A Giant Paint Chip Valentine

Cliff always tells me that he feels so lucky that I never ask for roses, or diamonds or chocolate on Valentines day. This year that appreciation wore off pretty quickly when I told him I’d rather have something a bit more “extreme” like an 8 ft giant paint chip valentine! You think he would have learned by now, huh? Check out our Giant Paint Chip Valentine along with time lapse video and cheesy family photos!

Luckily our friends at Behr helped my pink and red paint chip fantasies come to fruition by providing us just the right colors: Pink Eraser, Cheery, Firecracker and Poinsettia. Behr’s Firecracker red is so similar to the Pantone color of the year “Tangerine Tango” that it made me want to cover my studio walls in it!

If you are newer to this blog and want to see our very first giant paint chip (with a Lite Brite twist) click here. The rest of you enjoy this sweet little time lapse video!

By the looks of it I’m pretty sure we accomplished the cheesy photo shoot that we were so inspired to do……

Ok, Cliff in that pink shirt with the Glee Club smile/pose makes me pee a little! And now for the ultimate Valentines Day cheese!

 And so the paint chip obsession continues…. What do you think of a giant paint chip Easter bunny?
