Happy Hip HEART Hop!

Hello THURSDAY!
time to get down with some
HIP.
HOP.
HEARTS!

It is ALL about VALENTINES DAY
here at the Lien Ranch...
LOTS
of cards in the making
for all those
school parties.

I had a lovely little person
helping me create...

We spent the afternoon crafting her
Valentines
and baking cupcakes to surprise
the big kids when they arrived home from school.
Here are the results of both activities...
 Sofia's Valentine Tags
she did all the counting, made sure each tag had a heart,
put zap dots foam squares on each heart, then stuck the hearts on.
and put staples in the stapler. ;)
They will be tied onto a treat for each friend.  
We used:
My all time FAVORITE HEART from Donna Downey's
Create Today kit, 'have a happy day' sentiment from
Could I Be Any Cuter kit, and 'do all things with love'
sentiment from Wishes & Kisses Stampin' Store kit
Bella Blvd paper, denim, jute, staples, crop-a-dile


my SWEET assistant, Sofia
After school Cupcakes...
We used: 1 white cake mix, 1/2 Tinkerbell and 1/2 Birthday
muffin cups, Chocolate & Vanilla frosting,
Valentine M&M's, white chocolate chips,
conversation hearts, Red & Pink sprinkles
and the MAIN ingredient.... LOVE.

hope you have a Happy Day... filled with HEARTS...

Love that you made things with your baby! Brings back memories of when my son was little (he's 27 now). I made lots of cakes for him and his cousins and every one was decorated with sprinkles and we put food coloring in the cake batter. I used cake mixes and canned frosting, but they all loved it because of that secret ingredient--LOVE!!!
