I just wanted to share this layout I made for my littlest guy. Just like on his brother's page, this layout also has three gnomes on it. I really love those little gnomes. They are so stinkin cute! I did some hand stitching on this layout for the title. I love the look of hand stitching and really want to add it to more of my layouts in the future. So far I have started the year strong and made two layouts so far! I home I can keep up the pace. I really enjoy scrapbooking so much.
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!
