Altered Valentine Mailbox

Good Morning! I was FINALLY able to get my hands on a couple of these tin mailboxes from the Target $1 Spot (YAY!!!). I tried the last two years, but every time I went there they were sold out. I only picked up two; one for each of my Daughters. I plan on giving each of them one for Valentine's Day filled with candy and a gift card to their favorite store. This was my first time altering one these mailboxes and I have to say, thanks to Emily's Tutorial, it was super simple. I used the cupid cuppie and the happy heart day sentiment from the SASI set, Love is Sweet, and colored them in with Copic Markers. I did, however, use a silver pen to color in the bow. The cardstock, patterned paper, and ribbon are all from the Valentine Key Ingredients from Taylored Expressions. I can't wait to alter the second one this weekend.

Today is the second day of SNEAK PEEKS for the two new releases by Storage Units, Ink & More. They are called GOIN' TO THE CHAPEL and BLARNEY STONE and they will be available starting February 1st. Make sure to stop by the following design team members blogs to see the sneak peeks they have in store for you today. You will not want to miss their ADORABLE (and I mean adorable) creations.
