One more Love!

A few years ago, my youngest daughter used to play near a pond that had frogs, so we used to tease her about being down at the pond kissing frogs. Ever since then, she has lovingly been called the frog kisser. So, when Elizabeth Bell came out with this adorable image I KNEW I just had to have it. Then the challenge on the Elizabeth Bell Challenge blog for February was to create an altered item with the theme of Love. It didn't take me long to decide what I wanted to make. I had this tin from Christmas - it was filled with chocolate and almond covered toffee (one of my favorites) - the toffee is all gone, but the tin was something I knew I would do something with eventually. So, I set about last night grabbing the DSP from Stampin' Up! and covering the tin with it. I added pretty in pink ribbon around the bottom part of the tin and then added real red ribbon on the lid.The hearts are cut on my Big Shot with the
spellbinders scalloped heart dies. I used the two smallest hearts and just layered them on top of each other. I added the hearts to the lid and then added a few roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. My sweet image of the 'frog kisser' is colored with prisma color pencils. I added the tiny pearls from Stampin' Up! to her crown. I added a couple layered hearts sponged with real red to the side of the tin and added a few extra roses. I plan to give this to my youngest daughter today as she has had a hard time adjusting to the move and fitting in with the groups at her school. I just have to find something to fill the tin with - like her favorite treat! :)
Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at my creation. I am entering this in the Elizabeth Bell Challenge for this month - and just in time too - today is the deadline!!

The colours are so pretty on this & I like how you've layered those hearts reversing the colours on the side. That's such a thoughtful gift for your daughter too. Hope she starts to settle in & adjust soon.
