Here is my Memory Nest layout for this week. My layout is a cute one of my little guy. I love the outfits with little ears. They are my weakness. I recently got a button maker for my daughter's birthday and I made that little panda button using it. It took a couple of attempts, but I'm starting to get the hang of it. I see lots and lots of buttons in my future. Buttons are one of my favorite embellishments for scrapbooking.
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!
