This is my youngest daughter Vivian, age 4. On this particular day, about a week ago, she refused to take a nap. She then passed out on the couch right before dinner. Figures. She has such a sweet angel face...especially when she is sleeping! During waking hours she is non-stop talk, jump, hugs and dance. Spunky, sassy, hard-headed. My wild one.
My sweet baby. Love her.

This layout was inspired by the one seen here. I just love all the inspiration found on SCS! Even though it was pretty much completely scrap-lifted, these pages took some time. For starters, the teal cardstock I picked out was just way too bold. After stamping Unity's Distressed Dots with white acrylic paint and letting that dry, I went over the whole thing with a watered down mixture of white and green paint to soften it up. All the other papers got a healthy dose of distress ink. The other thing that help me up was the "problem" of too many pictures! I finally decided to hide a few more behind the layout with a pull-out tab. Worked great!

At the same sale, I found this little glass honey bottle for 10 cents.
The girls found three new (to them) Disney movies and a train set. I can't believe my oldest kid is 61/2 and we've never owned a train before. Well, can't beat $5 for a box FULL of tracks, signs, trees, etc.
The only one who missed out was Justin, poor guy! Oh, he did see a couch for $20, but I vetoed that since it was ugly and had a hole in it! Him: But it's only 20 dollars!!
I'm not sure what I'm going to do with my treasures just yet. If you have any creative ideas, let me know!
