Here is my layout about my little Aurelia. :) Isn't she silly?! She is always trying to grab the camera when I take pictures anymore so I have to work with what I can get. :P The theme for this blog hop is love and sparkly! I did lots of glitter and of course I love my little baby. I had lots of fun doing this layout. Hope you like it!

My absolute FAVORITE gift came today --- a little package of special scrapbooking supplies -- everyone at work got flowers and I was jumping around at my scrap box -- which I think fellow scrappers can only know what that feeling is like --- happy Valentine's day!

Siina said...

Hi! I can't see your layout for some reason. :/ But I'll be back to check it out.

Best gift ever... Probably the first flowers I got from my boyfriend. Such a classic thing, that I am happy to have received, 'cos who wouldn't wanna experience it. :) Every little girls' dream!

Best V-day gift was a bouquet of peonies from my now fiance. I know they are just flowers, but I casually mentioned to him once that they were my favorite and in season for such a short time. And he remembered and found them for me out of season! It was such an amazing gesture and one I'll never forget =)

Zarah said...

Amy, I can't see your LO...Is it my wonky internet, or did it fall out?

Best Valentine's gift ever was when I gave DH a tag album where the last tag asked him to marry me (or rather set a date - since we were engaged) and _he agreed_...! That was five years ago, today! :D

Tina said...

My birthday is really close to V day, so I usually only get a gift for one or the other. One year, I received a dozen roses twice, once for V day, once for my bday, 3 days later.

A couple of years ago my husband gave me a bouquet of sunflowers which had tickets to Orlando, FL in it. We went to Disney World! Best time EVER! While there I found I was feeling kinda sick and very tired- second gift? We found out we would have our first baby in September!! He's having a hard time topping that these days.

I haven't really given anyone a present (valentines isn't that big in Norway. But when we where very small we made cards to each other.

Vicki said...

My youngest child out of 5 kids was born on Valentines Day 4 years ago..totally unexpected, beautiful suprise!

Sandra said...

The best present I ever got was our daughter - she was born on the 13th February but she still felt like a gift from heaven the next day and every year thereafter!

NiyahNicole said...

The best Valentine's Day gift I was given was the birth of my daughter.

Last year I received a bunch of 50 red roses from my boyfriend. I think that was the most important present to me.

Lillian Child said...

Beautiful layout! And my favorite valentine memory would be the year my boyfriend (now husband of 30 years) brought me a dozen red roses to the office where I worked. He also brought the other 8secretaries in my office each a single yellow rose.

rhonda said...

Traveling Mama said...

Your LO is so sweet! Your little girl is adorable! I think the best Valentine's gift I ever received was from me Dad. My mom was usually in charge of buying gifts, but every Valentine's my Dad would buy us cheesy cards and a box of chocolates with the little flavor diagram. I loved that he took the time to go to the much dreaded store and pick something out just for me!

Mag said...

So cute ! Love your LO !!

For the gift, i think, it was a chocalate egg (Kinder)... it's a liitle be silly, but the meaning was very important for me !

pysselpetra said...

love the design with the vertical banner - very sweet indeed.
Best gift ever recieved was my eldest son who gave me a card full of hearts that he made on day care when he was just 1.5 years old. My heart got all warm.

mj said...

best gift ever ... um hmmm ... actually i'm still waiting! hee! i've gotten very sweet cards from my hubby so i will say that. we don't really "do" valentine's day!

danielle said...

this is my first time here, what a lovely place!

Tracie said...

This is fun!! I'd have to go with the first V-Day my hubby and I had together when we were dating. We'd only been dating for about 3 weeks. I invited him to dinner with some friends so no pressure right? He was nice enough to get me flowers but appoligized because he was not happy with the way they turned out. He thought they looked like something he'd give his mom if she was in the hosital or something. He told the flower gal that we hadn't been dating long and that he wanted something nice but not over the top. Anyway, I opened the card and it said "Happy Valentines Honey I love You So Much Love Jerry (not my hubby) I laughed so hard because I realized he picked up the wrong flowers. Ha Ha!!! We kept the card and talk about those flowers every year.

Loren said...

One year I got a blackberry! But you never forget your first stuffed bear from your first boyfriend :)

Blaire said...

One year my sister got me an egraved ring that read "A sister is a friend for life" That was definitely the best v-day gift I ever recieved!
