Scraptastic Design Team – Big Girl Things


My little baby girl got her ears pierced…another rite of passage I suppose. We waited until she was old enough to make this decision on her own.

She is growing up way to fast!

Off we went to Claire’s, a retail jewelry store, where the staff is at least 10-12 years younger than me. While I was excited for my kiddo, I couldn’t help but feel a bit of fear; I mean for goodness sake, I was willingly allowing a total stranger to poke tiny holes in my sweet angel’s precious ears!!!!

Within in seconds it was done. My tiny-tiny tried as hard as she could to hold back the tears. Initially she was so excited, until she realized what was about to happen! Oh, poor girl! Alligator tears led to the acquisition of two lolly pops (thanks to the Claire’s sales clerk) and a brand new Beanie Boo (the latest stuff animal craze…think Beanie Babies…but ten times better and with bigger globe like eyes – okay that part is a bit scary)!

All is well. 🙂


For this layout, I used the Scraptastic Gale Song Kit. I am working hard to use up every bit of this kit. It is easy to hoard!
