More Fancy Pants...

Every month, our design team at AMM chooses a member's layout that inspired us in some way. This month, the DT chose an awesome layout by the fabulous Susan Dupre. I took inspiration from the circles she used on her layout, and I incorporated circles on mine. You can see the original layout and some of the ways other members of the DT took inspiration from the layout here.

I used more of the Roadshow line (are you sick of me using that yet?? lol), and that gorgeous pink crocheted trim is also part of the line. I also am in love with the new letter stickers FP released with these new lines!

Journaling reads:
Now that i'm finally past the sick stage of pregnancy, I'm trying to enjoy every last detail, as you will be our last baby. After you make your appearance, our family will be complete.

So, I took the plunge and decided to get Chloe's hair cut yesterday. In her 3 years, she's only had two haircuts - one when she was a baby to get bangs cut (that didn't last long), and once about a year ago to get a small trim. Well, it has gotten so long - it was down to the end of her back - and it's getting more and more difficult to brush every day and keep out of her face. With the heat coming, I figured it would be easier on everyone if we got it cut. She did great, and I think she looks adorable :-)

After:
I think she got about 6 inches taken off! My big girl!

I got my goooorgeous April AMM kit yesterday, and I can't wait to dig in this weekend! We also have fun plans - we are going to the circus tomorrow, and we have front row seats. Friends of ours had the tickets and ended up going on vacation, so lucky us get to be the recipients - can't wait :-)

Have a great weekend, everyone!
