I made this page for the Paper Girls Beach challenge. I had to dig deep into my photos for some beach photos. I finally found these photos of my daughter and I last year. I got a little chuckle that not one single photo showed her face. Oh well. It took a while for this page to come together. I had a very different paper as the background and I kept trying to make that paper work, but it just kept getting worse, so I abandoned it and started fresh with this pink polka-dot paper. When I was almost done with this page, I went to check what the date of these photos were and I totally had forgotten that they were taken on mother's day last year. I can't believe it was even warm enough to go to the beach that day! I totally thought these were taken more in the summer time.
Now that the Christmas decorations are down, it is time to make some Valentine's Day decorations to put up! I have seen some in the store, but it is much more fun to make your own. So here is how I made my sweet heart wreath. First you need a hoop (the one I used had about a 7 in diameter), 7 big wooden hearts, 8 small wooden hearts, paint, glitter, ribbon, and some hot glue. I took all my hearts and painted them a solid color and then went back over them and made some patterns or outlined them. I thought they were looking a little boring so I went back and put some glitter on random ones. Then I went around and hot glued the big ones and tried to make them as evenly spaced as possible. Then I hot glued the smaller ones on top of the bigger hearts, tied some ribbon, and then hung on my door!
