My daughters got a manicure the other day with Jamberry nail wraps - and my little boy insisted on one too.  Except he didn't want any "stickers" on his nails.  He said he only needed his nails cut - stickers were for girls :)
I used Dawn Inskip's gorgeous new Create {Collection} at Scrapbook Graphics.

Streets of Beijing

From a walk around Beijing in August 2011.  It was 35°C and 95% humidity - but we all enjoyed it :)

Fabulous Moments

My daughters back in early April 2007.  My younger one had just turned 9 months and was days from starting to walk without support.  My older one was 4 years old and was (on occasion) happy to help her sister walk around :)
I used Anna Aspnes' ArtPlay Palette Across the Miles and Beautiy WordART No3 ~ both available at OScraps.


December 18, 2002 is when we got our pre-approval to adopt a baby from China.  We didn't know it then, but 14 days before, our baby girl was born :)
