You Rock, Valentine!

So I told my boys "anyone can get Transformer or Iron Man Valentines from the store.... let's make different Valentines this year!"  They agreed and immediately ditched me for some video game.  I was left to find some crafty, creative idea to impress a bunch of 1st and 3rd graders. 

I stumbled upon a brilliant idea over at the eighteen25 blog and I knew right away it was perfect for us!


Pretty simple.... I added the text to the photo in Photoshop Elements and then printed a sheet of them; they are 2 x 3.  Punched a couple of holes right around the boy's hand and then slipped in a Dum Dum.  Hopefully the kids in their classes will like them!

These are darling! I better navigate away quickly though...my 5 year old is looking over my shoulder and I don't want her to get any ideas! I am NOT good with photo editing!!
