2/13 challenge: A Valentine to myself


2/13 challenge:  A Valentine to myself

I know I'm a week late with this, but a Valentine to myself was not my hightest priority. Perhaps that is why I felt that I really needed to do it--to reassure myself that I'm exactly who I'm supposed to be, doing exactly what I am supposed to be doing. I'm so glad that I did.

    Oh, Jaymee - me too! SO glad that you did. What precious photos of your little self and I love all the different expressions and emotions that are shown in them. I also really like your lovely poem - how perfect, the quilt of your life! I like how you stitched pieces of background around the pics in a quilt pattern with colors of the sun on top and green growth budding underneath yourself. Your embellishment cluster is gorgeous and the piece of lace tucked across and tying it all together is absolutely beautiful! Again, I am so impressed with the feelings expressed in your layouts and this one is exceptional. I was so touched with this special page. :)
    So beautiful. I love the pictures. They are so sweet and I love what you wrote. Both on and off your layout. Good for you for doing this.
    Great take on the challenge. I love the photos.
    I love your photos -- and what you did with them. This whole layout is just gorgeous. I'm amazed and impressed by how beautifully you used all the different pieces. It's a picture of the poem you quoted. Beautiful in every way.
    Wow, Jaymee! This is so lovely! Love the quilted backing and the arrangement of the photos. Great photos! Really like the cluster and the way it grounds the page. The journaling is beautifully done.
    Absolutely stunning layout, Jaymee and what darling, expressive, sweet and lovely photos of the little Jaymee! Gosh, they just exude sweetness and love on your Valentine to yourself! I so love this beautiful page! You have created something very special for yourself and thank you so much for sharing it with us! It's lovely!
    Wonderful page! I love the journaling - so true! Following through the quilted pattern with your papers is marvelous! The photos are lovely and whimsical. Well designed, lovely page!
    This is wonderful, Jaymee! We are indeed perfectly imperfect. I love the delicate feel you've captured - what an incredibly precious little girl. Your cluster is great, and the ladybug is the perfect finishing touch! Thanks so much for doing this both for yourself and for the Monday challenge.
    Just love the poem and this LO is just gorgeous. The soft yellows and greens in the lovely quilt BG work so well with the B$W photos :)
    I love the clustering of the flowers, and of course the inclusion of the ladybug! Perfectly arranged, and you caught the essence of this project beautifully.
