I've been a scrappin fool...

Alright, before we go any further, for those of you who have ZERO interest in scrapbooking, this would be a great place to stop reading. But before you go, leave a comment just to say hi :-). I love to see that people stop by to see me.

Ok, now for you readers who have an appreciation for the hobby of scrapbooking...continue on :-). Well, I've been on a roll here lately and have popped out quite a few LO's. Sure, it has taken me several weeks to complete these, as I'm just anal like that. But in my own defense, when you have a subject as beautiful as my Jayla is, these things can't be (What a bunch of ka-ka, huh?) Ok, the part about Jayla being beautiful wasn't the ka-ka part, cuz there's truth in EVERY part of that...but me just being slow and anal and mojoLESS was the ka-ka part. But anyway, they are now done and I LOVE them.

These are more shots from the photo shoot that Jayla did back in April. If you've been keeping up with my layouts, the most recent ones I posted are from that same shoot.

OK, ok...I can tell when I've talked up something enough. So without further ado, here's my most recent work.

This first one is entitled: Lovely Day
I was driving down the street a few weeks ago and the song "Lovely Day", by Bill Withers came on the radio. This is one of my all time favs. As the song played, it made me think about Jayla and how she just brightens my day. Part of the lyrics say, "Just one look at you, and I know it's gonna be...a Lovely Day!" And to me, that perfectly describes how I feel about my little princess...Every single day.

This next one is entitled: Girly Girl
Not much needs to be said about this one. Jayla IS a girly girl...or a Girls Girl :-).

This one is entitled: Feisty Fairy
I simply love these shots. At first, she wasn't too happy about having to wear the little tu-tu. I think she said it was a little too tight around her waist. So we fixed that for her and the rest is "Feisty" :-). I just love the funky socks, the "old skool" sneakers and the expressions on her face. Once the "fairy" part of the shoot was over, Jayla was disappointed, she was NOW having a good time wearing the tu-tu.

Well, that's all I've got for now. But before I sign off for the evening, I want to give acknowledgement and a BIG OLE appreciation shout out to my friends over at Cherry Berry Studio. Cynthia and Lisa, ya'll ROCK and you sure know how to work a camera (you too Theresa). You guys are the best and I can't thank you enough.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

No, I'm not a scrapper, er, scrapbooker, but gotta say those pictures of the girlie girl are as cute as always! My daughter wasn't the natural-born runway model poser that Jayla is, but she was her own kind of girlie girl. There was something about her that left no question in most minds. Even in jeans and t-shirt or a neutral "onsie" (although they weren't called that back then) and before the head of hair was in a pony tail, people looked at the baby in my arms and knew she was a girl.

Some girls just "got it"!!!

Not a Scrapper but I wanto to.. just don't have the time right now. Maybe one day. I love reading about your scrapping though and looking at your adorable daughter!

Gretchen said...

I remember when you had these taken, Dawn, and I'm just as impressed now as I was then. You have quite a talent at pulling great colors and themes for your LOs. I sure love the turned in toes on one of those shots.

I'd say, you've found your mojo. :)
