My Little Valentine

Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays. 
Err, scratch that. 
Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays to prepare for. 
The actual day itself usually kind of sucks for one reason or another. 
But the hearts and the candy and the flowery centerpieces I love. 
To the cheesy valentines and random acts of love/kindness that the holiday brings about I say "bring it on"!!

I know Elliott is not old enough to "get" it yet, and in fact she doesn't even have any classmates to hand valentine's out to just yet. But, that's okay. I'll use her as a fabulous excuse to whip up some cute little valentine's and I will pass them out to all of my her good friends!

This idea may be SO last year, but I couldn't help myself! I thought that Ellie would be a little more cooperative for these photos, but who was I kidding?! She's two!!
So, without further ado, here are Elliott's Valentines:

I can't wait to hand them out to all of OUR friends next week ;)

And, as promised, here are the rest of the pictures and some outtakes.....all of this for just one picture!!

And finally! We have a winner!! 
It's not the typical pose for this particular valentine, but it was as 
good as it was going to get for us:
I photoshopped out the sucker, and replaced it with a real one. I added the text in photoshop as well, and then printed them out at Costco. I'm so please with how they turned out! 

And now I am curious and in the Valentinesy, tell me, what's the most creative valentine you've seen?
