Pals February Blog Hop! Hop Along!

Another month has gone by and the Pals are ready to Hop! I hope you enjoy browsing our blogs and finding new ways to create! 

Thank you for joining us for the February Pals Blog Hop! Today the Stampin' Pretty Pals are excited to share some Valentine-themed projects made with our favorite Stampin' Up! products.

I'm stop #14, so you should have come from stop #13, Rae Harper's Wild West Paper Arts. If so, you are in the right spot. If you get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move from blog to blog so you can see all of the amazing creations.

I used the frame from the Halloween Kit 2012 to make a Valentine-themed collage. The photo is from a cruise my husband and I went on years ago, but I plan to replace it with a more current photo before I reveal it to him on Valentine's Day!
