Sunshine!

Today is a good day. I feel better, my son was excellently behaved in the food store. My sister wants to go home (even though that is very far from happening, it's a good thing I think). I'm posting the first Lil' Man layout today and will post more tomorrow. 
Imagine 
Supplies: Cosmo cricket Lil Man Patterned paper; Cosmo Cricket Lil Man Ready, set, chipboard; plus black bazzil cardstock.
It's the manufacturer's job to give us themes for the paper, but as a scrapbooker I do not let myself be defined by them. I love lil' man's papers because they are great colors, they set a mood, and they are gorgeous in real life. Just as I won't hesitate to use the green and blue papers in girl Friday for my son, I wouldn't hesitate to use the reds, blues, oranges and neutrals to scrap a little girl. I draw the line at scrapping my son with pink, I just can't sell that to dh. And even if I scrap photos of myself, I rarely use pink.  So, unless they are your own limitations, don't be limited. K? 
And I think I can finally say, I was asked to be the guest designer this month for A Million Little Things, please check their blog for 7 layouts to be posted in the next day or two. I love, love that store and I feel the customer service is the top of the industry. Jill sets a standard in getting you the latest and greatest and getting it to you fast. Love that website, I refer to it as "my happy place." So very excited for the opportunity this month. I couldn't pass it up even with all the craziness of CHA. Happy Thursday everyone!

Great layout, and I think you are doing great with letting the paper work with your style. Keep it up. And what an answer to prayers that your sister has her spunk to want to go home. Congrats on the GDT gig - I'll check out what's there!
