~Valentine Rosettes and Simple & Sweet Fridays #48~

It was raining in San Diego today and I decided to get out all my Valentine scrapbook paper. I have been collecting all year long, wanting to do a project with them. 
I've thought I'd try and make Valentine Rosettes.
I just starting cutting out hearts 
and adding bits and pieces together.

They made a pretty Valentine collage.
 I also wanted to share with you my surprise 
that I got in the mail last night from Stan.
What could it be?
A package from Victorian Trading Company.
He surprised me with a pair of new pink rose boots for the garden.
I've been wanting them since I saw them in their catalogue.
He must have known it was going to rain today.
I felt like a little girl playing in the puddles.
It feels good to act like a kid.
