Happy Valentine's Day!!

Happy Valentines Day!!

I've been sick (still) but have still be scrapping so I have a couple of things to show you. One of the things I made was for a DT. I think I will be able to post it tomorrow.

The first thing I want to post is a layout I made for my Stash Challenge at Sketches4all. I actually scraplifted it from a blog and can't for the life of me remember which one. I was so excited when I saw the original that I immediately went to my scrap desk and started making it!

I will try to find the original again so I can credit the artist. I hate that I misplaced the name....

Anyway, what I loved about it was the absolute simplicity. Black paper, white pen, pictures....

My challenge at S4A is to use black on your layout and to also use a white pen (ink, chalk or paint will be okay too). I am excited to see what everyone comes up with.

I also made a "Pick Me" Valentines Card for my daughter to give to her teacher. She was happy with it.

You kind of get a sneak peak at the DT layout I made because I used the scraps to make this next card. I have been pretty good about doing this so far this year. I used the awesome sketch challenge #55 from Sketch and Stash Challenge Blog.

My husband is out of town so I won't be doing anything fancy to celebrate Valentine's Day. I do plan to make a special dinner for the kids tonight.

Do you have any Valentines plans?? What to share them??

Is anyone else ready to go on to the next holiday (with your scrapping??!) ha
I am! I might just skip to St. Patricks Day or move on to Easter!! Or maybe I could just start on spring.
Any ideas or suggestions??


  1. What a cool layout! I can see why you lifted it :) The white marker on the black rocks. Happy Valentine's Day girl!

  2. Great work!! Love the black and white layout! And the cards are adorable!! :)

    I don't really get into all these mini holidays myself, so I have been trying to focus on cards that I don't have a lot of like father's day, or sympathy or anniversary. All of which I find challenging, so I blog hop a lot to get ideas and inspiration!!

  3. Love the black & white LO!
    Beautiful cards!!
    Spring would be a good thing to scrap that way you can get a head start especially if you have any from last year that needs scrapped?
    We order take out to avoid the crowds, open our little valentine gifts, and ate our heart cakes dd decorated on Sunday.
    Dd also had a V-day party for school today.
    Hope you feel better soon!
