Oh, this girl...

My little Kati, Kate-Kates as we call her, lost her first tooth the other day! She has 2 teeth already in behind the one that came out, so I'm sure we'll have many more teeth coming out soon! She absolutely couldn't wait for the tooth fairy to come, who brought her a shiny $5 bill - now she's ready to lose MORE teeth!

This is a layout that I made for one of Shimelle's journaling classes last fall. My assignment was to look up a word in the thesaurus and use similar words for my journaling. I used the word "sweet" and found some other descriptive words that I could better use to describe Kati. I kept the layout clean and on the simple side, but added a stitched detail to enhance the punched hearts.
The journaling describes her to a T. She is so loving and compassionate for others...I can't wait to see what she'll be when she grows up...I have a feeling it will be a career in which she'll help people. I love this precious girl!

I am really feeling the need to work on more layouts, as I have such a great time with them, although they are more of a challenge for me. It goes in spurts. In the winter, I don't have as many new photos to scrap or opportunity to take pictures, so the other seasons seam to be more conducive to layouts for me. :) Well, I better get going, have so much to do today. Take care. xo
