A Heart for Great Grandma

Last Saturday, my family gathered to celebrate my Grandma's 89th birthday. ER gave her a cute paper mosiac heart we made, but Grandma's favorite gift were the hugs and kisses ER gave her. At one point ER was quite shy around Grandma but happily not anymore.
It was an easy craft to do, and inspired by one of ER's favorite Valentine books. She likes it so much that it stays out all year long. She is always talking about making Valentines, specifically hearts like the character in the book, so I designed this project to be successful for her. ER loves to glue and this was a great way to use up all my scrapbook paper scraps.
I traced a heart onto pink cardstock. Then ER squirted out clue inside and layed down the paper pieces. After it dried I cut it out and used glue dots to attach a picture of ER with Great Grandma. It's already being proudly displayed in Great Grandma's room.
