A Little Love so soon :D

Tonight I had a little fun playing with my new Pretty Little Studio products I just got from the Love Notes collection.  I had purchased these 6"x4" kraft envelopes from the jewelry supply store when I was picking a few things up for the store and they are all discolored and wonderfully old looking and the guy sold me a box of 500 for $5.  Not sure what I'm gonna do with 500, but with 5 I made these :D  I'm going to put little candy goodies in them as soon as I can purchased pretty Valentine's candy!  If you haven't checked out Pretty Little Studio you should, the product is awesome especially if you are like me and scrap 8x8.

My Baby Girl.

Just the other morning I stopped and took a moment in the crazy morning rush to get out of the house as I saw my baby girl brushing her hair and putting her matching earrings in for the day, and I thought to myself, where did my little baby girl go?  So I figured I'd scrap some baby pictures!  The hanger is awesome I picked it up at the Paper Niche today for like $3 and I looove it.  I'm gonna have to get a few more.  So this is what I have to share for the night, I hope you all have a great Friday & wonderful weekend.
