I had this photo for a few weeks intending to use it for this page, and when I saw the challenge this month at Once Upon a Sketch, it totally got me inspired!
I got to use the "Foldies" for the first time and I have to admit they are quite fun! I did have to add some pop dots behind them, though to make them stand a bit better.
And I don't usually share my journaling (other than what you can see on a layout) but here are Charlotte's 24 things:
You know most of your colors (except red)
You still LOVE Froggie n’ Dolly
You are sleeping great in a big girl bed
You like to sit on the potty, but haven’t really gone yet
You think every animal says “moo”
When you spill something, you say “oops” and grab a towel to clean it up
You call yourself “Sha-Sha”
You can sing and hum the tunes to many songs
You can count to 6, but sometimes skip 3
You love beads
Your new favorite show is Thomas the Tank Engine
You walk up and down the steps without holding the railings (sometimes)
You can swim across the pool with your arm floaties on
You try and put on your own clothes
You said a 5 words sentence “Momma, I want more grapes”
You love mommy’s perfume, necklaces, and shoes
When you don’t want to go somewhere, your legs become “noodles” and you sit on the floor
You don’t stop running when I tell you to stop
You say please and thank you
You bring your stool over to the sink to brush your teeth
You help me empty the dishwasher and know exactly where everything goes
You still take a 2-3 hour nap most days
You pull my hand and say “show” when you want me to see something
Your hair goes to the middle of your back
This next page I did both for a challenge at My Scraps and More and the Crate Paper color challenge this month. There is a summer long contest going on at My Scraps called the "Got Talent" contest. It is not an elimination contest....anyone can play. You just earn points for things that you complete.
Anyways, I used some of the Crate Paper Emma's Shoppe papers to do this Mother's Day page.
I did some misting on the background with blue and black mists, and some random stitching here and there. I totally screwed up the stitching on the bottom element, which I wanted to stich over, but it got caught under my machine foot and went around instead...oh well.
