Here are the featured blogs in our Valentine's Blog Hop:

So on with the show..............

For my little creation, I decided to make an 'Explosion Box'. Haven't made one for a while but this one came together perfectly. Here's the outside view.........

I used papers from the super sweet We R Memory Keepers 'Love Struck' line, which of course you can find at TSF. Here's a close up of the lid, showing one of the tags and clear acrylic stamps, which you can also find in the collection.............

Is this little guy not the cutest?

I think I could probably forgive him firing sharp pointy things in my direction!
He's coloured with Copic's and has a little super fine glitter added to his wings.

And finally the inside..............

No mass explosion, but the strands of acetate do bounce quite nicely in real life.
When I got around to adding the small hearts, I realized I didn't have a punch/die small enough, so they are actually portions cut from punched flowers.

For the center heart, I used a Martha Stewart punch and the trusty Dymo labeller made an appearance....................

Well that's all from me....I don't think I could possibly fit any more photo's in here!

Don't forgot to head on over to Joanne's blog to continue the 'Hop'........I'm sure she will have something beautiful to feast your eye's on.

Before you go, remember........
