our ballerina girls and some Jillibean Soup love

Have I mentioned lately that I just love Jillibean Soup?

It has been a thrill to be on that team and "have to" play with all of that cute product. I can't wait for more new CHA  things (the new corrugated alphas, canvas shapes, sugar pics, more corrugated shapes, especially) to hit my doorstep but for now here's a layout I created for the blog for this month that I can share with you now that it's up on the Jillibean blog.

This is a picture that I took right after I finished making the girls' tutus. I told them I'd make them a deal- I'd make the tutus if they'd let me take pictures of them before the tutus got all messed up. So, on this particular day we went outside and I got some really cute shots of the girls. Sarah, on the far right, had had more than enough smiling pretty for the camera and she was more than ready to go play, tutu or not. I just love the look on her face with her little lips all stuck out.

To make the ruffled ribbon trim I sewed two pieces of Jillibean ribbon together then ran a stitch across the whole thing, gathered it up and adhered it to my layout. 

Yeah, I think I went a little crazy with the doodling on this one, huh?
