I just can't resist any longer. There's no waiting until Valentine's Day, I just have to share!
LOVE IT!! Doesn't this just make you smile?
Yesterday I spent a few minutes with each kid to design their valentine cards for this year. We browsed a bit through iphoto and each of them chose their photo, we collaborated on the text, and then I spent a few minutes designing each one.
Like I said, Payton selected the photo, we chose the text, and when he left the room I had some fun. Wah-ha-ha. When I showed him the final result he laughed and laughed. But he wasn't completely sold on the idea of passing these out to his classmates. I begged and pleaded and bribed and eventually he gave in. Such a perfect photo and sentiment . . . I would have been heartbroken if he passed up this opportunity.
Then there was Anna. She was dead set on using this photo from the first day of school.
It's so perfectly pink, glittery, and girly. The Glitter Heart is a free download from Design Editor. And the Glitter Letters also come from her shop. So cute. With a little tutorial I even learned how to add a drop shadow to the digital elements! I'm definitely feeling smarter today.
And finally, there is Conner. Once again I must stress the fact that the kids chose their own photos.
And he also chose the text. It is sooo Conner. Which, I guess, is perfect.
