I love decorating for LOVE day, after Christmas the Valentine decorations go up. I made this little framed heart collage a few years back and I still LOVE it.  It was so simple, all you need is a heart shape punch from the craft store and some scraps of scrapbooking paper.  After you have all of the hearts punched simply glue them to a 'base' scrapbook paper. I used a frame I already had so it matched my living room decor. 

Try to make your LOVE day collage today.  Not in to the symmetry? Try mixing it up with different size punches or place them randomly around the page, or why not add heart shaped photos of your loved ones.

POTD (Picture of the Day)

 I have been working on a new project, a new way of documenting our family's story.  Project Life, or as some view it,  Project 365.  However you look at it, it is revolutionary.  I have seen scrapbookers blogging about this easy, simple way of scrapbooking and people are happy.  I jumped on the bandwagon and I too am HAPPY.  Thrilled actually.  Camryn has joined suit and I have been working with her and Project 365.  I was so excited to share this passion with her and let her creativity go wild.  She really is embarrassing much as a 4 year old can.   Ave's put a halt to Cam's project when she dropped her camera in the dog bowl.  I am hopping to get her a new camera soon.  She is such a great little photographer.

These are a few of Camryn's POTD's (picture of the day).  I don't think I will edit her photos at all because I want to look back and see images that were ALL Camryn.  These photos are raw and unedited.

Sweet Love

Although Valentine's Day is not about sweets, it IS about love and a little sweetness doesn't hurt either.  Here are two oh-so-simple ideas to share your love.  The first is a candy bar wrap. I simply placed sticker paper in my printer and printed these little cuties, cut and wrapped. The suckers were purchased at Walmart.  I created a little design in Adobe, printed multiple images on a sheet (again on sticker paper) and used a big square punch to create a sticker the perfect size for the front of the sucker.  So simple and the kids had fun helping.  We had a little assembly line going.

Valentines Day is just around the corner and it will be here before you know it.  Need a cute treat for your kids class?  You really can't go wrong with a sugar cookie.  What says love more than conversation hearts? I gave each kid one large cookie, two small cookies and a sprinkle of conversation hearts all tied up in a clear cellophane baggie with a tulle bow.  Super easy and the kids LOVE sugar cookies.  The only more fun would be allowing the kids to bake them themselves.
