  14. Julie..... you figured out how to post the video!!! Yay!! And yes she is great!!!! My DH and I saw her on some TV show and I had tears in my eyes. (Some of the best books I ever read had some not so great covers, you are soooo right on!!)
    Okay, can we talk about that l/o...... seriously........ it's GREAT!!!!!! Love it!! I need to scrap some of my own baby/girl pics!! Good job as usual!!!!

  17. My step-daughter has been helpful in the don't judge a book by it's cover thing. She dresses in the new hip 'grunge' 'black' 'freak' attire. And when I see someone with way too much black eyeliner on or way to tight jeans I just politely smile...if they are looking my way. It's only clothes that these kids are wearing these days, and most are still wonderful children inside.

    Oh, BTW very cute LO.

  18. OMG I just looooooove your stm LO! Julie blossom - its gorgeous!

  19. You are right to never judge a book by it's cover. I love that paper you used on that precious layout. I am gonna have to get me some of that!

I do that ALOT. I write whatever is on my mind and sometime it goes public and sometimes it doesn'! You've got met thinking I need to take a look at this one again and maybe put it out there!
