Who's That Girl? and The Scrappiest

Since hubby has been working all week I have had a lot of time to scrap and the mojo is just flowin'! Hence all the blog posts...:)

Some sites I have been stalking are Who's That AAM challenge blog, and The Scrappiest...a sketch blog.

The Challenge at "Who's That Girl" was to finish the statement: "Happiness is...".  I know this is an All About Me blog, but one thing about ME is that I love to take lots of photos.  I had taken Charlotte outside and I wanted to get some photos of her playing with some bubbles.  Well she was having nothing to do with it.  Shw could have cared less.  I can tell she is teething a bit again because she is gnawing on everything.  I just kept taking photos hoping I could catch one good one of her smiling and playing.  Well these are what I ended up with.  I just love that middle photo of her crying even though those "moments" I don't really look forward to! 

So I thought it was ironic that the challenge was "happiness is" because even though I didn't get exactly what I wanted, I was still happy with the photo.

I made the flowers by cutting strips of muslin and misting them with Glimmer Mist and then twising them.  I used Fabric Tac glue, which is acetone based, and I just have a manicure last week....NOTE: don't use this glue if you have nail polish on!!!  It totally ruined my polish!  :( 
All the papers are Pink Paislee Queen Bee (my FAV) and the letters are Basic Grey mini monos.
I had this greyish ribbon that I pleated with my machine.

I found The Scrappiest through a link on the message board at Memorable Seasons. What I loved about this sketch is that it had one portrait photo and one landscape photo. 

I got these Fancy Pants Road Show papers at Archiver's this past weekend and the fruit are from October Afternoon and American Crafts.

More to come!
