The Girls are Back in Town and Shoes for All Times....

I got a kit from Citrus Tree Studio this month because I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Bella Blvd Man of the House line.  I wanted to show that you could use it to make girly things, too!

This line fit perfect with the color combo this week at The Color Room: Sand, sky blue, a mustard-y yellow, and a red-orange.

I also used a sketch by Liz at the Scrappiest.

And here is my LO:

I had intended to breast feed for at least 6 weeks to see how it went.  I ended up doing it for a whole year!  I realyl surpirsed myself by doing this, but it was so much easier since I was staying home with her.  But by the time 10-11-12 months rolled around, I was SOOOOO ready to be done!  I was pumping 1-2 times a day and nursing her in the am.  How I longed to sleep without a nursing bra!

It felt SOOOOO good to be done and have the girls be free again!  Although, they aren't as "perky" (or as big) as they used to be!  :)

This next LO is for a challenge at one of my new favorites blogs: "These Are a Few of My Favorite Things".  I plan on putting all LO's directly related ot my in my own album.  This challenge was to do your favorite shoes.  It was hard for me to decide because it is different at different times of the year and for different occasions.

I really don't know where this LO came from, creatively.  I knew that I wanted to use the black BoBunny background paper from the Mamma Razzi line, but all the other tidbits came from my scrap pile.  Except for the circle border strip, which is K& Co. Handmade that I got on clearance at Michaels.

 I also have been loving me some crackle paint and crackle accents, which I put on the photo frame.  I cut the photo frame myself from some chipboard after some carefully measuring, misted it, then crackled it.

I have a few more challenges that I am working on that I hope to get done in time!!!  TFL!
