Something's fishy..........

Here's my latest creating for the Phindy's Place Challenge Blog: Valentines or for Someone You Love:

This project will also be entered in Tip Top Tuesday's Challenge: All Sentimental.

I made these cute little fishy Valentines for my son to bring to his "friends" at the babysitter's. Aren't they cute? I love Phindy's little fish digi "I Glub You". I think it makes a great "Boy Valentine". You don't went to be too girly for the poor kid!

For this image, I paper pieced the fish using gold foil paper and the seaweed using green glitter paper. For the "pebbles" at the bottom of the fish bowl, I used different colored glitter in tons of different glue drops. I also added a clear rhinestone to glam it up some more!

I think the girls at the sitter will love these! I attached it to a snack sized baggie of "Goldfish" crackers. They were just a natural pairing with the image AND they are not sweet and sugary which is always a plus with the little ones! (well, for their parents and the sitter at least!)


  1. Such a delightful idea for a kids valentine! I hope their Mom's or Dad's hang on to your lovely sparkly fish bowl when the kids tear into these!
