Happy Valentine's Day!

Here is a peak at the little girls' Valentines for school. We really had fun making them together. The paper is made by Fancy Pants and had 12 images on the 12X12 sheet, all ready to cut out and use! The backs say To and From, but we mounted ours on a card, made from our new red dotted swiss cardstock (which has raised polka dots), instead. All available at "Scrapbooks, Etc" of course!

With new, stricter school food policies, we opted for fun Valentine pencils (from the dollar store!). Gone are the days of baking cupcakes to take in for your birthday or a party. All food brought to share must be STORE BOUGHT! Yuck! Also, they are now suggesting only "healthy" treats be brought in to share. So, for last years' birthdays we brought fruit cups and juice boxes, this year we made goodie bags with stickers and pencils in a decorated brown lunch bag. I know they will still get some of the red heart suckers, conversation hearts, etc., but not like when I was a kid! I hope their friends all like the pencils instead of candy. I'm sure they will, who doesn't like a brand new pencil?

Anyway, I hope everyone has a great Valentine's Day with their sweethearts, and to my mom and dad who were married on Feb 14, 1970, Happy 39th anniversary!
