Where is my little girl, Dancing Queen, and Say Cheese!

Let's much going on!

So glad that Crate Paper is doing their monthly sketches again!  I have been in my scraproom organizing a lot lately, and decided I was going to use up some of my stash.  So I used some older lines to do this page about Charlotte.

All of a sudden, I have this little girl....and I used to have a BABY!  People always say it goes by so fast, but I had no idea.....

I loved the idea of journaling in between the strips on the sketch, so that is what I picked up on.  I really don't use a lot of flowers on layous, but i really liked this patterned paper. 

At Scrapdango, there was an ad inspiration challenge as part of the Crowned contest.  Here is the ad:

I used the ad in MANY ways for this page.

First, the idea of a "queen", ,or someone wearing a crown was what sparked me to use these photos, and hence the title.
I used the color palette and the design of the add with two same sized panels next to each other.

I also used the 4-pointed star shapes, and created my own journaling box the same shape as the text boxes in the ad.
Finally, I use the font and colors of the title to make the word "Queen" on my page (but oppisite colors).

And this last page was created for the Throwdown challenge at Memorable Seasons.  You had to use white space, doodling, a mask, and paint or mists.  LOVED this challenge!  I used my February Kit from YSS to make this page, and I LOVE LOVE it so much!

We went to the outlet mall last weekend, and I didn't get a thing for myself, mostly becuase I am pregnant and didn't want to buy any clothes, and I need shoes and accessories like I need a hole in the head, so I didn't get a thing.  But Miss Charlotte and Daddy made out good!  While we were sitting the the food court, I saw the photobooth and asked hubby PLEASE to sit down and take some pics...he HATES doing things like that in public.  This booth had a video screen on the outside and you could see what was going on "behind the curtain".  It was only $3 for 4 pics.  FINALLY he agreed to it, and it was the best $3 I ever spent at the outlet mall.  OK, maybe not, but it's close....

The pics themselves weren't great quality, but what do you expect for $3?  Plus, I think they are great anyways!!

Can't WAIT to go to Archiver's for the day tomorrow with my good friend HEATHER!  Expect lots of projects to be posted next week!

All of your layouts look beautiful. The journaling between the strips is a cool idea on the Crate LO. Enjoy your day at Archiver's tomorrow. Sounds like a lot of fun!
