Well, our Current order came at 4:00 on the 13th. WOOHOO! I had a "back-up plan", but I was glad we got to use the cards that the kids had picked out from the catalog. Here's Owen working real hard at writing his name, tongue-concentration and all! LOL!
I remembered at the last second that I had bought these Bo-Bunny punch out heart pouches at their last warehouse sale. So I got up early, put them together with some Dollar Store Thickers, and hung them on the chairs for the kids to find. Gotta LOVE when your scrapping supplies come to the rescue for holidays! :)
The girls looked so cute walking around the neighborhood delivering their valentines to their friends. Maryn is terrified of the curling iron, but she wanted to look like big sister today and have her hair crimped with the wave-iron. Kind of reminds me of my 80's perm. LOL!
My cute friend Charity brought our family a Valentine Dinner from Papa Murphy's. :) Heart-shaped pizza, cheese sticks, cookie dough with Valentine M&M's and red Fruit Punch. Our family LOVED it! I was especially grateful, because I wasn't sure what we were going to do for dinner that night! Charity, YOU'RE THE BEST!!!!
Later in the afternoon my cute sister and her family stopped by to say "hi". It was a such a fun surprise! They live 2 hours away and decided to come see everyone. We had a fun visit. Shortly after Gramma and Grampa Holbrook and my brother also came by, so it kind of turned into a family party. :) It was a lot of fun!
I hope all of you had the chance to spend time with your loved ones! Happy Heart Day!
Well, I can't do a post without SOMETHING scrappy! LOL! So, I'll leave you with a project I did a few years back for my kitchen. We were talking about things we had done for our homes using our scrappy supplies on the BackPorch Memories board. I took these pictures to post there and then never got around to it.
I found this wooden photo box at a local gift shop. Instead of putting it on my coffee table to hold photos I decided to make it into a recipe box and use each hanging folder as a "section" for recipes. I used Wild Asparagus paper that matched the colors in my kitchen. I used my Wishblade to cut the letters. It's a little beat-up looking now. It sits right next to the sink and the water has worn off the paint in some places. Nevertheless, I thought it might provide a little inspiration for someone out there! :)
Have a great night!
