( UPDATE) Graphics from Dover " Valentines Keeper"

(UPDATE) : Project 1 of 50 for the New Years resolution! Do you remember in grade school when you made big ole construction paper valentines holders? Some times like this or maybe an old milk carton or oatmeal container was used. Either way, I remember decorating it for little valentine cards. Do the children even do this anymore? Or has this become Politically incorrect somehow as well? I hope not because, It was about love...and being kind. Even to the people you may not have appreciated, aka "Bobby the nervous booger eater" for me UGH!

Today I was setting around relaxin and realized I haven't looked at my clip art books in a while...I love graphics and if you like G45 paper so do you..or the Graphic Fairy on and on....Anyway I started pulling things off the handy disc in the back of the book (Dover) and copic-ed away! I am going to show you this one in stages so that maybe you will or can do the same. Hope this gives you inspiration.

Atlanta Intermediate...."COPICGASMM"!

Hey ya- all I went to the Intermediate Copic class and even though I am simply burnt out with info.....I have the piece of paper to prove it  ;)  Got some free stuff and had a great time with hubby met some new friends and was able to shop the mother ship "IKEA". And a little advice Don't leave the craft studio piled high then go shopping everywhere and expect to fit it all in. Good Grief!  For those of you that may wonder...yes I did! I bought the BIG table whoo freakin whoooooooo! This is gonna be a interesting holiday if the beginning of the month is any proof of the karma of things. Hope you all have had a great week.
