Valentine's Display (Pion Design/Green Tara)

Kismet/Fate? Do you believe in it? Well, I was almost done this layout for Valentine's when TCR palette #95 revealed with the same colors I chose. This is the second time this has happened in the last 2 months - seriously! It is no secret that I am so IN LOVE with the Pion Design "From My Heart 2" collection. I had this layout idea with layered hearts (Royal Lace doilies from Michael's) and a lace border in my head but I couldn't find the right pictures. So... I made it into a display instead to put on my fireplace mantle for February - love month :) Oh this collection has such a glorious Romantic/Parisian feel to it! The beautiful vintage images I used are also from Pion Design and all of the embellishments are Green Tara products (flowers, lace and sprays).

Here is a close up of the flowers I made by simply layering Green Tara white petals and silk flowers (with crystal centers!). Oh I just love those crystal flowers and the pearl sprays too. Product codes are listed at the bottom of this post.
Here is the gorgeous TCR palette for this week:

I don't usually really like my own work - always find flaws but... I do love this one, LOL. It's just so me and suits my house decor perfectly. Thanks for stopping by! I will be back next week with a giveaway to celebrate my 2-year blog anniversary so stay tuned (it may just have a little Pion Design and Dusty Attic in it, wink :)
