After seeing all kinds of cute-sey Valentine's cards out there in bloggy land I was inspired to make special Valentine's Day cards for my boys grandparents.  My oldest is SO not into crafting/drawing/etc (hopefully that means he'll be good at math because he doesn't like art, right!?) ;)  and my youngest is too young so I decided to do it myself. 

I took several pics of the boys individually holding up a piece of blank white poster board. 

Then I added letters using software I have on my computer, you can probably do it at Photobucket.

I did this for 4 pictures alternating kiddos so I was able to spell out LOVE, I then lined up the photos and changed it to black and white and "softened" the edges with my software.

I then downloaded some free digital scrapbooking paper to add as a background.  And here's the finished project!

I think the grandparent's will love it, I do!  :)

I went to and made them into 5x7 greeting cards with personalized insides for about $1.50 each.

I should mention that I was inspired by another bloggers LOVE picture with their kiddos, I think she actually wrote the letters on the poster board and then put each individual picture in a 4 picture holder frame as a super cute decoration.  I have been searching like crazy for her to give her credit for being my inspiration but can't find her anywhere.  So, if any of you out there know who I'm talking about, let me know and I'll link her up to my post. 

Thanks for looking, please follow me and leave me a comment.... and don't forget to come back soon!
