Wow time sure does go by fast! Here is my layout for the Memory Nest. My son loves to sing and dance and my husband took these photos of him dancing away when we went to see the tulips. I just had to scrap them. The layout ended up being fairly simple, but sometimes simple is all you need. It turns out that it is really hard to scrap with a little baby around who likes to be awake and grab everything. I wanted to do some stitching on this layout, but it was just too hard to do it with a baby on my lap. I also tried to do some stamping, and that didn't go so well and I ended up having to cover it up. I definitely need to come up with some clever ways to scrapbook with a baby around. Maybe my littlest guy will become a scrapbooker?
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!
