Valentine Layouts - IN THE HOUSE LOL

So, I developed a lot of Valentine pictures at Walgreens. As soon as I saw the pics I knew I had to scrap them ASAP! I just love scrapping holiday layouts. Did I mention?? They forgot to charge me for my pics and I got 25 bucks worth of pics for FREE! I called my mom and I was feeling really guilty and she quickly told me to, "GET OVER IT NICOLE!"
What's a girl to do with 25.00 extra bucks in her pocket burning a hole in it?????? Go to the dream, derrrrrrrrrrrrr! But, much to my surprise, I have just about every line in there that I love. I am patiently waiting for the CHA Goodies to come in. I can not wait to spend big bucks on the newest goods which are soon to come in the mail I am told!

V-Day PJ's..... This I did to showcase my daughters adorable pj's as well as the picture on the bottom is so CLASSIC! I used K&Company Brenda Walton letters. Making Memories Die Cut Paper. Imaginisce pps (I BELIEVE)... Imaginisce Rub ons. Prima flowers and buttons from a yard sale.

The 1st bottom LO This is for the Valentine Poem Challenge. I made up an ACROSTIC VALENTINE Poem. This was a fun challenge. I haven't written a poem in about 20 years! I printed the poem on Imaginisce pp from the - SO HAPPY TOGETHER LINE. I used three different ribbons I got at Target in the dollar section. Got to love that section! I used Junkitz Salsa Celebration Rhinestones to circle my daughter Alicia's smile. I used hearts from K&CO on the top that I got at Target. I used Imaginice rub ons. The middle wavy paper is by Imaginisce ( I just love it) I cut a piece of Cloud 9 So In Love paper in Half because I like the pattern on both sides and attached one side to the top and one side to the bottom. The cloud 9 papers are part of the BE LOVED line. I used a piece of generic cardstock to attach all the papers too. I overlapped the middle Imaginisce paper over the cloud 9 paper. I journaled along the wave with my fav white SIGNO pen. I had taken some pictures of the cookies my daughter and I made on the plate and cut out the cookies and attached them with foam pop dots. Not sure if you can see they are raised in the scan or not! I added some bling to the middle of the flowers. I used Bead Party Bling peel & stick Rhinestones that I bought at Walmart! I love them because they already have the adhesive on them! I also added the white bling to a few of the dots on the pp to make it pop! The bottom layout is my dd making Valentine's for her Nana's & Papa's. I used the Basic Grey two scoops line (Cupid's arrow). I adore this paper so much! I used Martha Stewart Rhinestones beside the word - Smooches (just to highlight that cool word) & one in the middle of one of the flowers. I used my fav. STICKLES to make hearts along the scalloped trim. I added a piece of Felt ribbon and tore a piece of Imaginisce paper and added a few Imaginisce rub ons to the torn paper. I also used a big letter "A" for Alicia Ava and added a few white rub ons to both sides of the A. I highlighted the heart with the word love in it with a circle rhinestone made by Junkitz. I added a rub on crown to miss Alicia's head. I used Stickles to highlight the small circles on the pp. I made journaling blocks out of paper and journaled with my all time fav white Signo pen!

Hey! I recognize those papers!!!!!

You know what I like about you, Nicole? That you're not afraid to just go for it. And as Randy Jackson says on Idol "You worked it out, Dawg!"

Loved the cookies mounted on pop dots! Your daugther is going to LOVE looking back through these. Take it from me gals -- once they start to read they'll pour over your albums again and again. You'll be so glad you took the time to make these. "With Love" ;)

Gosh, I haven't even started on V-day stuff! To be honest, I really didn't take any pictures on Valentine's Day. It was sort of a bust. Eleana and I made a foamie project together, but I forgot to get pictures.

Your pages rock Nicole! Your daughter is such a darling little doll. She looks just like you. Great usage of all your love themed awesome!
