Love for little girls

I have three little girls, so I had to create 3 packages for Valentine's Day. When I saw these $1 mailboxes at Target, I knew they were perfect. They are going to love playing with the mailboxes afterwards. This red one is for my oldest. Red and green (and white to think of it) are her favorite colors. The Pixie Cottage #107 challenge is to use red and lots of it. I'm also using today's Papertrey Ink Challenge (part of their 5th anniversary party going on) to use hearts and the Delightful Sketches challenge to show love.

Here's a close-up of the flower and the leaves with "heart" berry clusters. The leaves and border die are both fom PTI.

The next picture shows the mailbox I created for my middle daughter. Her fav. color is pink and she has a stuffed monkey that is her constant companion. Isn't this little pink guy cute? He is from Verve's "To the Moon" set.

This last picture shows all three mailboxes ready to go.

Hi Heather,

Thanks for your visit to my blog!

I'm so glad I tracked you back - you know I havea couple of these mailboxes I bought ages back for my husband and I to leave little love notes in for each other, only ours kind of stood up?

What a terrific idea. Thanks for sharing!
