Oh happy day, its finally Friday and that means its another reveal at SOUS..
We had the awesome privilege of using one of Aymee Gandy's sketches..
I didn't do the journaling around the edges cause I'm so bad at it, I just never know what to say and then just sound like a blabbering idiot...LOL :O)
I did have such a great time putting this layout together.. One of the joys was going through my son Aaron's old photos.. He is almost 3 years old in this photo and we had just moved to Finland back in 96. We stayed with my mom for a few months and drove her nutts..:O)
I've never had any problems with my kids taking naps and as you can see by this pic that they can pretty much sleep anywhere.. These chairs were so uncomfortable. :O)
The design behind the layout came when I was looking at the photo and thought "wonder what he was dreaming about?".. and Humpty Dumpty came to mind (as strange as my mind can be at times)... dont' ask...LOL :O) I guess kids and nursery rhymes kind of go hand and hand...

If you wish, you can download the design file HERE..
*You have to have the DS software for the design file to work and it will be a copy and paste job :O)
Thank you ladies so much for looking and I hope you will stop by SOUS this week and join in on the fun, plus you all need to come and check out what the rest of the design team has been up to..
