Valentines notes and giveaway!

Valentines is this weekend and though I love my husband I am going to be spending the weekend at a crop with my friends. Scrapbooking is my first love afterall :) Just kidding. No really.

I am so excited to be scrapping with this group of amazing people. They are all so creative its inspiring. (and a little intimidating) Well since it is valentines and everything we decided to give each other valentines. I'm excited to show you first what I've created.




I sweetened the treat with a little chocolate.
The finished product... I hope they like them.


I also made a special gift for the the kids teachers. A cupcake wrapped up with a postcard.



Well for all of those reading to the end of the post I have a small giveaway. A couple of Just Chillin packs from Making Memories. I've asked my son Shayne to help me. Thank you Shayne
