My 3 Valentines

Happy Valentine's Day!!
I made a wonderful project celebrating my 3 Valentine boys...
I used Close To My Heart's new My Creations chipboard banner and pictures that we took during our stay in the hospital after the birth of our second son. I chose the new Sweetheart paper from the Spring/Summer 2011 Idea Book. At first glance, this paper seems really girly and hard to adapt to photos with boys, but I started looking at it because in this first picture, as you can see, my shirt is pink and my son's is red.

The more I looked at the paper, the more I decided it would work. I could play up the red with photo mats of tulip cardstock and (what quickly became one of my favorite things about this paper) the backs of 3 of the patterns are tonal black! Fabulous!

Add a stamped title in black and black epoxy stickers (LOVE these!!!), and I have a sweet remembrance of our very sweet first times together as a family of 4.

(sorry about the glare on some of the pictures, I wasn't careful enough when I took them...)

So, Happy Valentine's Day to some of the sweetest boys around. I love-a belov-a YOU!!! xoxo

Here's the entire thing...already hanging in my dining room!
