Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!  I hope everyone has a great day with their significant other!  Today my son has a Valentine party at his preschool and last week we made these valentines for all of his classmates.  He is really into pirate stuff this year....his Birthday Party next week is going to be decorated as such and when I asked him what kind of valentines he wanted, his reply was "pirates" of course!  So, since I couldn't find any in the store, we made them!  Imagine that.  I proceeded to cut out about 50 of these little pirate faces from the Cricut cartridge "Paper Doll Dress Up".  I had to cut out enough for all the kids in his preschool class as well as his friends in Bible Class.  I cut them out, but he glued them all down.  I applied the glue and he stuck it all down.  He did awesome!  The only part that I did was the eye patch just because it was a such a slim piece.  Anyway...these are the finished product!  They were so cute.  We glued them onto Reese Cups and put different funny pirate phrases on the back.  Here are a couple of examples...1.  "I've got my EYE on you".  2.  "I'd walk the plank for you!"....etc...   They will surely be a big hit! 

Here he is glueing away!

These owl valentines are so cute as well!!!  I saw this on http://www.stampwithheather.typepad.com/ and copied it for my daughter's valentines for her Bible Class teachers.  They turned out soooooo cute.  We glued these to candy as well and then on the back circle wrote the sentiment, "Owl always love you".  Too cute!!!!  This owl could be made for anything...a scrapbook layout, a card...etc...  Believe it or not, I actually did a video of how to make these owls...once my husband helps me download it to YouTube, I will hopefully post it! 

Hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day! I know we will! Tonight we are spending time with the kids and decorating homemade fortune cookies! So fun! Friday night, we are leaving the kids with friends and celebrating our time alone! Remember, it is always fun and always homemade!

Hugs and Kisses!
