Adore Valentine's Day Plate

Well, after I got done making my little love squares, I started looking around for something else that I can make into some Valentine's Day decor and came up with a black plate that I had originally bought to do as a wedding gift but hadn't gotten around to it.  It's been sitting in my "stash" FOREVER!  LOL.  Anyway, one of the challenges was to use my oldest bling so I decided to use the plate as I've had it forever and it's so shiny it has to qualify for bling!  :-)  I absolutely LOVE how this turned out and it is my FAVORITE Valentine project.  It looks so cute behind my love blocks.  All in all, not a bad day for decorating and using a bunch of old items.   Even the vinyl I've had for several years at least 3 or 4!  LOL.  Have I mentioned that I hoard scrapbook supplies?  Actually I shouldn't say I hoard them, but when I get a really good deal on something I tend to buy a LOT so I have all this surplus of inexpensive sweetness to choose from and I'm so grateful because it can make cute and inexpensive projects-when I get around to using it!  LOL.  The plate I think was a dollar store find and I used leftover vinyl from another project so this cost at the most $1.25!  SCORE one for me!  :-)
