♥ Love is in the Air! ♥

You can just feel it...all the crafters blogs are full of love creations...stores are selling there Valentines merchandise...the warmth of winter...the love between parent and child. (Well that is all year long!) But LOVE is definitely in the air!

Of course, I am in LOVE crafting mode lately too! All the pretty pinks, reds and whites. But I decided to go a different color route for this one! I ♥ this new line by Graphic 45. Once Upon a Springtime. It just screams romance!
I used 2 different papers, a die-cut frame and the Souvenir post card is all from the line. I also used a Melissa Frances rub-on, satin ribbon, Prima flower, punched Martha Stewart butterflies and heart, pearls and some Webster's Pages trim.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

~ Creatalicious Challenges: Challenge #18, Ribbon
~ "Just us Girls" Challenge: Color challenge #67, Aqua, Coral, Green

A Local Police Officer was just killed in the next town over from us on Friday night. Such a shame. So young. Only 27, newly engaged. Very sad! But very happy to report that his ruthless killer was just caught a few hours ago! I hope justice will be served to the fullest degree! My brother-in-law is a Memphis Cop. Actually a Lieutenant. So my heart sinks when I hear of a police officer being killed. My ♥ goes out to his fiance' and family. RIP Officer Christopher Matlosz.

Have a wonderful and blessed day! Hug your loved ones!

Hugs....
