Hey all!!  
So I have a super special LO to share with you today!
I made this LO for my son's future MIL.  Yup, he's 7 and he has it all planned out! LOL

The story behind this LO:  
He has had a crush on a girl, Lexy, since last year.  They were in the same Kindergarten class.  Sadly, they are in different classes this year, and Austin misses her, a lot!  He had asked if he could give her a Valentine. Seeing how they are in different classes, I was going to mail it to her.  No biggie.  
I was heading out to Target and Michael's one day and he asked if he could come and if we could go to Toys R Us too so that he could use a GC he had from his birthday. Sure, no problem!
We get to the toy store, and he heads for the GIRL aisles, and walked up and down EVERY SINGLE ONE. I asked him what he was doing "Looking for something special for Lexy."  Very matter-of-fact.
We shopped for quite a while there and at Target, where he also spent  some of his tooth fairy money.  Long story short (kinda! lol)  He picked out a pink bear, chocolates and some Debbie Cakes, every girls dream gift! lol
He also made her a card, b/c "handmade means from the heart".  Yup, he's a crafter's son. :)

 We made a special trip to her house on Valentine's Day to deliver his special gifts, and
of course, I took pics!!

I used the "Oh So Loved" file for the main elements, then added a retired freebie "Interlocking Hearts", the big heart is from "Wanted For Stealing Hearts"  and the tag is from "Tag 1"
I also used some Rumple Ribbon from Love Bug Creations!!

And here is the note he wrote to her to tuck behind a picture:

Best love story ever!

I absolutely LOVE how my bears turned out, and the whole LO really!  Of course, having such cute pics definitely helps!

Happy Scrappin'!
