The Beat of Your Own Drum

After a couple weeks off, Elle's Studio's layout sketch is back. 

I've been wanting to scrap these photos for a while.  I just kind of shake my head every time I look at them.  Carina loves to 'accessorize' her outfits.  This morning she asked me to put one of her new barrettes in, which looked very cute.  Then she decided that she wanted to wear her swim diaper, and her crocs, and she wanted her picture taken.  I love how her pajama bottoms look kind of like capris since they got hiked up when she was struggling with the swim diaper.  The girl is a crazy mess, but pretty funny.

I've been working on incorporating more stamping in my layouts, and I managed to incorporate stamps from three different companies:  Neat & Tangled, Mama Elephant, and There She Goes.  A little sparkle, a little stitching, and done!  Although in all honesty, this one took a little longer than I thought it would....it's pretty simple, but it took me a while to pull together all the parts.

Hope your week is off to a good start.  First day back after five off for me, not too bad, actually managed to get a fair amount done.
