SWEETS FOR THE SWEET!

What are YOUR plans for celebrating Valentine's Day? I've been invited out to a nice dinner, sort of a date for us, and I'm looking forward to it! We get so little time to ourselves that we truly have to make a concerted effort to cut that time out just for us.

To keep to my promise of 14 heart frames for you by Feb. 14th, I've packed three into today's FREEBIE! This will complete your "Hearts Afire, Series 6" collection from me for now. I love how these turned out, so I may add to the collection from time to time with new colorations. But never fear, I have lots more to give you, so do drop in on a regular basis!!

I want to show you the Valentine I scrapped for my sweetie. The poem was the beginning of my inspiration for this, the background paper seemed just right, then the stitched heart seemed to complete it nicely. My version, of course, is personalized; but I took that off and put a more generic text on this one to show it to you.....


Yeah, I'm a doodley-doo kinda gal, so I liked this a lot. The word art is from Aubrey's Mom, the stitched heart is from stitching_sampler_RowenaF at Divine Digital Boutique (one of my favorites), and the paper is from the kit, "Sunset" by Baby Cakes Scraps. I hope you can zoom in to read the verse, it's perfect for older couples who have been through a lot.

Ya still with me? I have two of my own layouts to share featuring none other than my youngest grandbaby, Miracle Mason, who lives with me and runs me ragged on a daily basis. Take a look.....


The first shows him atop a John Deere tractor with no fear and, in fact, acting like he knows what to do up there with all those switches, knobs and gears! The second is a closeup of him on the walk we went on that day, and it better shows his favorite attire which includes what he calls his "cool-rays" (sunglasses) and yes, a string of beads!! We don't know why, but he has always loved beads and has an eagle eye for finding them in the floor and even in the dirt at a local park where other kids must lose them when they break. He can find them singularly even when they are the size of a bird seed, picks them up, and brings them home to his Mimi. We wonder if this is because he sees me designing jewelry, but he was so little when this began that it's hard to think he made the connection. At any rate, his mom his hoping he will grow out of wearing beads in public before he goes to school. LOL! But if you will, please note what is on his shirt under the NYC letters and then note the element on the bottom right included in this kit. Is that uncanny or what!!??!! Back to the layouts.....Both were made using the free sampler kit, Oh Boy_Mini, by JulieItIs. I found her by way of Digi Scrap Depot. I absolutely love the metallic grid, and the cardboard tractor is the bomb! I'm going to have to go get the full size kit since it's too cute for boys! I love the papers that were included in the sampler, and that grid lends itself to so many ways to play with it. Oh gosh, too much fun!! The block font is "Wild Child", and the font on the note is "scrapbook", both from 2Peas also.

Alrighty then, thanks for reading through, I've kept you long enough. Have a GREAT and ROMANTIC Valentines day with your loved one or ones, and I'll be back soon!

Tootles!
