"RILEY" wall hanging by lauren bergold

the best thing to ever happen on valentine's my own very subjective opinion...was the birth of my eldest niece, riley! so i like to celebrate by making something particularly fancy and heart-strewn for that young lady. at some point she will probably grow tired of valentine-themed birthday parties and presents, but so far she still likes them, so i'm going to sneak in one more year, at least!

this started as an oversized card, but at some point i realized it was large enough (the largest heart is nearly 9x9") and heavy enough that i should just attach a bit of ribbon and call it a "wall hanging"!

i've used four patterned papers from the MY FUNKY VALENTINE kit, as well as vintage sheet music, pink cardstock and a bit of the beautiful american crafts lace paper. i've got some of the fun vintage diecuts on there, one of the memory lock and key sets, some of the maya road chipboard alphas (inked & glittered) and of course my favorite dear lizzy rose ribbon trim.

as you can plainly see: my heart--and my valentine--are both overflowing with love and goodness for the special birthday girl! ♥♥♥

Kirsty's note -
That is another pretty project for the special birthday girl, thanks Lauren!
