A Lifebook page for Lara

I have fallen behind on Lara's lifebook (bad mommy) but now that school is getting started I'm planning on getting caught up for the lifebook group I lead for making a one lifebook page a month.  Here is a page I finished yesterday.  The bit of orange blur near the stamp on the page is text I hid, as it is her information to share, not mine.  I got lots of inspiration for this through challenge blogs.  I used a sketch from Sassy 'Lil Sketches (love it!), the colors from The Play Date Cafe, pearls and lace from Simon Says Stamp, layers from Simon Says Stamp and Show/, and border punch from Scrap Our Stash.  The lace was originally white but I sprayed it with glimmer mist to match my color scheme.


Hope everyone is having a great Saturday morning.  We're just hanging around.  Lara's asthma is awful so I'm just trying to keep her calm and quiet.  Not an easy thing to do with a 2 yr old!  Anyone doing anything fun this weekend?
