DeNami Design VALENTINE BLOG HOP!



Good morning Bloggeritas and welcome to Two Tears in my Bucket!  I'm glad that you stopped by.  You should have arrived here from:Rae Ann's sweet little blog!   If you just stumbled upon this blog and need to start from the beginning please go to the DeNami blog.  We are well on our way to celebrating Valentines Day!  My husband always does a great job of sweeping me off my feet.  I know you're probably new to my blog but, I don't show off my altered items too often.  I have low altered item esteem (dramatic I know...lol!).  BUT...I thought it would be nice to alter these wooden samples I received from my job.  I work for an architecture firm and they just toss this stuff out when they're done...do you believe that? 

Tell me what you think!



So, I decoupaged some paper from the "Lost&Found" collection from My Mind's Eye on to the front of the wooden block.  See that Eiffel Tower?  Nothing says love like Paris!  Then, I punched some clouds out of some paper from the same pack with my Lil' Inker cloud dies.  Finally, I paper pieced the cherub and blinged out his wings.  The rest is glue gun history!


I hope you enjoyed my project!

The next stop on this hop of love is:  Ruza's neat blog!

Oh, and I would be remiss to not tell you:
DeNami is giving away THREE $20 gift certificates to their website!  They'll be giving away one gift certificate to a random participant and  then they'll also be giving away TWO gift certificates to TWO people who comment along the hop!DeNami is giving away THREE $20 gift certificates to their website!  They'll be giving away one gift certificate to a random participant and  then they'll also be giving away TWO gift certificates to TWO people who comment along the hop!

Thanks for stopping by!

Rochelle- this is sooo cool! And how awesome that you made it with something that would have been tossed! I think you need to take it in to work as a decoration there... another way they can show off their products, lol!
