A Couple Of Layouts...

Rainee loves loves loves the book... 'Green Eggs & Ham'... for that matter what kid doesn't??? It's such a fun book to read over and over again!!! Anyway, one of the mom's in Rainee's Kindergarten class wanted to not only read the book to the class, but actually make 'green eggs & ham' for the kids!! After reading the book to them... she had each kid break an egg into the bowl and stir it in... which Rainee does for me at home all the time... so she was a pro. When the 'green eggs & ham' were ready... each kid had to vote thumbs up or thumbs down if they liked it... and Rainee... well, as you can see, her vote was an emphatic thumbs down.... I love her face in these photos.... they are just too too precious! I think what kills me about her not liking the 'green eggs & ham'... is that she does like eggs... but she only likes them the way daddy makes them... she doesn't even like my eggs... so I don't think it would have mattered who made the eggs or what was in them, unless her daddy made them, it would have been a thumbs down no matter what!!!!! On this layout, I really wanted to incorporate the cover of the book somehow... but it just wouldn't work... I did however enjoy playing around with the new Cutables by Creative Imaginations for the background... I really love that paper... it's totally fun!

Speaking of playing around with background paper... the other day, I decided to play around with this Creative Cafés laser cut paper for my background on this layout...I know it's mostly flowers everywhere... but it reminded me of bubbles... and I thought it went perfectly with these cute swimming photos of Rainee!!!

Well... I think that's it for today... I hope you enjoy your day and you have fabulous weekend!!! I'll see you Monday... and thanks so much for stopping my... it really is appreciated!!!
