You Make My Heart Smile

I have such a fun post today!! :) I have been wanting to do a Valentine photo shoot with my older girls and we finally got to it yesterday. I had a few ideas in mind for props for our shoot and it meant I had to hit my craft room first (twist my rubber arm.. ;)). 

My inspiration for my heart banner was the current challenge over at My Creative Time. You had to use 1 bow, 2 patterned paper, and 3 buttons. This worked perfectly with what I had in mind for my banner...



I used a cute little bow cut from the Silhouette store and added a button in the middle.


I used some digital paper to fill in my hearts in my Silhouette software...


And I also added some text that I printed out on the hearts. Then I threaded a looooong piece of red satin ribbon through the holes in the hearts (which I also added to the hearts in Silhouette Studio). 

And of course I can't NOT show you some of my fav pics from our photo shoot!! :) First was Bria, who was SO excited when I told her we were doing a photo shoot. She was so concerned about what she as going to wear! Talk about 4 going on 14!! 




And next was Brittyn's turn!! She insisted on wearing my heels too. Every time they fell off she kept saying,"Oh no! My photo shoot!!" but I finally figured out she was saying... "Oh no! My photo SHOES!!" So funny...




Don't you love my banner in the background? I'm super happy with how it turned out!! :)
