FIFTH GRADE....OVER??!!

I cannot believe my daughter is heading into the sixth grade - she is my baby and is growing up so very fast! I want it to slow down just a little bit, they just don't stay little long enough to suit me. This layout uses her Spring picture from this school year - I just love how it turned out! She is so darn adorable (yep, she is mine, and I can say that!) and I just love her sweet smile! I used some of my May scrapbook kit from Coconuts, it is just fabulous! And, of course my Stampin' Up! stuff - I will provide a full recipe with all products listed and clearly identified. Don't forget about the sketch - hey, there is blog candy at stake! You have until the end of the month and the ones I have seen so far are totally wonderful! Thanks for playing along, I love it!
Have a wonderful weekend, all!

Paper - Office Lingo paper line, Basic Black card stock, Only Orange card stock, Office Lingo Journaling Tag
