Valentine Mailboxes

I was so happy that I actually found some of these mail boxes at Target this year. I love the Target Dollar Spot, I find so many cute things there, especially gift containers that can be altered. I had a hard time finding paper that I liked for this project. Most all of the paper I found had the hearts orientated in one direction which made them upside down on one side of the mail box. I was really happy with this Paper Studio paper that I found at Hobby Lobby. It looks good in both directions. The initials on the from used the CTMH Solo Letters and then I used pink embossing powder. Those pink foam hearts are covering my mistake that I made around the flag! Mistakes are just embellishment opportunities, right? Both mailboxes are stuffed with nail polishes, nail files and a pedicure set. I try to not do so much candy, but each girl also has a small sampling of their favorite candy, Fun-Dip for Samantha and Reese's hearts for Jenna.

We had a lovely Valentine breakfast this morning at Cracker Barrel. Kip normally eats breakfast with his Dad on Saturdays. I love eating breakfast out, but not enough to get up and out of the house. Hope your day was great.

These are so cute and I know all about covering mistakes with embellishments - after all isn't that what mistakes are - design opportunities...
