also I used 'half' of the circle to create 
all my little half circles on here! :):):):):):):):) 
And the little tag is from 
Heather's ETSY shop!! 
LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE her ETSY! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) 
This BONNIE with Brookie is my in-laws neighbor...

she looked at Brookie and said,  
"Brookie, why are you getting so old?" 
and BROOKIE said.....
"I'm not old....MAMA IS!!" lol lol lol!!! Gotta LOVE MY BABY!!!

    BTW, love the song, "The Rainbow Connection"...brings back so many memories from years past. I worked for a voice instructor from the age of 12 to 18 as an accompanist for a voice instructor. Several of his students sang this song and it was one of my faves!

    Wishing you a wonderful Mother's Day, Sweet Lady! xoxo -L

  33. First of all....I sooo feel your pain. My middle darling, Kate, would have soooo said something like that if asked! In fact once I asked her how old she thought I was and her answer?? "How should I know...I wasn't around forever ago when you were born." LOL.

    Secondly....I am totally digging that second layout. The rainbow color combo is rocking that layout!!!

  34. Oh my goodness -- the rainbow flowers?! I. Am. In. Love. :) And I'm flipping over that envelope in the first layout, too! Love your work, Julie!
