As many of you know, I have been toiling away at a scrapbook for my niece for a month, or so. I'm back again with another! The single layout pages are sometimes the toughest for me: you know, the first and last page of a scrapbook? I like to leave room for larger photos, so it always seem like I don't have enough room for embellishes and the photo mats that I want, but I think I did okay with this one. :0) The ovals are rather large, so the pictures for this page should still be a good size, and with the help of the girly-girl embellishes, really tell a story for my niece. I'm really hoping my sister chooses to use some black and white pictures on this - I think that would really set it off! :0)
Although the scanner did not pick it up well, there is all kinds of Star Dust Stickles on this page, to add to the nostalgia and whimsy of childhood days. :0) I created my girl on the swing svg from a digital image, and cut it on my eClips machine. The sentiment was typed up and I used some Nesties to punch it out.

Only a couple more pages to go, and then the book will be sent off for the birthday party! :0)
