Here's my next bit of fun:
Many of you know, I love a good challenge! Shimelle Laine, one of my greatest scrapbooking influences of the past six months, has a whole lot of awesomeness going on at her website in honor of National Scrapbooking Day. I had to get a jumpstart and celebrate in UK time with Rainier this afternoon. Together, we made this adorable pink layout. I think it's really important to share with her a "holiday" that has come to mean so much to me! and since I'll be working all day tomorrow, I was glad to be able to step up to the challenge plate. I think we hit it out of the park!
My Rainie just loves washi tape, so she was delighted when her suggestion was approved and that she was the one laying down the orange stripes and flowered patterns. Then she chose the pink circles, sorbet glitter flowers, the little frame, and the tag. She's got such great dexterity for her age and even punched through the paper and bent down the brads for the teeny tiny heart brad!
