As always, I had a Great Fun

German Glass Glitter!
( Got a little carried away with this one! LOL)
And the fun mini-bottle caps, and
the White Alpha Beads with Hearts!!

and Kristin's also just listed recently
these Acrylic Easels!!

But wait!

I still had pieces left over from the
Shrine Kit so I took a CD Case
and Painted the Shrine Kit piece
with Retro's DecoArt Metal Paint,
and used the Metal Heart that
also is from Retro Cafe Art Gallery,
Alpha Beads, and stamped it all with
a 'Music' Stamp and Walla!

So Happy Valentine's Day coming
