I just mailed out the boys' Valentines to family and friends, and they were so easy and inexpensive to do that I thought I would share them with you. First off, I want to give credit where credit is due. I got the idea for these here, and hers are cuter than mine, but I whipped these things out in about 10 mins. so I was pretty dog gone pleased with myself.

  • I started by taking 2 pictures that I liked of the boys' faces and loading them into Photobucket. From there I put a kiss sticker on the cheeks.

  • Next I saved the new pictures with the kisses to my computer and uploaded them to Walgreen's.

  • I googled the word "dinosaur" under the image tab, and saved a couple I liked to my computer. I made them black and white, and uploaded them to Walgreen's as well.

  • Then I went into the Walgreen's site and made a 4x6 collage of the boys pictures and the dinosaurs with the message, "Valentine, you are Dino-mite!"

Easy Peasy and cheap too! Now this would have been even cheaper if I had thought far enough in advance to do this on the Wal-mart site and order them for 9 cents each, but I wanted them quick so I was willing to pay the extra 20 cents per picture for 1 hour developing. There is a coupon for 25% off of collage prints right now, but you have to enter it in at check out time, and it is good until Valentine's Day.
