Happy Valentine's Day!!

Hope you are going to do something fun with the ones you love. We don't do anything fancy, but I do like making a great dinner. Way easier than going out to dinner. Restaurants are CRAZY on VDay! I bought filet mignon and snow crab legs for tonight. MMMMM! And the best part? We're doing chocolate fondue for dessert. (I found my fondue pot when I was reorganizing things last month.) Ryan is so excited for that part.

Speaking of my little guy, I looked at him at the dinner table last night and noticed something was askew with his smile. I touched his bottom tooth and, sure enough, it's loose. I almost cried!! I can't believe my baby is going to be losing his first tooth. I don't handle these milestones too well.

If you read my post from Wed., you know about my car. Well, the good news is I got my make up bag back!! Apparently, when they opened it and saw what it was, they ditched it. My neighbor found it and I got it back. Yay!!

So, here's a little something I made for Ryan to give the teacher's aides in his class. I LOVE these little nut cups. They are from HERE. This is one of my favorite Etsy sellers! I filled them with some M and Ms wrapped it tulle, added some ribbon and put a couple of flowers on them.



Next up is my card for this week's CPS sketch. I love all things Tattered Angels and loved using the Glimmer Mist on this Glimmer Chip. The papers are Sassafrass Lass and the cream paper is packaging from Prima flowers. I'm in love with them these days.




Finally, I want to spread the word about a wonderful spot for a retreat. Some of you may know Christine Penaflor. She is one of the sweetest, most talented people I 'know'. Well, she recently created a great place for scrappers to get together and crop. I'm helping to spread the word. I wish I were closer to head over for a weekend. Unfortunately, California is about as far away from me as you can be. BUT, hopefully some of you can take advantage of this place. Definitely check it out.

Have a great Valentine's Day! Thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous card as always Annabelle! So glad you got your makeup bag back. I know how awful it must be to have that stolen!

Hope you and your family had a nice v-day.
