I think one of my favorite moments of 2008 came in the twilight of the year. If you know me, you know my favorite thing in the world is to create with my favorite people (yes, I'm easily entertained). So, my little piece of heaven was having my beautiful daughter in my cozy Crop Crib, my new James Taylor CD playing and little Pillow Pup sleeping at our feet while we created Valentine boxes.
Caitlin and I both had some ideas to embellish the Target Dollar Spot mailboxes. Caitlin wanted to make the flag of the Target mail box shoot through a heart on the side of the box. She loves bold, bright colors, so I'm really glad she helped me break in the new Raspberry Tart paper. Here's her masterpiece with the flag up.
And . . . here's her shot-through-the-heart Valentine.
Caitlin used the Fine Cosmo Glitterwith the Two-Way glue to outline her heart and arrow. I love that she made this without the influence of bloggers or other scrapbookers - just her own creativity. You know me - I have to go check out what everyone else is doing with a new stamp set or paper before I'm brave enough to even open the package.
The new Spring/Summer catalog is just days away, now (January 18), so here's a peak at the rest of the Raspberry Tart paper you'll find in the new catalog. Yummers!
I wish I could have bottled up that precious time with Caitlin before she goes back to school with little Pillow. Yeah, you know it, I gotta show you little Pillow - seemingly growing inches every day. Here she is at 9 weeks in her favorite nap spot - just under the couch.
