ten things I love...

I love this time of year when Valentine's Day is on its way! As a kid, it was one of my favorite holidays, creating those little paper mailboxes at school and prepping Valentines for all of my friends. Even now, I adore making pages and cards that reflect my love and appreciation for those around me!

This is a layout that I made for Little Yellow Bicycle using their Hello, Fall! line. Inspired by the little pocket, which originally said, "10 things I love about Fall", I used one of the words in the package that came with the pocket and changed it to say "you" instead of "fall". The Hello, Fall! pocket and these fall papers actually worked out perfectly for a love themed page!
Remember this card I made with the little punched circles? I had an idea to use this leftover yellow paper with the circles punched out of it to hang little hearts from twine. I'm always inspired by what's on my desk!
These pictures were taken when Kati came home from school last Valentine's Day. Her and Taylor were opening my gifts to them and showing me all of their fun Valentines from friends. Love their excitement on these special days!

This is a great layout. I love it when you try to beautify something using the things in your desk such as the leftover paper with punches of circle. The stitching made the design look better too.
