My Vintage Valentine Wall Hanging!

Sorry about the quality of this photograph but it didn't seem to matter if I took it outside or inside I just couldn't get the thing to focus well because of its size! I am calling this my Vintage Valentine Wall Hanging for obvious reasons. The top picture is of my husband Chuck, wasn't my DH then!, just after we met back in 1974 and we went for a ride on his motorcycle...very James Deanian if you ask me. The second picture is of my sweetie taken recently. We have been married 37 years this next April 5th and I couldn't think of anything that says love, happiness, or caring for Valentines then this.

The panels are 6"x 6" black mat board covered with papers from FancyPants 'Love' line for this Valentines day. I used Tim Holtz edge die cuts top and bottom covered with Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint to give it a 'ruffled' look. I also used the cupid and heart movers and shapers dies, the lettering is all from a strip die. The photo mats are all dies from Stampin' Up! as is the banner punch. The white, blue, red card stock are from Stampin' Up!. If you are curious as to specific product used you can email me for details. I think I will teach this in a class on the 31 January at Whole Lotta Scrap if you would like to make one! I also just read the weekly challenge at Simon Says Stamp and I am going to enter this into this weeks challenge contest. Click on the link and check it out you might want to enter it too!
