What I am....

Hi everyone!!

It has been WAY too long since I have been able to play along with my fellow DT members at Scrapping the Music... but this weeks song just screamed at me!! It's "What I Am" by Will.I.Am and he wrote it for Sesame Street! If you know me at all... you will know that I am a HUGE HUGE HUGE ELMO fan... so when I saw this weeks song... I was all over it!!! I wrote all the lyrics to the song and used that as my title and journaling!!

I used Nikki Sivils Exit Here collection on my layout!






And here is the video for this song... such a GREAT SONG!!!!!



I also wanted to share a layout I made using the BEAUTIFUL March Artful Delight kit!!


I fussy cut all the flowers out and used them to frame Brookie's photo (She was TWO in this photo!)





And the last thing I want to share today is a layout I made for the latest Lily Bee sketch challenge!






Here is Lily Bee's sketch!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

Good Morning Julie Sweetie...
Oh how beautiful is this share. I love the Elmo - Sesame Street words for Ms Brookie. She is so full of life and so fun, they fit her to "T". You really outdid yourself, or so I thought, until I scrolled down and saw that beautiful sunshine page. Oh be still my little heart. Is that not GORGEOUS? Does she ever say Hello Sunshine in that precious hat of hers. It is perfect Jules, just perfect. I love it.

Your talents always amaze me, and inspire me to create a little bit harder each time. Thank you dear one. Have a glorious Sunday. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
