Two layouts featuring Gracie

I didn't realize it while I was doing my assignments this week, but both pages feature my youngest daughter Gracie.

For Scrap it With a Song, the song was "Born to be Wild" by the great Stepphenwolf.    I titled my page "Born to be Wild?" and used a picture of Gracie taken when we were still in the hospital.   She is such a wild thing now (everyone comments on how fast she is and crazy she is) that is hard to remember how quiet she started.  Even in utero she was calm.  I had to do the kick counts every day because she rarely be-bopped around in there.  (In contrast Bella was a soccer player constantly beaten me, to the point that people could see my stomach moving.) Then Gracie was born and she did cry right away, but those two days in the hospital I actually worried about how quite she was.  That all changed quickly, and that is what my journaling is about.  So here is the page,

 This one is from a kit at the Scrap-Room.

This week's challenge is being sponsored by Digital Delights and they have offered up to the winner a $10 gift certificate that will equal 5 images.  So if you want to play along please do, just link up your creation to the main blog.

Now on to the next layout about Gracie.  This one is for Scrapbook Challenges and it is sketch 223.    This page is entitled "Dancing Queen" (I JUST realized I spelled Dancing wrong on this page, so I will fix it asap) and features Gracie dancing on the table whilst posing for the camera.   It truly shows her wild side.

So here is the sketch

And here is my page

This page is from a kit at Dixie Pieces.
