American Crafts Valentin's HOP

14 February 2013
Welcome to the American Crafts blog hop filled with hearts and love.
If you have arrived from the blog of amazingly talented Sophie Crespy you are on track if not you can start the hop on the AC blog.

I really LOVE Valentine's Day. I am a bit of a softy and like every thing just a tiny bit romantic. Give me anything with a heart and I am happy! Here is the layout I created for the occasion. It isn't a Valentine's layout as such but it describes how I felt on this day. Elouan's eyes lit up when he was on the merry-go-round. My heart filled with love seeing him so happy. That is all I want my kids to be: HAPPY. 

 


No Valentine's would be complete without a little gift. Leave a comment here by Wednesday 20th February and I'll pick a winner who will get some AC goodies from me. Your next stop is Paige Evans! Prepare to be amazed!

Here is the full blog hop list. Have fun!

Supplies: 




Oh and just to finish off with a romantic song, well I find it romantic! My husband is the most wonderful person I know. He managed to see what I was really capable of and has been supportive and loving. And that is real love: being able to see beneath and see inside. HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY
