I feel pretty..oh so pretty

I just love these photos from our Spring photo shoot.  I woke my daughter up EARLY and drove her all around town posing with pretty flowers.  It turned out to be only 55 degrees that day, but she was amazing and since she LOVES posing, she did an great job.  After a while, she was pointing out spots to stop and take pictures.
These trees were in the parking lot of my oldest daughter's school.  I drop her off every morning and I was stalking them for the best time to go back for pictures.
This sketch was from Sketches in Thyme.  Love how pretty it looked and couldn't wait to get started.  The hard part again was choosing just the right pictures.
Lots of mixed papers here.  Again, these were old sheets in my stash.  No idea where there are from.  None of them had names on them anywhere.  The chipboard tag is from Basic Grey.  I colored it up a bit with Tombow markers.  These markers are amazing on chipboard!  Then I sprayed some Sparkle shimmer mist on it just to add a little pretty.  And just for the heck of it, I used a border punch on the edge of the tag.  
Other materials used:
Prima pearl swirls
Prima flowers
K&Company flowers
Miscellaneous ribbons
MIscellaneous brads

And....laundry load #3 is just getting started!  I feel so productive and creative today!!!  I wish laundry was just as much fun as scrapping!
