Crafting for Valentines?

I'm not a big fan of Valentine's day. Never have been. I just think the whole thing is so... um... cheesy :) So I don't really have any craft plans for it. Last year, I did a shirt refashion and hair clips for my daughter and my niece. This year... nothing yet. 

So while waiting for Valentine ideas (that may never come), I decided to use some of the free digital scrapping kits I downloaded to make a Valentine-themed layout.

These are my grandparents. And if you haven't already noticed, I'm a big fan of my grandparents (already posted about them here, and here). I have always been lolo's and lola's girl (I call my grandfather, lolo, and my grandmother, lola). The photo above is one of the few photos we have of just the two of them together. I can't believe this was taken several years ago. When I think about when this photo was taken, it was just like, you know, a few days ago. 

I used elements from Tsukushi's Love Kit (download for free from the link). And I also used the brass flower from my kit which is still in the works. That flower is on my Anthro-Inspired Wintersparks necklace. All 3 brass flowers on that necklace will be extracted and included as elements on my kit. If I complete my kit on time, maybe that can be my great Valentine's day freebie. Watchatink?
