If only they'd stop...

I don't think that new parents truly realize how true the saying is about kids growing up too fast. I know I didn't, until I had my own children. Now Andrew, at 10, is the same size as I am, and Sophia, at 6, is already reading chapter books and starting to develop a style of her own. I can hardly remember when we took them home from the hospital! Gaaa!!!!

This layout is of my Sophie-girl and my little sister, Clare from last summer. They're all dressed up and looking waaaayyyy too old, but they're pretty stinkin' cute.

I completed this layout for the American Crafts weekly challenge on their blog here. This week they're challenging people to use two or more American Crafts products in a layout or project, and since I just got some of their beautiful Letterbox papers and more of my favorites, Thickers (love them!!!), I thought it would be a great chance. Who wouldn't want to win a goody box of brand - spankin' - new products that were unveiled at CHA?

This layout uses American Crafts Letterbox patterned papers, puffy Rainboots and fabric Delight Thickers, plus some Prima flowers and random ribbon & buttons.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
