You can always count on finding FREE Valentine’s printables and a trip to the Dollar Tree to make cute Valentine Favors!

I found  these cute  heart shape containers and glitter heart stickers at the Dollar Tree this week and I just knew that they would make cute favors for my son’s class! I used the  Valentine’s straw flags printable from Paige Simple Studio to add a little message.
I also found this cute pink favor boxes at the Dollar Tree.  I added a rhinestone to each box for an extra bling and tied the cute Valentine’s tag from Paige Simple Studio .
My last favor idea is perfect for a teacher, friend or neighbor! Just add their favorite candy, a tag and water bottle label from Paige Simple Studio  and you are DONE!! Easy peasy!! :)

Notre Dame Party

We had a little party of five to watch Notre Dame playing against Alabama for the National Championship, unfortunately they lost big time! :(
It was heart breaking but at least we had some yummy food to keep us happy. I made some cake pops, ND chocolate letters, popcorn, wings, chips/dip and veggies. Now we have to wait until next year! 

GO ND 2013!
