I Wash it Myself! and Winner

Hey everyone, hope that you had a great weekend!  Mine was busy, but I was able to get a fair amount of crafting in, including this layout for Elle's Studio's current sketch. 

Carina wants to do EVERYTHING by herself right now.  Most of the time I'm willing to let her try, but there are things that she's just not going to get to do, for example, when I'm holding her in the pool and she pushes me away and says 'I do it myself'....

Anyway, it's another kind of soft simple layout.  I wanted to create a lot of layers, but keep things subtle, so I pulled out the vellum, I love how vellum looks when layered on top of vellum.

I've also got a whole slew of Elle's tags on this one.  If you haven't figured it out, I'm a big fan of Elle's Studio, and if you've never used them you should really consider it.  Their products are VERY reasonable. For example the pennant cards, which contain 8 pennants are only $1.00.  I'm guessing the average price of their products is probably on the order of $2.50 or so.  Really affordable and reasonable and often just the right touch to finish out your project.

Elle's is actually running a referral incentive right now, so if you do happen to try them out, stick my name in the comments section of your order....I will be truely grateful.  :)

Oh yes, and I owe you a winner for my giveaway from last week.  The lucky winner is:
