Valentines for Cadence

For all who don't know, Cadence is my 4 year old Great-Niece. Her Grandmother is my younger sister and her father is my Nephew. My sister is 8 years younger than I am, I have 1 older brother and 2 younger brothers  by the time she came along I wanted a sister so bad.  I even told my Mom that if it was another boy I was going to run away from home. *smile don't know where I would have gone but I guess in my 8 year old brain anyplace was better than home with 4 brothers*  My Nephew is 6 months younger than my middle son Jon and they were joined at the hip growing up, so much so that one year I teased my sister that I was going to claim my Nephew on my taxes that year. I said all that to explain that she belongs to two very important people in my life and I see both of them in her. In fact the first time I changed her I looked at her and said "I used to change your Grandma's diapers and it sure didn't seem like 40 years ago".  Her father is in the Army deployed to Afghanistan at the time. To help her mom out Cadence spend a lot of time with my Mom and I, even more reason that I'm extremely close to her.  *as you can probably tell scrolling through my blog of all the scrapbook pages I do of her*

So back to the Valentine's....I saw this idea in magazine in my doctor's office then again on Pinterest.

Plain Cardstock is Paper Company Linen Textured Cardstock.
Pattern Paper is a mix of Paper from a DCWV Spring Stack and Valentine Paper from Hobby Lobby.
Sentiment is Computer Generated using Friday Freebie Font From Creating Keepsakes Limerick Font.

I used my We R Memory Keepers Big Bite to make the holes by her hands

The picture is a bit distorted because of the lolly pop :)
