Graphic 45 Valentine Challenge

 I decided to join the Valentine's themed challenge on Graphic 45 and see if my submission might be chosen to win a wonderful prize package of their luscious products.  The project is supposed to be Valentine/Love themed and, of course use their paper and products.  This is what I came up with. 
  I found the heart at my local Craft Warehouse, and the tag album, then I got the idea.  I found hooks and went to town using they paper line "Mon Amour".  The above picture is my layout idea that I was playing with.  I usually take a picture of things after I am happy with their placement and  before I adhere them so that I can reference the picture as I build my project.
 I created a wall hanging that can be changed.  Each hook has four of the Graphic album tags.  I covered them with papers front and back so that multiple pictures can be placed and changed at will.
 I added some of the butterflies by Graphic 45, along with their brads for the centers.  I added bling by Eyelet Outlet.
 I fussy cut some of the roses and leaves, and layered them with the pictures.  I added a key by Graphic 45 as well, the "key to my heart" you know!
 Another butterfly, more bling and some more fussy cut flowers.  I also used Graphic 45's brads in the hooks that I bought.  I think they fit perfectly with the style of this project.
 My intent with this project is to add my favorite photos of me and my awesome hubby, DJ, and have room to add more through the years.
So, what do you think?  Is this a project idea that you could do in your home?

Have a wonderful Valentine's day!

I love this!!! What a clever idea to use hooks so you can change the photos around. I hope the folk at Graphic 45 think so too - definitely a winner in my eyes!

Thank you. They did like it, but I was not drawn to win...well not with them but my husband loves this project and we are looking for the perfect place to hang it in our home!
