Just Add Ink #298 - Just Add anything with V

Hello friends ~

Well I missed blogging last week *insert sad face*.  I was extremely time poor...with the twins starting preschool and switching our swimming lesson day, Gorgeous Kid returning to school and of course all the notes home that I needed to read through, and action.  And that was only week one! My routine has been so messed up and I don't cope well with that.  Week two is coming to an end and I've had a better handle on things this week thankfully.  Still some fine tuning to do though - I'm hoping at least some of you can relate and it's not just me struggling with the back to school rush?!

Welcome to the new challenge at Just Add Ink!  This week Tina has suggested we add anything with a V - perfectly timed for Valentine's Day.  And that's just what I did.  I love the little Chubby Chums images from Paper Smooches and couldn't resist adding them to the awesome SU Crumb Cake note cards and envelopes.  The perfect size for school lunch boxes, however, I'm thwarted this year with Valentine's Day falling on a Sunday.  Perhaps I'll serve them up with a special brekky....

I added some Real Red Glimmer Paper hearts to this little guy.

And some Blushing Bride Glimmer paper hearts to this little miss.

I'm sure there are loads of other 'V' ideas and the design team would love to see them, so please share your gorgeous creations with us.  Pop over to JAI and get yourself some inspiration.

I've got a social weekend ahead - catching up with a long time friend Friday night, dinner with a few special girlfriends Saturday night and next week my in-laws are arriving from interstate to stay for just over a week (the twins are turning 4) so we're hanging new blinds in the room they'll be using. It's one of those jobs we just keep putting off...good reason to get it done.

Hope you've got some fun plans for the weekend!
