Perfect In Every Way...

My girls -- though sometimes they certainly don't act that way...but overall, yeah, they're perfect.  In my Mommy brain anyway :).  I watched them dancing in the family room the other day, thinking, "Boy, I'm going to miss that when they're all grown up".  It's amazing how time goes so fast, isn't it?  It seems like just yesterday I brought S home, and now she's 6!!  A is 2 and a half, and she's getting so big...and FUNNY.

When I want them to stop doing what they are doing, I usually count.  1....2....and 3 is when they get in trouble.  Well, A is DEFINITELY testing her boundaries, so she keeps doing what it is she's doing, and looks at me getting annoyed, and she'll LAUGH.  I say to her "A, am I laughing??"  She says..."No, but Mommy...I laughin'"...I have to hide my face, because it's hysterical, but I don't want her to know that...

Well, with growing up, comes things, like a big girl bed.  We went and bought the girls bunk beds Saturday, and they are VERY excited for them to arrive...and with that, my husband and I have decided to surprise them with new bedding, and some decorations for their room...and THAT brings me to my project for today.

Unfortunately, I didn't have the frame finished for my post, but I'll take a picture of it when it's hanging up in their room.

I decided to make a piece of wall art for their room, of my girls, so I'll always remember this stage in their lives.  Their TOTALLY girly pink room, and the innocence they both share...the Fanciful Flourishes and So Sentimental stamp sets from My Time Made Easy, made it simple to incorporate everything I wanted into the layout...take a look:  


I did use a sentiment from All a Flutter, but only because it fit so well.  The panels with the girls' initials were stamped with one of the lovely flourishes, and I added on some flowers, which I used the rock and roll technique on.  Then I added some stickles and liquid pearls to finish them off.  On either side of the page, I've stamped the largest flourish image down the sides of the page.  Then on the bottom, I used that GREAT frame from so sentimental to highlight my sentiment.

Here's a closeup of one of the initial panels, so you can see the sparkle, and the colors...

The colors were pulled from their new bedding, I'm so excited for them to see it all put together!

The rest of the My Time Made Easy team has something to share with you today as well, so be sure to stop by their blogs, and see what they've made!!!
