Here is my second layout for the year! It's a bit of a challenge to try and make three different layouts using the same photos. For my daughter's layout, I pulled the blue from her shirt for inspiration for the paper I used. Blue typically isn't a color that screams fall, but the this hue really reminded me of the cool refreshing air fall brings. Her layout also has three gnomes on it! I kind of feel like I need to put gnomes on all my layouts now. lol! Back when she was little, I put a tiny ladybug on all her pages hidden somewhere. It's kind of a fun challenge.
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!
