Footprint Heart Keepsake

My extremely creative friend Brit put together a Valentine's craft at our last playdate. She painted each of the babies' feet, and stamped them on scrapbook paper in the shape of a heart.

We started decorating but the kiddos started getting fussy for naptime so we took them home to finish. I did manage to cut the heart shape and glue to another piece of scrapbook paper.

I was originally going to turn it into a Valentine's card for J, but he saw it before I could finish it. So, I decided on a keepsake for baby's room (and, later, his baby book). I dug out all of my craft stuff and finished it off with stuff I already had, like adding the ribbon to the bottom, bronze brads in each corner, and a sticker quote.

I also marked the occasion on the top of the heart, with his name, first V Day and age. Of course, I'll be confused later in life when I look back at this, since he was 6 months when he did the heart, but he turned seven months last Saturday. Ohwell!

I then attached ribbon to the back...

...and was going to hang it in his room. But, to spare another nail hole in his wall, I hung it on his door instead.

Cute, huh? Happy Valentine's Day!
