We had a long talk about how only mommy or the lady at the salon can cut her hair. And then I made her first hair appointment. On the day of, she didn't want to go, because she thought the salon was a doctor's office and that she would be getting a poke. But when I assured her they were just going to cut her hair, and afterwards, they'd sprinkle her hair with sparkles, she was on board. That said, my little monkey is not a fan of the camera, so I didn't get the sweet smiles I was hoping for, but I'll take what I can get, because it's her. And it's her fun personality, shining through.
Oh man, wouldn't it have been great if she had given me a pretty, genuine smile? If anyone has any thoughts on how to get her to do that, I'd appreciate it. She has a great smile, but does NOT like to share it when the big bad camera is out.
I'll leave you with my interpretation of CPS 25. I participated in a swap at Scrappers Bliss and my girl got me a bucket full of Love, Elsie Roxie. And THEN my inlaws were on a road trip and since they were stopping in at a Hobby Lobby, I asked them to pick me up a little somethin' somethin', as I live in Oregon and would have to drive to Utah in order to check it out. Well, sweet people that they are, they got a little overwhelmed in the Love, Elsie, aisle, and got me ONe. Of. EVEryTHING. EEK! I have a LOT of work to do. Check it out:
There are FOUR mini albums in that loot. EGADS! I have plans for the blue flower one, but I'm fairly overwhelmed myself by the rest of it. I'm excited about those stamps on the left, though. I didn't know Elsie had stamps! CHA was a couple of weeks ago. I am going to have to get working in order to get through this before the new stuff begins to hit stores. I might have to do a little RAK or something so that some of this goes to good homes!
Anyway, here's my card with some Roxie charms and chipboard buttons. I also used some Making Memories patterned paper with my cardstock, and stitched like mad! :
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
