You may have seen them on Pinterest. You know, those adorable little cards where the child is holding out their hand in a photo to hand you a lollipop. I really liked those.
The first one I saw was this one.
I did a little looking and found the earliest example (someone let me know if I am wrong) here.
The day I tried to get my girls out to have their picture taken the weather was a bit uncooperative. It was overcast and blah. I snapped some shots anyway and hoped for the best. After adding words in Photoshop I did a couple of test prints until they looked right. I ordered them through Walmart and had them shipped to the house.
I thought all of that would be the difficult part. It wasn't. You know nice inexpensive heart shaped suckers, well they are a bit harder to find around here than I thought. Even at Valentine's. They used to be everywhere, hanging in long strips from the sides of the store shelving. I guess everyone has the same idea because they were nowhere to be found. Since I was on a budget, I didn't want to pay 50 cents a sucker. Finally I found some at Target for less than $2 a bag for 24. Thank you Target!
Here is how they turned out.
My oldest at six years.
The little one at five years.
They were passed out to family earlier, and are being given out at school at the Valentine's parties today. Both girls were very excited to have a personal Valentine to give their friends.
Happy Valentine's Day!
