WW Weekly Challenge - "All About Love"

Hello My Bloggie Friends, 
I'm hoping you all are having a fantastic Wednesday.  Guess what today is?
Yes, it's another weekly Challenge at 

This weeks theme is "All About Love"
You know that Valentine's Day is just around the corner and this challenge just put me in the mood for LOVE... 

This week we all used the Whimsical Designs Stamp Set 
called "With Love". 
It's such a great set for this lovely Holiday. 

Here is what I created:
Altered TP Roll
 Yes, you heard me... It's a TP (toilet paper) roll.  I thought this would be the perfect project for this week. 
Don't you think?

I'm also entering this into Lydia's (ItripledogdareU on Youtube).  
Here is a Video Link to her challenge, if you are interested in entering. 

I flatten the TP roll on one side only to form a pocket.  I covered the TP with a Vintage Key tissue paper, I got from Michaels with modpodge.  I also modpodge a red doily heart that I got from Target too.  I used a cameo from the embossed chipboard pieces from Michaels.  I covered it with white acrylic paint and used sandpaper to shave off the paint off the raised areas. Added some pearl trim and a butterfly trim piece to the cameo.  I also added glossy accents to the center of the cameo.  Distress the heck out of it with Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain distress ink.  I also distress and used some flowers from Trico.  Tucked a felt heart in the back of the cameo.  Stamped the Sentiment from Whimsical Designs Stamps set - With Love in Real Red SU ink.  Cut a banner out and distress the edges.  Added  a stick pin I made for a swap I was in at MSR Ning Site.   At the top and bottom of the TP I added some lace and pearl trim from my stash.  Lastly, I used some flower lace trim for the handle to my TP pocket. 

Thanks everyone for stopping by today!
Have a great week.  I'll be back soon.
