First, I need to start by stating this past weekend was Lady's Weekend in Michigan with my sister and mom. We spent Saturday shopping at the outlet mall, checking out a winery, eating and most importantly, drinking (perhaps a little too much for me). While shopping at the outlet, we came across a big sale at Bath & Body Works. I was able to pick up travel size bottles of their Valentine-appropriate scent, Paris Amour, for a steal!
I was going to use my regular printer (boring) to create a fun tag and then cut out the shape using my Silhouette, but I found that either my printer is out of ink or it just chooses to print anything I send. Either way, I had to improvise and use the Silhouette alone. This was a great learning experience because I have a complete understanding now of what fonts will and won't work. For example, big fat fonts are perfect but skinny, script-like fonts are a disaster! Seriously, PAY ATTENTION! The script font was a PAIN IN THE BUTT and took forever to ensure all of the letters were cut out. In the end, I was covered with small white specks of paper and I was exhausted even with the thought of using my Silhouette again.

I'll be back on Friday to share our Valentine's Dinner and my final decision for the girl's Valentine treats. I hope everyone has a fun and happy Valentine's Day!
