Oh-la-la

That’s our Amy’s favourite saying right now whilst she’s dressing up in all her mammy’s bling lol.  Terrible two’s or not, she’s mam-mar’s little cutie pie.  Yes, even when she’s eating the sand from her mud kitchen.  I burst out laughing when I saw this photo, the expression is priceless!   Now I just gotta find a pic of her all clean and blinged up lol.  When I think back to 2 years ago when we so nearly lost our little princess it’s amazing how resilient children really are.

So, with Oh-la-la in mind I dug out one of my favourite Whiff of Joy stamps – Willow Dressing Up, she is just gorgeous!

I have been a brave girl and actually broke in to my BG Capella pad, oh the PAIN!!  I kept the embellies simple as I did not want to cover the gorgeous paper.

Paper: Basic Grey Capella

  1. ahhhhhhhhhhh what a fab photo. Cool card too but guess the saying 'never work with children and animals' applies to card making too. The kiddies steal the show.
