Valentine's day is so much fun, don't you think? I have always thought of it as a day to show love to my whole family, not just my sweetheart. We would get heart shaped pizza and I would set the table with valentine's placemats, decorate the house for Valentine's and get everyone a gift. This year will be a little different. My daughter is away in her first year of college and my two sons will be at ski club. My husband and I might be able to sneak away for a dinner for just the two of us! I will miss the family dinner though.
I have no more kids in elementary school so the days of exchanging Valentines with classmates is over. *sigh* My youngest has a girlfriend. It's 7th grade young love! I had fun making a few goodies for her. Here is the gift bag he will be giving to her today.
The Fancy Favor gift box is a Stampin' Up! Sizzix die. It's my go to box when I want a little cute gift packaging. You gotta have one of those!
Fancy Favor Gift box, item#115965, $39.95
I also made one of the cute owl pillow boxes I have been seeing everywhere!
Sam is filling both of these with chocolate and giving them to her today.
My 9th grader came home with a note from his Language arts teacher that the class wants to exchange Valentines. Imagine my glee! I started thinking up cute ideas. I came up with this Bingo card idea I made in Stampin' Up!'s My Digital Studio software:
He thought is was a dumb idea and not Valentine's related. I pleaded with him to at least let me make it for his teacher. I guarantee she will love it! He said no. *sigh*. Then I found this cute My Digital studio download for Valentines. It was only $2.95! I re-sized them and printed up 32 for his classmates.
Aren't these cute? Nick didn't think so. He had other ideas. He wants to just hand out a starburst candy to everyone and call it a day. Breaks my heart. *sigh* I'm not appreciated in my own home. Teenage boys, whaddya gonna do? Well, I'm going to give these to my co-workers today. I will have my youngest give him to his teammates at gymnastics. Someone will appreciate them.

I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's day with your loved ones!
Thanks for stopping by today.
