Love Song Blog Hop

Welcome to &'s Love Song Blog Hop! Love is in the air and the Design Team have come up with some great Valentine's Day projects inspired by our favorite Love Songs.
If you arrived here from visiting the lovely Heather @ The Hunny Pot you're in the right place. If you're joining us mid-hop and would like to start at the beginning click here to go to Paper Crafting World’s Cooking With Cricut blog and check out what Melin has made!
I was inspired by My Wedding Song, 
"At Last..." by the late Etta James. 
This is a Timeless classic to me and I can never get tired of hearing it. May she rest in peace. Such a wonderful, gifted voice. It takes me back to that one magical moment when I walked down the aisle to be with my Best Friend, Confidant and Partner for LIFE! We both have not look back since. We're 7yrs in and still smooching along...(lol).
Anyway, and this is what I created . . .
Cart = Sweethearts Cartridge
Paper = SU & Recollections
Tools = Musical Notes Embossing Folder, SU-Heart-to-Heart Punch, Inkadinkado Stamps, MCT Stitched Oval Die
Embellies = Stickles, MS Chalk Ink(Brights), Memento Ink(Black)
