Pure Beauty

Good morning and happy Monday to you! It has been a busy weekend filled with training puppies, swimming with the kiddos, and BBQ's! I forgot how much work a new puppy can be!

 I have a LO to share with you from Cortney's prom. I hope you aren't tired of seeing photos from her dance yet! ; )I used my Cricut and the Pretty Pennants cartridge to cut lots and lots of pennants. I covered some of the pennants with Washi tape because I happened to own some in the hot pink, black, and turquoise color scheme, and wanted to incorporate it into the LO.  I used a Hambly dress form sticker, some letter beads, and kraft circles sewn together.....but can't remember off hand who those are by!

Some of my LO's make it on Cortney's bedroom wall.  She is a bit of a narcissist and loves looking at herself! ; )  So I bought several 12 x 12 scrapbook frames and hung them above her shelves. I don't use the glass because my LO's are too lumpy! ; )

Here it is framed against her blue wall. 
Here are the other two LO's......the one in the middle is a really old LO....it will be swapped out at some point. The one on the left you saw awhile ago......
Cortney has a very busy, girly, girl bedroom.....and I thought I'd give you a little tour. Since Cortney still has "tummy" time I have lots of baskets filled with her toys and books.  She crawls to them, pulls the basket out, and takes out whatever toy/book she wants to play with. She has many, many videos......too many. She has a little hand-painted doll bed and armoire for her dolly, Gloria.
She has a huge bulletin board from Pottery Barn filled with her awards, pictures, and this banner I made for her awhile back. I spelled her name a bit differently when she was born, so it isn't easy to find personalized stuff for her.  Which leaves that task to me! ; )
I also made this frame for her with all her cheer leading gal pals using my Cricut. I even made real pom poms for my tiny cheerleader in the corner!
And last but not least.......Myla has decided she likes Cortney's bedroom.  Cortney has a door that leads to our deck, that leads to our pool.  And because the door is open much of the time, a lot of sun comes through.....perfect for sunbathing. ; )
Whew! Are you still with me?  I was a bit long winded today I guess! 
Cortney is back in summer school today, and I've never seen a kid who is soooooo excited to go back! 
Have a fabulous day!
:)

A beautiful layout - in terms of design and photos. Love your colors and all of the details - I would want to hang it up in my room too! Love the three that are hanging there and all of the personal touches. Good to hear Myla is in love with Cortney's room. It is always nice to know where to look first!
