Love & Romance @ Diva's

Good Morning to my lovely friends, I hope you have all cleared a path to your doors for the postman tomorrow morning! LOL I'm not expecting any Valentines cards but it is a happy time of year and it's nice to get caught up in all the love and romance and that's just what we are doing over at


our theme today is exactly that

Love & Romance

Here is what I came up with
 I've used this cute little Tiddly Inks image that I got last year with a voucher bought for me by my lovely teammie here at Diva's, Sarah (Thank you Hunny I love her)
The papers are last years from MME and the red lace is from a pack by Marianne. Assorted die cuts including my new heart in the background from Memory Box and flowers from WOC

We are sponsored today by

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details and some LOVE-ly inspiration from my teammies. I'll be back tomorrow with some more love to spread at MAWTT

Thank you for stopping by
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx
