for some blog candy that I will draw for on March 1st.  I will get a picture posted this week of the goodies that are up for grabs for helping me out (and maybe it will motivate you a little more {wink}).  Thanks to everyone that has already helped me out with this....I am keeping track and have you entered.  Thanks for stopping by!!
