I feel Lucky, oh so Lucky!

Hey all, I've finally had some time to play with these papers, now that the blog hop is over. They are so much fun! I love the colors and while they are very "boy", you can see they worked for Brook, too! In March we will be making these 6 fabulous layouts:

Layout 1

Layout 2

Layout 3 - Left

Layout 3 - Right
I have to tell you the story of "blessings." Brook and Aidan were having their dinner at the table when the talk turned back to saying the blessing (they ALWAYS fight over who's turn it is to say it next.) We were goofing around and I told them they needed to count their blessings. It went over their head a little bit and Brandon and I moved on in the conversation. As we were discussing the latest truck project, I hear Aidan shout at Brook, "No! I had 22. YOU had 23!" Such sweet little angels.. they had been "counting their blessings" the whole time in a contest as to who could get to 100 the fastest. Absolutely nothing to do with being thankful... but we have to start somewhere!! Love my table talk!

Happy Valentine's Day

This is my card to my sweetheart, my husband of eleven years. We have known each other for over 16 years. Years full of love, joy and happiness. You are my best friend and the love of my life. Always.

With love,

I was inspired by a photo Valentine my mother-in-law received Saturday. It's a 5x7 base in Grey Flannel. The bird is from Who Loves You and is stamped in Lagoon. I used Grown with Love for the tree and added a small heart from Welcome Baby. The white hearts are embossed and the inked hearts are in tulip and hollyhock. The dots are vineyard berry. Leaves were rock n rolled first in sweet leaf, then topiary. Love is from the felicity alphabet and the border is from the Passages workshop set, Lifetime.

Thanks for hopping with me and counting down the days until the Big V with fabulous new works from the heart. Please leave some love and post a comment, then follow the links party and browse everyone's sites! Cheers!
