Just a simple theme, to make it easy for everyone Smile  You can include flowers, chocolates, anything that fits the theme

Deadline is the last day of February

That's so cute! I'm sure my all-girl crew would agree with yours. All you need is chocolate. Very Happy

Just a reminder to submit your photos! It is incredibly windy today where I live so I guess it will be an indoor photo. Smile

Windy and overcast here. Sad I guess that's what I get for procrastinating.

Did anyone else go to a grade school where every student made their own valentine box and bought or made a valentine for every other kid in the class? Mine did, and Erica is channeling that experience.

I decided to take some photos outside (because the light is so much better) but holy moly was it freezing!

Aw, that's really cute! I remember the class valentines. Everybody had a paper bag taped to their desk and we went around and "delivered" them.
Ugh, I dunno if I'm going to get one done or not. Returned from tropical paradise to winter on Saturday and feeling kinda wrecked. Sad

I remember decorating a box, I think it was an old Kleenex box for one year.  And another year, it was the paper bag taped to the desk.

I intended to post yesterday, but my cable was knocked out by the high winds.  I'm sure there were some people upset that they missed the Oscars because of it, but I'm fine with learning who won when it's all over.

And a mini picfic bonus:

Len: I got you some chocolates.
Lana: For me?

Lana: I've never gotten chocolates from a boy before.
Len: Aw, it was nothing.

Happy Dalentine's Day (or month)!

Very sweet photos, CornflowerBlue!

One year I remember making really elaborate valentines using wallpaper, doilies, and foiled paper for all my girl scout friends.

TrueFan, I like your photo--the soft lighting gives it a nostalgic feel.  I personally don't think I've ever made a Valentine's card mailbox.  I missed out.  All we did was give Valentines to everyone in the class so no one feels left out.  
-------------------------
Lana's a lucky girl to be on the receiving end of Valentine's Day chocolates.  I enjoyed the little pic-fic photos.  
--------------------------

Here's a quick photo of my own.  Almost missed the deadline!  I spent a long time trying to find all my little doll-sized props--flowers, heart-shaped candy box, mini pink cupcakes, all my Rement...no luck.  I must have misplaced it...

This is Seri, a little surprised (but pleased) that she got a Valentine from a secret admirer.

Thanks. Given how quickly I was trying to take a photo on a grey winter day, I'm pleased with how it turned out!

I know the feeling of looking for but not finding specific props I know I have! Still your photo turned out very cute. I love how her hair cut looks. The background is hilarious.
Love

And....here is the cute outfit that jahzteen sent me.  I only got around to taking photos now, even though Misa the Drta has been wearing it for months.  (This is pretty bad, but I forgot the name I had given this Dal.  I had to look it up in my dolly details spreadsheet.  Hoo boy.)

Thanks again, jahzteen!  The outfit is so cute!
