L.O.V.E. Banner

Decorating for Valentines hasn't always been high on my priority list, but this year I've made a little extra effort because it's Kristina & Joe's first wedding anniversary.

I've been experimenting with different banners
because I wanted to give them one for their first anniversary
This one isn't theirs,
but I might show you the one I made for them later on.
Why didn't this one make the cut?
I liked it, except when I painted the card stock with chalkboard paint it curled up and didn't look as perfect as I wanted it to. 
(for them anyway)
in case you're wondering ... Kristina is our daughter
This experimental banner ended up above our headboard. 
We've been wanting to hang something there, 
and as it's turned out 
This Banner Looks Just Perfect
if you squint your eyes

We're Just A Couple Of Romantics!
Conversation Hearts 
Have you looked at the heart candies this year?
They say things like 
"Sup Bab"

I even found one that said 
"Yes Dear" 
gave it to Buzz & said
"now this is what you say when I give you my  Honey Do list"

Then he found the one that said...
"Get Real"

It Was Pure Romance!

Thank You Richella for featuring my
"Bee Mine Banner"
at your party this week!
