Hello Again!!

This is my second post for today.  And it's a record breaker- 2 posts in one day! :)

For this post I am sharing my Scrapping 4 Fun Challenges design team project.  This current challenge is a Valentine's Day challenge with 2 parts.  Part 1) create a card or layout based on this sketch:
Part 2) Share how you met your significant other.

So let's begin with part 1.  It's hard to detect, but I added glossy accents to the straws and to the 2 hearts in the middle.  I stamped the soda bottle, fussy cut it, and placed it on pop dots for some dimension. 

I typed my sentiment on the computer and cut it into a banner.  I used faux & real stitching on this card.
(Supplies: pattern paper, cardstock, stamp- Unity Stamp Company, sequins, black ink, red & white pens, machine stitching, glossy accents, pop dots, computer software)

Part 2: How I met my husband? 
I was grocery shopping and I ran into my neighbor.  He began telling me about one of his coworkers and he wanted me to meet him.  I was NOT interested because I had just gotten out of a relationship.  But my neighbor was VERY insistent, which was completely out of his character.  He said, "I'm not asking you to marry him!  I'm just asking you to meet him!"  I had never heard him raise his voice- not even at his 4 kids!! So to appease him, I went on a blind date with his coworker.  That turned out to be the one and ONLY blind date I ever had. :D 

There you have it folks!  Not many people knew this story. ;)  Glad I could share it with you. :D
So how did you meet your significant other?  Get your projects posted to Scrapping 4 Fun Challenges by Feb. 20 and share your stories with us.  I would love to hear them. :)

Thanks for stopping in to visit!!

Happy Crafting,
