Okay... go ahead and tell me... Is this just the most precious picture or what?!! So.. perfect title?!! I love this picture of Lauren. It was taken a few years ago and I have to say, she was all about the photo shoot that day! She seriously should be a model because the girl can work a camera!! You should have heard the photographer and his assistant cracking up at how she was always ready with the next pose! This was probably the hardest photo to get because we had to get her to look AWAY from the camera!!  LOL!! Gotta love her!

So... the sketch for this LO comes from the fabulous ladies over at Stuck On U Sketches!! The sketch is from Aymee Gandy. There were so many possibilities with this one... but I love what I was able to do!! I originally had a great big flower where the butterfly was but it seemed to take over the page... so I replaced it with the butterfly which was a softer, more delicate look... I think it looks better with this photo!

My papers are from SEI... the butterfly, flourishes and flowers are Prima...from my good friend Fern's blog candy!... The key is SEI... the clock is Making Memories. The only cricut on this one is the title... Gypsy Font... I cut it out 4 times and glued the layers together to give it a little more dimension... ribbon is from my stash and the pearls are Recollections.

Thank you for stopping over and leaving such nice words!! I love hearing from all of you!  Barb :)

I thought I was going to get a second today but thats about all I's up!
I was just thinking about you, trying to remember if I had read that book, The Locket, but I just don't remember...excited for you to read it though! I know I have read quite a few and loved them all! My favorite was one called The Last Promise.
ok...I hear the water running in the bathroom...never a good sign with little kids! LOL!
