Valentines/Love - MilkCoffee DT

Good morning everyone!

This morning I'm sharing my DT project for the new MilkCoffee challenge with you. The theme is Valentines/Love  and to celebrate this, there are two gorgeous new digis available in the shop... They are aptly called "Romeo" and "Juliet".

Now, my project comes with a little bit of a back story...

For Christmas I gave my husband a present with a twist... 12 Pre-paid and pre-planned dates. One for each month of this year. I spent most of last year secretly saving and planning, and now that I'm finally starting to hand him envelopes on the first of each month containing the details of that month's date, some thought must go into the presentation, of course!

Now, February is of course Valentines, and for our date this month I booked us a table at a lovely restaurant, and I have the money put aside to pay for the meal. However, it seemed a bit naff to just shove a wad of cash into an envelope, so instead I decided to use these gorgeous new MilkCoffee digis and I made a money holder!

I tried to model them on hubby and me (meaning, they have similar hair colour, only her hair is far prettier than mine!).

The paper is course is from LOTV's "Antebellum" pad.

And a peek at the inside... Look, I even used a velcro dot to keep it shut!

So there you have it. My valentine's project. Now, my fellow teamies have produced some incredible works of art, so I strongly suggest you go and see for yourself. And while you're there, I hope you'll be inspired to create something "love"-ly of your own!

Wishing you a fantabulous day!
