drawing challenge/LOVE

I LOVE my family.
I LOVE mint chocolate chip ice cream.
I LOVE fuchsias.
I LOVE maps.
I LOVE redwood trees.
I LOVE my friends.
I LOVE orange.
I LOVE simplicity.
I LOVE cloudy days.
I LOVE airports.
I LOVE to make things for my kids.

Greta doesn't believe in the Tooth Fairy but she wants a Tooth Fairy pillow anyway.  But, of course!  It's not quite finished, I need to attach a tiny felt pocket for her tooth.

Greta didn't want to participate this week so I asked her dear friend Poppy ( 5 years old) to join us.
Poppy is LOVE.  If you knew her you would agree.  Just about every time we see her she has a LOVE note for each of us.  There is usually a red heart and the words LOVE and POPPY.  The two just go hand in hand.   This girl feels love so big and has an empathetic and caring heart beyond her years.

Here is Poppy's drawing along with her description. 

greta is in the black and grey stripes.  i (in the purple dress) am holding hands with greta.  this is shepard as a newborn baby with mama holding him.  this is sally (from peanuts cartoons in a yellow dress), she is in love with linus. she is grabbing her hands together. she always reminds me of love--everybody else, too!  The first word I learned to write (besides, Poppy) was "Love". thank you rachel for letting me do this with you.  Love, Poppy

Lovely pillow! I've never heard of tooth fairy pillows before. Maybe my five-year-old will need one soon. Will the tooth become a coin in the pocket, or what will happen?

I'm sorry I'm late with my contribution. It's already Monday and I found love everywhere today :)
