Layouts on Thursday!

|"6 Personality Traits"|
This just cracks me up. My granddaughter wanted me to take photos of her in the garden with the new "Minnie Mouse" Skirt I had made her. She was on her scooter but stood still for a few minutes so that I could take the photos when I suddenly realised that she had no knickers on! When she knew that I had spotted this, she just went into fits of laughter and flicked up the back of the skirt and flashed her lovely chubbly bum at me. Absolutely typically "cheeky" of her and demonstrates her fantastic personality and sense of fun. So I guess it's more about the memories than the actual layout itself.
Difficult to know what it's one of my favourites. I liked the red polka dot bow which was supposed to match the bow on her head (on her Minnie Mouse ears). I just think it's cute.
|"Ten Days To Go"|
I really like this one. It started out as "not very promising". Just a few bits of odd paper left over from something else. I had actually made the basic layout months before without even having any photos in mind and just tucked it into a "work in progress" file. Then I remembered these photos of my daughter in the final few days of her pregnancy. She had horrendous morning sickness (for the third time) and had just been constantly ill practically from the first month. With two other little girls to care for, she really struggled all the way through. This was the best we had seen her for nine months and it was just such a joyous picture, it had to go on orange papers! The cluster came together really quickly (probably because I'd just done the Nic Howard Big Picture Workshop and it was fresh in my mind). Also I was really pleased with myself because I got the Number 10 on the Tim Holtz tape measure just in the right place to fit in with the title for the layout. Yep, so definitely this was one of my favourites.
