Good morning and welcome to round two of this month's Issue Let's Play Post Office at Paper Issues! Haven't played along with one of our Issues yet? Here are some ideas to get you started

-Use office supplies like binder clips, tags, push pins, postage stamps and envelopes. -Alter a clipboard. -Include stamping on your project. -Document a piece of mail or a love letter. -Create a layout about your latest Paper Issues package (either a photo of the box and/or contents). -Show us your kids, grandchildren, etc. at play. -Share something about Valentine's Day/love.

I was mostly inspired by these photos and the story they tell. So I went with the envelope/love letter idea. This Fancy Pants Sweet Nothings has been staring me in the face. Especially when I saw that SWAK in the ephemera pack! I love the variety of embellishments with this collection. The tags and puffy stickers are the best! I have them mixed in each of my embellishment clusters. I love that there are other patterns and colors in this line so I can use it for other purposes than Valentines.

My son is affectionate as they come. He will hug, cuddle and snuggle, but has never given us kisses. For some reason, this time when I said "give Dad a kiss", he did! It was a big, sloppy, wet, toddler like first kiss, but we didnt care! The funniest part about it, was when We asked him to 'give Mom a kiss", he shook his head NO. 

Thanks as always for being here with me and my creative view. I loved playing with  Fancy Pants Sweet Nothings and am happy we had it as one of our Product Spotlights this month. I'm also happy to play along at Scrap Our Stash this month and their tic-tac toe board. I used the top row: red, polka dot paper and tags.
