Looking to February
Have you just ever had enough of a month? January has seemed to drag on FOREVER! It's been cold, gray, and seemingly endless! So I'm declaring February to begin...and what better way than to scrap a few Valentine-themed pages. For some reason, I have been into single page layouts recently - unlike me completely but I'll take creativity wherever I can find it. This is a photo that my 10 year old took of my husband and I at brunch on the Sunday after Christmas. We went to this lovely little restaurant in Middleburg, the French Hound, and had a delightful meal of escargot, pate' and of course - french fries - for the boys! Lots of photos were taken that day, but this is my favorite.
The paper is from Bo Bunny's newest Valentine line - Love Bandit. The flowers are Ashland's "Fun with Flowers". I bought four-pack of roses and tore one apart and took out the plastic that makes them stand up so they would lie flat on my layout. I bought this cute heart pick at Michael's in the floral section. I'm sure they weren't meant for scrapbooking. But it works!
I'd love to do more layouts this afternoon, but I have to teach a Basic Grey class this afternoon. So I'm off to the gym, off to class and then out to dinner with friends for the evening. But there's always tomorrow!
