Dimpled Beauty and more

Well here it is, Valentines Day! The supposed day of LOVE. Around here, everyday is a day of love, we dont need a special day for it. So how do we celebrate Valentines Day, Alan is sitting downstairs watching TV and I am sitting upstairs on my computer, and will be shortly going into my scrappy room. Later we will go all out on dinner and have Kraft dinner with beans. LOL Yes, it is a day the same as all others for us. Our big day is coming up though, just stay tuned :)

I have been having a lot of fun creating some beautiful flowers from some YouTube tutorials. Oh my gosh, have you seen all the tutorials on YouTube.. if you havent you should check it out.
On this first layout, the flowers were made using UTEE. Now on the tutorial she uses a melting pot for the UTEE and dips her flowers into the melted UTEE. I dont have a melting pot (nor am I going to buy one) so I just embossed them with the UTEE in the normal way, and I think they turned out just as nice as hers. I also hand cut the swirls, then I sprinkled them with a pale pink glitter and added some pearls. I did this layout for a challenge from SOS that Colleen gave us. We were to pick a number from 1 - 10. She sent me that Title card (without the text) in email and I was to use it on a layout.

This next one was a combined challenge. I created it for a Sketch challenge at WeScrap and for Jules slant-it challenge at Scrapbook Heaven. I used Echo Parks- Little Boy papers. The chipboard star is from Scenic Route, painted, then stamped with a stamp from Daisy Bucket, then covered with UTEE. Ribbon is unknown. Cardstock is coordinations.
This is the sketch:

This is what I did with it.
