February DT reveal!

For the February reveal I received the Love Notes line from Making Memories. What a fabulous and versatile line of paper to work with! I had fun with it but it also challenged me as I have never purchased Valentines paper before and don't really take photos on Valentines Day.

For my first layout I decided to create it before the photos were taken. I knew what I wanted to do for the theme. I plan on baking cookies with the kids and will add in the photos once I get them developed.

This next layout I wanted to keep it simple. My daughter (who just turned 6) took this photo last summer when we were in Niagara Falls.
My heart truly does belong to my husband. I think from the first moment I met him I knew he was the one. For this layout I put one of the patterned papers from the line in behind the cardtock and then tore a bit of the cardstock and stapled it down. I used one of the bingo cards from Jenni Bowlin that came with my design team stuff.
When I first saw this sketch at 52 sketches I knew I had to use this paper for it. I think I have decided I am a scrapper that likes to make things simple. So until I learn more about this wonderful hobby I am going to stick with what I know. The journaling reads " You are our best valentines surprise ever! Born just before Valentines day on Feb 11th, 2004.
Be sure to check out the other Design team blogs. They all did a fabulous job and I am absolutely blown away by their talent!!! Cheryl, Valerie, Candace and Cori-lyn.


  1. Great job, Jen! I like the mix of patterns on the LOs about your hubby and daughter.

  2. Love your layouts! Thanks for sharing!
