Wow it's monday. We had such a busy week! There was pony riding with girl scouts, ballet recital, hand chime playing, and a gymnastics show. I'm exhausted from it all. Anyways, here it my latest Memory Nest layout. The photos are from when my daughter recieved her ballet costume and tried it on. She was a little blue bird. She loves the outfit because it has feathers instead of sparkles. Feathers are soft compaired to sequence that gets itchy and scratchy! It has been a while since I edited photos, but I really wanted to make the blue of her tutu stand out. The alpha stickers I used on my layout are not my favorite, but it turns out I don't have to many blue options. The l and the u in blue look the weirdest.
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!
