A girl really knows how to tug at heartstings...



Girly girl


When my niece came along after nephews #1, 2 and 3, I decided that I wasn't going to be overly attached to this kid. Being an overzealous aunt is hard work and I would love to get my weekends back! *LOL* But of course, a girl really knows how to tug at heartstrings, to draw you in with her charm....


Plus I can never resist a smart kid. Damn. I love that at 14 months.... she remembers what I taught her last week, can already participate in roll call [to ensure the kids are alive and kicking, I do a roll call and the nephews respond with "alive" to indicate all is well], says "yes" when I ask if she wants to eat or play, claps her hands and smiles when I sing "happy birthday", can roll the ball to me perfectly, can "high-five" me, can climb up and down a couch and entertain herself for at least an hour and falls asleep within 10 minutes of hearing my melodious voice singing "Sing a song of sixpence" [okay, okay...the melodious part is pushing it...*LOL*].

Just a fun layout using this month's Artful Delight kit...the doodling with mists was a total accident....I tried to remove some dried paint particles and got streaks that looked like it was done by a kid with crayons...so I just went along with it. Kind of like the "fun" vibe it adds to the layout. What do you think?

Entering this for the splatter challenge at Moxie Fab World.

Supplies: Artful Delight May 2012 kit, Maya mists, EK success punch, buttons, ribbon, brown pen, stick.

P/s: If you are playing along with The Three Cool Chicks, you have until 31st May to upload your creations for a chance at some prizes! :)

I have to tell you, you are now the queen of my layouts world. Your styles {I can see several that you entertain on your LOs} appeal to me in such strong ways. Of course I love the showcasing of photos on a layout, and then journaling is a must-have for me because without context and dates, I'm lost. Anyway, the touches you give to your LOs, the sweet things you add because they're "just right" are not going unnoticed! And the backgrounds you create??? I'm in awe.
