So Sweet

I forgot to post the girls' marching photos. They marched in a parade on Monday. It was so HOT! The first photo is Jessica, and the second photo is Emily.



Aren't they wonderful? I just love my girls! Now, I'll show you a page I finished a couple of days ago. I'm working on an 8x8 album for myself, and this is the 2nd page that I created for it! The first one was the "Sleeping Beauty" page that I created with Jessica asleep in her chair. This photo was taken in 1999, and I'm sure you'll agree that my girls are SO SWEET!


The frame that the photo is sitting on came from a Princess page kit that I received as blog candy from the wonderful Dawn! Isn't that frame fantastic? I added a couple of rhinestones to the frame. The title was cut with my QuicKutz. The flowers were created with a Stampin' Up punch that I have. It cuts three flowers at a time. I hardly ever use this punch, and I decided it was time to dust it off and use it! I love the simplicity of the page.

It's a rainy day today. I'm off to get a much-needed haircut today. I'm looking quite scruffy! I also just need to do some stuff around the house and figure out what we're having for dinner tonight. Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!

Ah ha! So that's what blue sky looks like! We have had solid cloud here for the past three weeks. It's not good.

The photos of your girls cheered me up no end. At least someone in the world is having some nice weather. They both look so professional too. You must be very proud.

I love the layout of when they were little too. They really are so sweet! Bless!
