Happy Valentine's Day!

I just love Valentine's Day and can remember doing up great little boxes with my older kids and filling them with candy.  Unfortunately in our school district here they don't allow it! :( 

My 2nd grade and I did sneak in a little Valentine's sucker in the cards she made (all by herself!).  She's so independent!  I thought I would share some of them with you.  I am so proud of her and her craftiness.  It truly bounds us together to have this wonderful hobby in common. 

The circles were cut using Cricut cartridges!
She worked on them on different days and used different cartridges.

Work on those Valentine's!!!

My little crafting buddy!!
This was taken February 4th at the mother/daughter crafting day!
We had soooo much fun!! 
It's one of the best days of the year!!

I didn't take pictures of my kindergartener's Valentines but you should have seen my two boys (only one in K needing Valentines) working the ATGs to get them done!!  We didn't get a name list or anything but were told we COULD make some generic 'to my friend' Valentines that he could pass out.  We weren't going to make any but last night he changed his mind.  We (my husband and I) just cut out some heart layers in red and white.  My boys (5 and 6) worked together to stamp 'Happy Valentine's Day' and 'from:" and adhere them together.  Very simple but he was satisfied!   It was such a wonderful evening, working together as a family to get Valentines done for one child!  I little piece of Heaven on earth!

Thanks for checking in today!
