Happy Monday!! Well, not really. Most people hate Mondays. I look at it 2 ways. I'm home EVERYDAY so everyday is a Monday :( ..... (especially when the girlie's are naughty!) OR..... everyday is a Friday :) ( when the girls are sweet) That's more like it!
This Layout is super special. This picture was taken of my little Emma just staring at the T.V. I love how children sometimes can Do you remember what that was like? Just being? No thoughts or cares?............. Me either! Ah to be a kid again!
I incorporated my favorite colors (for now) and ABUSED my punches. I'm going for Shabby Chic meets Vintage quilt. Whatcha think? I mentioned I don't do white space much but lately, I'm LOVING it! I find that the photo is the primary focus. No journaling need. I will remember this look forever } )
There are a few challenges this layout qualifies for......

All Sorts- Photo Inspiration (Strawberry and Cream Chocolate cake...mmmmm)

This is the best scrapbook layout I have seen in a long time... wow! What a great use of punches. Is that just embossed paper for the flower?
