This past weekend, we celebrated the little people in our family. She's really not that little any more, but she has agreed to being my baby. As recent as a couple of months ago, whenever I called her "my baby," she would protest so loudly, "不, 我不是baby!" Somehow she has had a change of heart and now concedes to being my baby and would even raise her hand if I asked for my baby.
I took these photos to get the Shimmerz Coloringz'ed t-shirt she's wearing. I wasn't even trying to get her in the pictures but these end up being some of my favorite photos of her. This layout was done using the 5&Dime collection by October Afternoon, and indeed, Bruno Mars would be so proud, lol. Speaking of him, I believe he is scheduled to perform at the American Idol results show this week! I am looking forward to seeing that!
This is my second layout using lyrics and I am relieved that it turned out the way I was hoping that it would! I used lots of 3-d foam adhesives from Helmar to break up the monotony of the letter stickers. I think it worked.
Seriously, on that day, her hair indeed fell so perfectly without anyone trying. Normally, it's a struggle of power between us. I want to comb the tangled mess before dreadlocks form and she screams the entire time I'm combing. There's no Bruno Mars love during those moments, just a whole lot of cacophony of yelling, screaming, crying, and more yelling.
This second layout I did as the guest designer for Crate Paper last month. Emma's Shoppe is just beautiful beyond description, sigh... I tried to use a lot of various elements from the collection, the chipboards, the layered chipboard, the eclectic button, stickers, border stickers. My gosh, layering is indeed fun! And at the end of it all, it is all about her, my beautiful "baby."
I hope you all had a lovely and relaxing Easter weekend! Now happy happy Monday to you all!
