My Closet Shoes

These shoes live in my closet and have a very easy life - along with a few other pairs of very good looking high heeled shoes and boots, I bought at the same time, but have never been worn.  I'm very much a hiking-boots kind of person - but I do love a beautiful looking shoe, and I've got to own it, even though I'll never wear it :)
I used Jenna Desai's amazing kit My Closet ~ available at The Lily Pad.

Just Turned 5

My younger daughter newly awake and very excited - VERY early on her 5th birthday back in June :)
I used Jenna Desai's gorgeous new kit Birthday Wishes as well as Jenna's Flower Bits and Just Swirls ~ everything available at The Lily Pad.  The template is a retired one from Tiny Toes Designs.

The Phone

It's not often that a kit inspires me to do a layout - it's usually the photo which takes me somewhere.  This time, however, when unzipping Studio Maya's Post Script Master Collection, I had a need to scrap about the country phones we had when I was growing up and the old phone my grandmother used to have - which looked almost identical to the one in Maya's kit :)
I did this for Maya's Playday at Scrapbook Graphics...
