Valentine Treat Bags
Hi Guys! I went to work this morning and it was below freezing. I left early because a winter storm brought several inches of snow around Alabama today. The storm brought rain, sleet and snow...and it was just beautiful!! That's why I left work early, so I could come home and go out on my patio (it's glassed in) and swing on my wicker swing while listening to classical music and just watch the snow. I have a heater out there so it was nice and toasty. It was coming down in great big flakes and lots of it too. As you know, we do not get much snow here in Bama, so when we do, we mostly stay at home because we are not used to driving in these conditions. However, this afternoon I am going to (my niece's daughter) Elsa Grace's 4th Birthday Party. It wil be a Sleeping Beauty Themed Party and Sleeping Beauty herself will be there. I cannot wait to see the look on Elsa Grace's face when Sleeping Beauty appears.
These Valentine Treat Bags were a lot of fun to make. I just used themed paper that I got from Hobby Lobby, put the bags together and topped it with my heart's Cuttlebug topper. I embellished with Nestabilities Heart embossing sets, Festive Fur Yarn, and Swarovski Crystals.
It is going to be 19 degrees later today...and Lord only knows what tomorrow morning will bring. I know some of you are laughing at me because you are probably used to this kind of weather and worse...I like the weather where I live and I don't believe that I could live up north and deal with the cold...but I am sure there are plenty of you that love it. Hey, I love going to the mountains, does that count? Have a great weekend :)
