whimsy afoot





to be honest, when i saw the pack of sassafras wild flower paper whimsies i figured i'd be putting them in the giveaway pile. my first impression: they were kind of flat.

au contraire mon ami (remember i didn't take french, ever. i just pretend to know it.)

these whimisies are da bomb. you can bend and shape them. you can crinkle them. you can pop dot them. you can add diamond glaze. you can add brads and buttons. you can make fun poppy-outy things to add even more dimension. hee! i had so much fun with this layout, it makes me smile.

all products are from the april studio calico kit.

the journaling on this one goes straight into the "you had to be there" category, but it was quite humorous at the time. we were all prodding ethan to go ask for something at a burger joint we were consumering. he didn't want to. annie, in all seriousness, gave him this advice. i LOVE my kids. they bring me so much joy.
