sponsored by Thirty-one

The theme for our hop is RED HOT

Hope you just arrived from Just Yolie, Just Create, but if you happened to be visiting my blog and wish to join in, please start HERE    ------- and if you are here for the CWC HOP click HERE

It was hard coming up with something using paper, because all that it kept coming to mind was ----
... OK Gaby,  what is Red Hot? ..... think paper Gaby, paper..
Sorry, could not help myself!!

Now This is Red Hot!!!!  LOL (and I am not talking about the Ferrari!)
I know, I know, but I have never been a person to have an Idol or post posters on my bedroom wall, not even as a young teenage girl, but I have always though that Tom Selleck/Magnum PI was the man with everything that I think is attractive in a male, from head to toe!!!!   LOL (I'll spare you my description!!)

I was able to distract myself from that Red Hot and move on to Melin's Beautiful creations!  I asked her if I could please scraplift her LO, and being the sweet person that she is, said of course!! 
I created this LO with her files and my Pazzles--

I will place pictures of DH and I having Valentine's Dinner on Sunday

Printers Tray -- ATC Photo Tray by 7 Gypsies using Love Struck and MM Je t'Adore

Welcome to another Tuesday with Happy N Scrappin
Using the Making Memories Je t'Adore Collection I have created
this ATC and Photo Display Tray that you can find at the store

From Left to Right --For the Kiss word I used Glossy Accents and MS chunky glitter on the heart-  I also used a 1/2" piece of PP and stitched it across.  On the heart of hearts I used stickles on some of the little hearts.  On the following space I used ribbon and a sticker from the collection. And on the last one I used stickels again on some parts.  I distressed all of my base pieces. 
For the middle section -- I used stickles on the middle heart and MS chunky glitter at the edge of the heart and stitching on my base PP piece. Next, I added some pearls and a piece of flower from MM.  On the third one, again some stickles and MS chunky glitter and a piece of PP lace I punched using a MS punch. For the lips I just used stickles. I distress all my base PP pieces.
And for the bottom row I started with yet another sticker from the collection and a ribbon I tied around my base piece before adhering.  On the Flirts word I used once again some stickles and MS chunky glitter.  On the last two pieced I added stitching and distressed all base pieces.  My third piece or heart was colored, more like dubbed all over with acrylic white paint dubber.  And on the last one, I just added pearls.

I finished the tray with a double bow, some pearl pins and heart and key metal charms.

All the cuts are from the Cricut Love Struck Cartridge -- HappyNScrappin sells ProvoCraft items

I am entering in several challenges for the first time
There are so many, phew!!!
