Nap time!

One day when we were out running some errands, Madison was having a REALLY bad day. Like the photo mommy that I am, I had my camera with me and while she was in the middle of a fit, I took her picture. Nice of me, huh? ;)
Well, not long after I snapped the pic, she fell fast asleep and was soooo cute, I decided to take another picture of her, this time sleeping. As I was looking at the pictures, I realized what a cute scrapbook page it would make and decided to take one more shot of her when she woke up, now a happy girl! She's just so cute...

Supplies: October Afternoon Paper - Cotton Candy (polka dots); Cosmo Cricket Paper - Honey Pie (orange); We R Memory Keepers Paper - Grandma's Kitchen (blue); Making Memories Alpha Stickers - Chloe's Closet; Colorbox Chalk Ink - Chestnut Roan; Making Memories Sanding Block; Martha Stewart Clear Stamps - Hearts & Fowers (circles stamped on background); Thickers - Rootbeer Float; Making Memories Buttons; Fiskars Scallop Border Punch
*Based on the 10/1 sketch at Sketchy Thursdays

I really like how the page turned out, mostly because I actually used some stamps on it! I have so many stamps that I love, but I find myself only using them on cards, and I want use them on layouts more. I have a set by Martha Stewart called Hearts & Flowers that has different sizes of textured circles in it, so I took 2 of them out and just stamped randomly on the background paper for this page. I love the way it looks! Definitely something I'll do more of sometime soon. Have a great day! :)

Great job with those stamps, and too funny b/c I have a page just like that!!! I set my page up a little differently, but the pictures are exactly the same--fit, sleep, happy! lol. Too cute.
