Happiness is Swimming Layout

I did this layout back in January (during a "calm before the storm" at work) of Evie swimming last summer:

It mostly uses Cosmo Cricket's Summer Love, along with some puffy stickers and flair from Evalicious and Thickers (from Amy Tangerine Sketchbook, the chipboard muse/whitewash). There's also a little bit of Divine Twine thrown in there for the "EK" banners.

Evie was in the pool with Greg pretty often last summer. I'm expecting as much or more pool time this summer. Maybe this summer she will actually learn how to swim!

3/22/2014: How she finally fell asleep after almost two hours of playing in bed by herself/with her stuffed animals, talking to Roo, falling off the bed and bumping her head while playing, and otherwise stalling bedtime.

IMG_20140117_205141
