Hello Friends! How is your week going so far? I started it off by cleaning up the craft room on Sunday - I was down to about one square foot of useable space on my desk, and every other surface was piled up so much that I couldn't pile any more on! So, with a clear desk (clear mind), I decided to take on this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge!

I know that usually it's cards for this sketch, but since I am on a layout kick lately, I decided to make it work for me!

This photo was taken a couple of weeks after my youngest was born. I had purchased the "Big Sister, Little Sister" shirts while I was still pregnant - but I didn't know if we'd be able to use the "Little Sister" shirt or not! Now that I do have 2 little girls, I LOVE to dress them up the same... I am sure one day they'll fight me on it, but for now, I think it's adorable!

I also used this week's Totally Hues colour challenge, which was to use Lemon Tart, Raspberry Fizz, Plum Pudding and New Leaf. These are pretty bright colours for the shabby style I am loving on my layouts, so I added some paint and distress inks to help me out. Here are some detail shots:

You can see on my banner that I used a different vintage button for each pennant.

I stamped the Notebook die from PTI with a few lines to make it look like a ruled page... I love how it turned out!

Love it! The layout, the colors and the cute girls in their adorable shirts! I am glad that I am not the only one who ends up crowding my workspace down to slightly more than 12x12. I love it when it is all cleaned off but it never stays that way for long!

Love your layout! What a pretty page! Adorable little ones too. Enjoy dressing them now for as they get older with 'minds of their own', you will have a very hard time making them happy with what you pick out. Trust me, I have lived through this.

What a fabulous scrapbook page. The babies are so cute, and I adore their matching outfits. A wonderful page!

What a totally sweet layout! Love the way you toned down the chipboard letters, such a great effect!
