Making Our Own Valentine's Day Cards This Year

This year, mommy is going to get an extra special Valentines Day card, that can't be bought in any store ...

Kissing

Back in December, Joey and Jaiden decided to get dressed up in their colorful La La Loopsy duds and put on a mini fashion show for daddy. Of course I grabbed my camera and searched for spot in the house with some good light. They stood and sat on the stairs smiling and posing for a good 15-20 minutes. I got a lot of good pictures, but the consensus after I posted them on Facebook is that the one of above of two loving sisters having a kiss was by the far the best capture.

So when I started thinking about Valentine's day, it was almost required that I use that picture in some way or another. :-)

So I opened up my Pixingo studio, and searched for a card template. There was a whole section for Valentine's Day cards, and one above worked almost perfectly with the colors in the picture. I inserted the picture, and the front of the card is done!

LOL, now comes the really hard part ... I have to figure out what to write on the inside. :-D

I'm sure I can up with something.

Keep havin FuN!

    What two precious little Valentines Girls that will make their Mommy a very happy Valentines Day Mommy. This will be a precious memory to last for years to come.
    And not to mention a very happy proud Daddy that does wonders with his camera. But you DO have to have something precious to work with, "Joey and Jaiden".
    I know Mommy will have a very special place in your/her home to hang this Valentines Day memory that will last for many, many years to come.
    This is just one collection of many, many to add to that very special place to watch them grow up, and change into two beautiful women....then come the grandkids. Ooooops, didn't mean to make you teary-eyed.
    Take care, keep the camera busy and sending us the pictures.
    Your long time friend,

  3. Todd,
    No problem at all. I knew if it was fixable, you would get it done.
    Thanks for taking the time to do it for me. I really love reading your posts and looking at your precious children.
    Hopefully I can meet you and your family one of these days/years. Always wanted to meet you when we got in Scent-Sations, but it never seemed a time to be able to do it. Now I have lots more to meet, you, Ana and the children.
    Keep the good comments coming.
    Your friend,
    Cille
