Summer Lovin'

This is not a post where I extoll the virtues of that admittedly fabulous movie "Grease". It's just another post where I use yellow paper to try to remind myself winter is almost over. TGIM (March)!!!!!
A Day With Papi
Materials used: Crate Paper/Studio Calico exclusive paper, Sassafras Lass Foldies (Sweetly) and Sweetly Smitten flags, Maya Road star pins, Crate Paper and Studio Calico paper strips, Prima Donna Downey Sculpture Flowers, American Crafts Aquatic paperback fabric alphas, AC pink fabric alphas, Studio Calico Country Side Die Cut tag, red and pink ribbon.
Your Scrapbook Stash sketch challenge 4/4/11.
I'm submitting this page for a Your Scrapbook challenge. Their sketch challenges are gorgeous- check them out. I ordered a "butt load" of stuff over at 2 Peas and unlike my usual M.O. (stuffing it away for later) I broke it out and had some FUN! I didn't know where to begin- the colors in the Crate Paper, Studio Calico and Sassy new releases had me in a tizzy.
Run outta room? That's what THESE are for!
This page is about how much Lola loves Daddy. When 5 o'clock rolls around she starts looking for him and the minute she hears him in the hallway she jumps off whatever she's currently trying to scale (her latest "wonderful" habit) and runs to meet him. She gives him a little scream and jumps up for her hug- my husband is Bono to our kid. It's nice.
That tag- pink AND a grid??? LOVE IT!

I used to get jealous of these moments- why doesn't she give a little scream for ME? But she sees me everyday- I'm furniture (literally- she's constantly trying to climb me). Daddy leaves AND returns so he gets rock star status. It's ok- I'll take this life over my previous one working 14 hour days for EVIL bosses anytime!
Lola BREAKS!!!
