♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Layla and I made Valentine cards for her teachers at preschool.

Here she is ready to go!

Scissors~check! Glue~check! Cookie cutters~check! Snack~check!

She even decorated the bag she is using to take the cards to school.

She saw me reading this post by

Kelli @


and wanted to do it too.

Here are the cards we made:

BOTH of her teachers are named Mrs. Kirsten,
but their names are pronounced different.

I feel like such a slacker mommy photographer.

The pictures of these cards are terrible.
You can't even tell how cute the pink card stock is under the candy canes.

Layla picked out the cards she wanted to give her classmates all. by. herself.

Layla = Little miss independent!!

She is really into pencils right now and asked if she could give them each a pencil.

And of course shaped suckers.

They are the best...I have already eaten 2 of them.

Your candy cane cards turned out so cute! Yay! And my boys wanted to do pencils with their Valentine's this year too! We just taped them to the back of some cute heart shaped notepads that I got at Target!

Too cute! Sweet Layla is an artist-in-the-making. She is absolutely precious! A smile that melts the heart! Thank you for sharing such a lovely post. Makes me miss my little girl (who is now 36 years old with one of her own), so very much. Our beautiful babies just don't stay babies long enough. Blessings to you all, Terri

I used to love those heart shaped suckers. Look at Miss Layla picking our her own cards and signing the teachers' cards. Such a big girl! You are a great mom for sitting down and helping her with those crafts.
