Thank Heaven for Little Girls and New Blog Design

 Hello and Happy Wednesday!  I hope you are having a beautiful day!  How about a big Yee Haw for this new blog design?  My friend Sheri at My Sheri Crafts created this for me.  I love it!  Didn't she do great? 

I would like to share with you a layout I made of my girls and my hubby.  One rainy afternoon the girls wanted to help their Pa get into the house dry, so they waited for him with umbrellas in hand.  I suspect they really wanted to play with the umbrellas more than they were concerned about their Pa getting wet! :)

 I made the umbrella border from A Child's Year in various pieces of scrap paper.   I think I cut them at 1 1/2" - not sure now.

I wrote the sentiment with a marker, after practicing several times!  These two are pop dotted.  I kind of wish I had use pop dots on one or two in the top border, but I guess it's o.k.!

All the white accents are made with a white gel pen. 

This was a really fun layout, love all the color.  I had it pictured in my head pretty much this way and I'm pleased with the result.  Hope  you like it!  Thanks for stopping by!

I also found a challenge this qualifies for:
