Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy belated Valentine's Day! Hope that you had a great one . . . mine was pretty quiet. Just a calm day at home with Gil and the kids. Gil sent me these gorgeous flowers from his uncle's shop (Dallas Floral Design on Morgan Street in Broussard). My entire downstairs smells so good! The kids each got little treats from mom & dad, so they were happy too.

Down to business . . . check out my latest layout! I couldn't wait to use the new Cosmo Cricket "Girl Friday" line! I love the colors, the coordinating ribbon, the sweet florals . . . anyway, this page came together really quickly. Of course, I was working from a sketch! I added sequins over the centers of the flowers because I wanted something different from my usual brads or bling. I didn't have any orange or yellow sequins on hand, so I inked them with a cat's eye ink pad. It worked pretty well! Anyway, I like the delicate look of the flowers. Sweet looking, just like my girl!

I made two more "Just Play" layouts, one for Anna and one for Matt. Changed them up a bit from the original, so I thought I'd post both and see which one y'all prefer. I'm undecided! But I do like the patterned paper on Matt's page - I used crystal lacquer on the dandelion and I love it! :)

Wanted to give a quick "Go 'head!" to Heather at Treasured Memories. This girl gives customer service a whole new meaning!! I love to visit with her whenever I stop in. I know that I can count on a smile and some friendly conversation. So thank you, m'am! You are a gem! :)

Have a happy week!!

Beautiful flowers! I love Dallas's style & vases! I always get flowers from his shop and I always used to order from him when I worked at Superior! Would you happen to know Lesile Leblanc?
