"Vatime Caft"

aka "Valentine Craft".

Our month with our adorable grandchildren included a lot of "cafting". What better activity to keep a busy toddler's little hands engaged in something that she "can" do!

Do you ever have one of those "moments" when it's as if the stars just align? That's how I felt when I was looking through some of those 140 photos my darling husband brought home the other day and came across these photos. I had a flash of inspiration (doesn't happen often some days, but I welcome it when it does!)! On the layout I included the actual "Vatime" that she made for us. We'll remember it forever. :)

Since I'm also working through the Heart Month challenges at Sisterhood of Scrap, it's no wonder that I was able to use
Challenge 4-Cook Healthy RecipesOf course with recipes we need ingredients, so please use these ingredients
on your layout.

a. red
b. black
c. ribbon
d. stitching
e. buttons
f. flowers

THEN I realized that I could also combine Gail's January challenge from over at Scrapshotz.  And then as if THAT wasn't enough, I also used Sketch #5-12 from Sketches: Creatively Yours!
I used some old Jenni Bowlin papers and embellies that I received in a Scrapshotz kit a few years back. I did the journaling on the back of the "ADORE" card. It feels good to be using them finally! The photo doesn't do the paper justice. It's really not that "pink" but hey... there you have it.

Hope you enjoyed this little "heart attack" of mine. :)
