We're so very close to the end with only two more chances for you to win one of the five Paper Heart collection kits up for grabs this week. Today's requirement is that you tell us about the people most important in your life, whether it's a spouse, grandmother or child. We'd love to hear what makes them so important to you and if you've arranged plans for them on Valentines. Afterall, the "love" holiday isn't just for the lucky couples out there, it's reach goes far beyond the bounds of just two people. Love is everywhere and all of us experience it in some form or another. Share it. The winner will be announced on Monday.

Paper Heart is accomodated by many hues, but you're not required to use all of them if you don't feel like it. Jaime's taken only the red and pink elements from the Paper Heart collection to create her layout, a more traditional color palette for this time of year. The layout is sweeter than ever.
"I remember making Valentine's Day holders in Kindergarten for the big day! We made them out of paper plates, doilies and glitter. I clearly remember the pink and red glitter we had used, too. So pretty! I have loved Valentine's Day ever since!"
This pocket album of "loving memories" from Charlene Cundy is exquisite beyond words. Page after page, there are suprises tucked away beneath layers of embellishments and papers. You can't help but want to look through it to see what's next!
"My favorite Valentine's memory was when my husband and I built our new house and my husband surprised me with the new furniture of our entryway. You see, we pretty much spent all our money on building the house, so I expected the entryway to be bare for a while. He bought me a set of queen anne chairs, a table, and a beautiful curio cabinet. He placed a red rose on one of the chairs, too! It was such a wonderful surprise and perfect Valentine's Day!"

A layout can still be soft and pretty with distressed edging. As an addition, it lends texture to the overall page.
"My favorite Valentine's Day childhood memory is of my father giving both my sister and I a teddy bear and chocolates every year while growing up. He'd also take it upon himself to remind us that he was the only man that could give us chocolates! =)"
