Marshmallow fun with my silly girl

 marshmallow eyes
 feeding her puppy
 I made some pages with some files from Little Scraps of Heaven 
 I made the turtle sit with her legs crossed, the valentines from these pages were a 12 by 12 sheet of scrapbook paper I bought, sorry I don't have the strip to tell you where it's from.
I enlarged the turtle's shell and her scalloped heart to make the frames for the pages as well.
 The strip of paper is just a pale green I used to break up the teal.  I love this color of paper so much! I use it a lot.  For this frame I put the smaller heart inside the scalloped heart on my MT screen and viola! A frame
 Here I used the inside of the frame and created a tree top and then cut  2 birds from scraps to go with the cuckoo valentine
 Here is the close up of the bird and below of my little turtle, aren't they too cute!
 Emily's nickname is Peanut so when I saw this file I HAD to get it. Pay no attention to the mishap on the heart, no joke, I tried to cut it 5 times and finally didn't want to waist anymore of my glorious glitter paper so I just had to go with it. I left off the hat because she needed a flower in her hair.  I cut her from blush card stock then used 2 different colors of colored pencil to make lines to mimic the  lines on a peanut the best I could. Her shoes are glittered paper too.
 Here is another heart, with cute little flowers
Then, I stepped back and realized I needed more on these pages, so I added Sweetheart to this page, it's from the Once Upon a Princess Cricut cartridge, I used the Best Friends Imagine Cartridge to fill in the pattern.
 And on this page it had to have a title so I added Peanut I love you.  Again the pattern is filled in from the Best Friends Imagine cartridge.  The font is from the Cricut font cartridge.  The I heart you is from the same cartridge.

 I also made a few valentine cards as well, this is a fun fold for cards, the matchbook I guess you'd call it.  It's an 8 1/2 by 11 piece of paper cut at 4 1/4 on the 8 1/2 side then score at 1 1/2 then at 7 if I remember correctly.
 Here's the front of the cards, I wish I had the sizzix die of the clock hands now, would have been cute to put a real spinner on the front of the card.
Thanks for stopping by, make sure to come back tomorrow for my part in the blog hop from Erica's craft room.  Head over there today because the first half of the design team is doing a hop today too.
