Shimmer!

So I had one rough day yesterday (you know, one of THOSE days mom's...). But the good news is that I am having a GREAT day today!! Here are ALL my reasons.... I got my new Scrappy Moms Stamps (I will brag those up later in my post!), I had a couple hours at the spa with my mom, grandma, aunt and cousin (who is one of my best friends), AND I got the disc of proofs from the photoshoot I took Brittyn to the other day!! This could be one looong post so get comfortable! :)

Look at these adorable shots!! I'm going to have troubles deciding which ones I want to order prints of.... (skip this part if you're not into the personal stuff....)






The photographer never got any of her with her great big smile but I think they're pretty cute none the less.

And here is my project!!


These are pics of Bria when she was about 22 months old. I just got her ears pierced that day and it looked so cute!!



Check out my new Scrappy Moms Stamps!!! I love them!


This is my first set of Scrappy Moms Stamps and I am so happy with them! They come in a BIG sheet and the stamps are the perfect size! A lot of the sentiment stamps I have bought I find are a little too small but these are awesome! I love being able to incorporate them into a layout.

Details....
- Diamond (cut @ 2.7") was from Once Upon A Princess, covered in Martha Stewart glitter and Glossy Accents. I love covering glitter with Glossy Accents so the glitter doesn't fall off and end up everywhere...
- 'You sparkle' sentiment was from Scrappy Moms Happily Ever After set
- 'Shimmer' title is cut at 2.5" from Once Upon A Princess
- Twine is from The Twinery
- buttons, ribbon and jewels are from my stash
- striped pink paper is cut @ 9"x9" and is from the DCWV Baby Girl stack
- pink background layer is a full letter sized sheet
- stitching with my white Gelly Roll pen

With my layouts I always have to try to find a balance between quick and still super cute. Sometimes it's hard because I would love to add a whole bunch to the layouts but I know I just don't have the time... I'm working hard on catching up the girls' scrapbooks since I know summer will bring a lot more pictures to scrap... Wish me luck! :)

I love your layout! I mean, how cute is that? Love all the girly pink, ribbon and bling! And your daughter is a cutie-pie...just adorable!

Such pretty pics of your Lil' Princess! I don't envy you having to choose which ones to order - they're all adorable! I used to have to do that, but then I started taking my own pics. Not the prop selection like the pro places, but I can torture, I mean photograph my children as long as I want until I feel I got the pics I wanted - LOL!

And your layout is very sweet. Great job! I'm jealous that you have the SM Happily Ever After set already!I so want it! :)

My vote is for the first picture with the tutu and teddy bear. She looks absolutely adorable. Your layout is great too. Both of your daughters are adorable.
