Cooking With Cricuts Love is in The Air Blog Hop

Welcome to Paper Crafting World and Cooking With Cricut "Love is in the Air" blog Hop. If you arrived from Nita's  at Nita's Notes you are on the right track. If your joining us mid-hop and would like to start at the beginning please click Here  to go to Paper Crafting Worlds Cooking with Cricut Blog and check out what Melin has made!
Today's hop is all about Love ( your favorite love song and valentine themed)
Although Elvis Presley has been gone for well over thirty years, it feels as if he never left. His music and image continue to be a vital part of the world’s popular culture. "Burning Love" is a song written by Dennis Linde and made famous by Elvis Presley in 1972.
The songs lyrics go like this:
Lord Almighty, I feel my temperature rising!
(and boy oh boy it sure was for these pictures!)
My layout today is for all Elvis fans and any one that likes to have a bit of fun!
This may not be my favorite Love song but it sure does match today's layout.
(don't we look happy?)
This picture was taken  just inside of the Excalibur Casino in Las Vegas in 2010. My daughter Christy and I decided to go away for a couple days rest and some well needed bonding time. We were on our way to a dinner show when these two hunks came along and talked us into getting our pictures taken with them. We had so much fun, I never laughed so hard, that my belly hurt, I must have turned a thousand shades of red, but it is a memory I will remember for a very long long time to come.
For this 12X12 layout I followed a old sketch from StuckOnU
The chocolates were cut from Cricuts  Everyday Pop up Cards at 2.5 inches. I used  Say it with a Smirk 12X12 glitter and foil effect designer pack, along with Bo-Bunnys card stock. I just love all the little sayings and thought it would go perfect with the picture, chocolates and cute looking guys. What more could a girl want?
