Girls Days

We are enjoying a few Daddy free days this week while the other half brings home the bacon from Jakarta. It is fun with a slightly different routine albeit with a slightly clingier wee one. She does miss her Dad when he is gone.

I tried to take some more candid photos of Scarlett at play yesterday and I was quite pleased with the result. I am definitely going to scrap some soon.

I love the second one as she was making her lion toy and her giraffe talk to each other. She is quite an animated wee girl and I think this shot captures that aspect of her personality. I love sitting and watching her create back stories for all her toys and act things out. I cannot believe the change in her play in the last couple of months!

I have also scrapped some of her playtime favourites lately.

Scarlett loves to wear her Dorothy the Dinosaur tail out and about. Dorothy loves to dance and so does Scarlett... I think that is her favourite part of the character. This photo was taken while she was getting ready to perform "on stage" at the top of a flight of stairs at our building. Scarlett cannot help herself from getting onstage and twirling if she sees a stage anywhere. I think she has a performer gene!

I used some scraps and the gorgeous MME paper from 35 mm along with the gorgeous exclusive Thickers from So Cal and a few glittery butterflies from that kit too. More dyed hexagons finished it off along with a couple of pieces of MME chipboard. There is also some hidden journalling tucked behind the photo.

Have a wonderful week! We are having a bit of a heat wave here so am off to try one of the water play areas with Scarlett tomorrow. Looking forward to sharing our discoveries with you later in the week.
