Life is Sweet

Can you tell my kids are good sports about everything??  EVERYTHING is a photo op for me.  I saw this paper a million years ago and then not so long ago found the cherry bling.  I HAD to schedule a cherry picking day!  They love everything I plan for least in the beginning.  After a while, it got hot out, they were hungry and were tired of eating the cherries, they were tired of smiling, they wanted to pick something else.....and on and on it goes.  BUT...I got the pics I was aiming for.  Now I just have to figure out how to fit in everything I bought without going back for more pics!
I sprayed another doily and added a chipboard circle to it to frame the cherry bling.  The swirl accent was cut from Bo Bunny Chunky Charms and then I added some buttons.  The title was a hodge podge of things I had to search for.  I didn't have a single thing that would work.  I was always missing at least 2 letters!  The sketch is from Practical Scrappers this week.

Today was another photo op with the kids.  We went to a local nature center and the gardens were so pretty!  And we saw quite a few Monarch butterflies, but they didn't want to sit still long enough for pics.  And now my 3yo little boy will only sit still for pics if he can make scary monster faces....great.  Pretty pics of gardens and nature...and scary faces.  He better have this attitude when Halloween comes around!  


  1. Oh my, this is sheer perfection! What a darling photo, I am sure you are so glad you captured this one and mostly to put it into such a beautiful page! Lovely :)

  2. Very pretty! Great take on the sketch at Practical Scrappers! /Pia

  3. cool effect with the doily!
    I've given up trying to get my boys to stay put, and just snap away anyway!

  4. Cherry picking sounds like fun to me. Guess you are going to have enough photos to last well into retirement at the rate you are snapping them up, lol. Love how you altered the doily!

  5. This is a great layout! That sounds like tons of fun, too! Thanks for stopping by my blog from Tombow! I wanted to let you know that I posted the giveaway today, so come back and enter if you get a chance!
