Well, I hope your weekend has been better than mine! I was hit hard Friday night with some sort of a virus and spent almost the entire day on Saturday in bed sleeping! I can't remember when I felt so wiped out before but even with the combination of some cold medicines and Zicam, I literally napped almost the entire day away. However, after a long nap again this morning I woke up feeling a bit better and decided that that was ENOUGH of that and that it was time to get moving and get better! I did NOT want to waste the entire weekend laying around, being sick... who's got time for that anyway - especially in December! My husband laughed at me, but we hit the mall to help celebrate Ash's birthday by going to Build-a-Bear and by the time we had a late lunch, I was feeling MUCH better. Mom's don't have TIME to be sick and let themselves be sick now, do we!? lol!
Anyway, this is a scrapbook page that I designed that will hold a photo of Miss Ashley celebrating her 10th birthday. As I have mentioned before, I'm working on some Christmas calendars for gifts this year. My plan is to add recent photos to the pages I've been making, photo copy them and bind them into a book for the grandmas and my husband. That way, they will all have special calendars and I won't have to kill myself making different books/calendars for everyone!
I used three different MFT Pure Innocence girls on this page: Birthday Princess; Make Mine a Double; and Something Special Just for You. They were so fun to color and paper piece with my favorite little My Mind's Eye Fine and Dandy Tickled Pink papers - I love those papers!! I colored the girls with Copics on my favorite Copic Xpress-it card stock... of which I am in desperate need of more! I'll be ordering some online soon since my local scrapbooking store didn't have any in stock when I checked there today... boo!
