Mini Me :)

Hi everyone :)

I wanted to share a couple of layouts I made yesterday :) 

The first one is for the latest Elle's Studio sketch :) 



Along with some Elle's Studio goodies on here... I also used some Bella Blvd. feathers :)

 



While I was getting ready on Saturday -- Brookie had gotten dressed on her own :)  While I was doing my hair (at the time I was adding a braid to a clump of hair that was hanging in my face and driving me nuts! lol!) ... Brookie had come into my bathroom and I saw that we were wearing the same colors that day! Totally unplanned! LOL!!  So then she saw me doing the braid in my hair, and she wanted a matching one :)

 



Here is Elle's sketch :)




And I also wanted to share a layout I made just because :)  I used Bo Bunny's Little Miss collection on this one :) 



Whenever Brookie is playing ... she always starts off her sentences with -- "Pretend We're..."  and then fills in the blank...

"Pretend We're driving to the store"
"Pretend We're going to the beach"
"Pretend We're reading a story" 
"Pretend We're getting married" 
"Pretend We're cooking dinner" 
"Pretend We're going to school"
"Pretend We're doing art" 

and on and on and on ... it is so cute ... and I wanted to make sure I documented this quirk of hers :) 







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

  8. it's funny how that happens when you end up matching...that happens a lot around here. A lot of times with Lucas and Isabelle..and we don't do it on purpose either! Those layouts are great! I love that she loves to pretend. Those are some of the best times:)

  29. Very cute layouts. On the first, I love the feathers and the way you did spotlight on your photo. The other layout is just so creative. I wouldn't think of putting two near identical pictures side by side, but it WORKS! The whole page is so cute and so creative. I love how you sewed around the edges and over a few of your embellishments. Thanks so much for always comment on my blog. It means a lot to me.
