REAL Hugs and Kisses!

OK don't even ask me to explain what has happened to my life, but it seems that just a few minutes ago it was Tuesday and all was well and then, well you know what they say.... All He** broke loose!!  I can't believe it is Thursday and that I haven't blogged in a couple of days!!  Man!! I hate when that happens!!

I finished this project late Tuesday night and after waiting for the stickles to dry, I just didn't have the energy to get my blog post ready.  And now here it is Thursday evening and I am finally getting the chance to do it!!

 I made my project today for the current challenge going on over at the Paper Craft Planet in the Whimsie Doodles Forum.  Kelli gave us the challenge this week and it is called Keeping it Real.  We were supposed to substitute something stamped with something real.!!  Like if there is a hair bow on the stamped image, instead of coloring in the bow, you could attach a real ribbon made into a bow!!  Get it??

Well my project involves chocolate, so I know all my lady friends are going to love this one!! I have put REAL Hershey Hugs and Kisses inside this cute container I found on line!!  I guess I didn't really substitute my candy for the stamped ones, but I did include REAL ones too!

I call this the Whimsie Doodle Kit and Kaboodle!!  It also qualifies for this week's challenge on Digital Tuesday Challenge Blog.  Their challenge was to create a Valentine's Day Card using a digistamp.  This isn't exactly a card, but it is still the right theme!

Kit and Kaboodle is the name that the creator of this project, Rochelle Wick calls it.  So I didn't want to change that.  You can see her blog post about her creation HERE!  And you can also get the instructions for the project from the ScorPal website HERE!

This little teepee shaped holder is the perfect container to hold six Hershey Kisses and Hugs!  Isn't it  just adorable??  I printed the XO border strip from Whimsie Doodle's latest release called Lil Cupid onto pink CS twice, so that when it was folded according to the directions, the border was right side up for both the front and back portions.  I then colored and embellished the digital  "Hugs and Kisses with Copics and Stickles!  The REAL Hugs and Kisses (the chocolate) are hidden inside!!  LOL!

I created the tag using the same Lil Cupid digistamp set and did some masking on the computer screen to alter the sentiment to say the phrase you see above.  The original sentiment in the stamp set just says "for my Sweetie."

From this angle you can see how the Stickles really makes the hearts (hugs) pop!! 

I colored the letters and candies in with my Copic markers.  Have I told you my really exciting news yet??  This Sunday I will be travelling to Sarasota to get Copics certified.  Woohoo!! I am so happy about this and can't wait.  I have all four of the Ciao Copic sets and the airbrush system, so I am stoked about getting to improve on my techniques.  If you look closely at my projects, you will see that I need some improvement!!  LOL!

Gonna call it a night!  I am happy I finally got to share this with you!  I will be back in the morning with some Unity stuff!! It is FWF Friday tomorrow!!

Have a great night and may your bucket overflow with all kinds of hugs and kisses...the REAL ones and the chocolate ones too!!
