Cocoa Valentines

Hi there! Happy Tuesday. I hope you had a wonderful day off yesterday (if you had Martin Luther King Jr. day off). We had a busy Monday off. My older 2 girls went for a playdate in the morning, then off to the dentist, gymnastics, and dance class. Never a dull moment around here! Well today is Tuesdays, which means...a new Crazy 4 Cocoa Challenge!!!! This week we have a color challenge for you. We want to see your Cocoa images with Pink and Red. Just in time for your Valentine's day projects. Here is what I came up with. I sent my DH to the store to grab these little boxes of chocolates for me. You know the ones that are only $1, and have like 3 or 4 pieces of yummies in them. Well, I thought it would be fun to "fix" them. So I started by coloring this Cocoa Heart digi image. This is one of the newest Cocoa digi images released. I colored him with markers, and fussy cut along the heart. Next I used some PP I picked up from the Target $1 spot last week, and covered the tops of the boxes. I added some ribbon or Ric-rack, bows and heat set gems. Here is a close up of each box. Aren't they cute? My DH and I are going to give them to our girls for Valentine's day. I was originally going to use them for my middle daughter's dance class (since she only has 3 kids in the class), but I liked them too much...lol. SO I will come up with something else for dance.
Now it is your turn! Head on over to the Crazy 4 Cocoa Challenge blog, and see what the other DT members have come up with. Then make a project using red and pink, and a Cocoa image, and link it up so we can check it out. I really enjoy seeing what everyone comes up with using Cocoa images. Oh, and if you don't have any Cocoa images yet...what are you waiting for????!!! Head on over to the Sweet 'n Sassy store, and grab a few. They are available in digi form, and clear stamps.

Very cute! The girls will love them and I'm sure they will find some goodies to put in the boxes once the yummy stuff is gone.

What a sweet and special gift for your little ones! They'll just love these, and especially because they were made so lovingly by mom! Very well done, and very cute!!
