we’re suckers…for valentine’s!

lookiehere. {easy instructions too}

ok, really…

aren’t these awesome?!?

some days it really pays off to be a graphic-design-student/momma…
{but really…these are easy-peasy, anyone could make them!}

3 things i’m thinking post-project:

1) my heart is a little sad that miss twelve doesn’t want hers, she’s-so-over-giving-valentine’s. (junior high) … {i thought it would still be cute to give them to her besties…she disagrees.}
2) kj nearly refused to participate. would NOT sit in front of a pink background, so we used black. he also has these valentine’s to give out too, because he still isn’t fond of the homemade sucker-card.
3) i could NOT get sela to look at the camera, it was either left or right. the photos below give you a good idea of how we set-up the photo. you can buy these boards at most local craft stores starting at about $10 in a bazillion colors. they are great for instant-at-home back drops. they are also just sitting on the back of my cardboard chair, see:

do you celebrate valentine’s day? are you ready???
