This was a fun week and I was so inspired your Valentine Crafts and Decor. From beautiful mantles, to parties and wreaths!

  Be sure to go through the links and find some inspiration for yourself.

Our guest judge, Kara from Happy Go Lucky, had the most difficult job picking the winners. I think she did a fantastic job though!

She had the hard task of selecting the winners, so let’s see how she did. Here is what she said about her judging experience.

I had so much fun being a part of this week’s party!  You all shared some AMAZING Valentine’s Day projects.  Thank you for inspiring us with all your creative ideas.  I’ve pinned them so I won’t forget them next year!!
