Happy Heart Day! (Finally)

We keep things pretty low key for Valentine's day because we are pretty good at telling each other that we love and appreciate them. Now with that said.....

I will share what fun I had putting things together! I snuck (is snuck even a real word?)this into Paul's Lunch Box this morning. Courtesy of the wonderful Aly over at PC Layers(she made 4 candybar wraps!!).

I know the link says Lori Gardener, she has a freebie on her blog to and is hosting Aly's freebie, what a sweetie she is for doing that too! Then I gave my Dad this one

And Justin, of course got one with a photo of the Love of his Life on it! Yep his cute little girl Kaylie Sue :) This cute wrapper is Courtesy of the fabulous Kayla also one of the PC Layer Gals! You need to check out her blog, I love this Girl!So when I got to work this morning I gave these to my Mil and Fil: I snuck this into Paul's desk at work. Well not this one exactly because I (like a dummy) forgot to take a photo of the one I did but this is where I got the download so it was close. But I am sure Celeste's looks much prettier than mine and her photo sure is a heck of a lot better than the ones I took!

This is what I did for Amber Annie :) She is not a big Chocolate fan so I had to come up with something different for her! I got the template free at Prima Hybrid, the idea from Jess Gordan of Scrapbook Ideas and the paper is by Franziska and from the fabulous free Valentine Kit called Love Actually. Which is a super collaboration of some great designers! Bits and pieces from my paper stash that I have no idea who or what except for the Love which is Creative Imaginations Karen Russell. I still hoard my supply of her stuff and I have a ton of it. She just totally Rocks my Socks, she is a BLAST to take a class from too! lol


Finally I gave this one to Paul at Lunch. Yep we have lunch together everyday in my office, Ok you can all say Awwwww now! lol This is a cadbury candy bar that I had to make my own layout for. Most everything is by Monica, the heart frame, the background paper but I recolored it black since that was the color I seemed to need for this, the cardboard is a piece of her paper that I use an Atomic Cupcake action on. I added the 2nd photo so you could maybe see the background paper a little better. The music is by Tracy Ann Digital Arts and the wordart is by Jessica Sprague. Atomic cupcake to the rescue again with a great paint action.

Whew that was a lot of explaining for just a few things! lol Thanks for sharing Valentine's Day with me :) Sorry that my photos were so stinky, I need to work on not having to rush and get them at the last minute!

What a lucky family you have! Mine barely got an acknowledgement of the holiday from me. I bought the kids some clearance stuffed animals at the supermarket - does that count?
