Peonies & Parades

A little girl from church gave this beautiful Peony to Leila on Friday. Leila carried it home in the car, making sure not to bend or damage it. Peonies are my absolute favorite! A flower this beautiful calls for a photo shoot. :-)

This is a photo from the Memorial Day parade on Monday. Leila wore one of her old size 3T dresses as a shirt. Quite the fashionista. I thought it was rather cute, but it only seems like yesterday my little girl was wearing it as a dress. Where does the time go?

I just love digital scrapbooking kits, but I'm having a lot of fun creating my own digital paper. I used my peony photo for the top pictures and Leila's dress as the background paper for the bottom one.

These are beautiful... I love how you used the flower photo as the background paper and zoomed in on your subject with the pink frame. The iris pages are gorgeous too! I too love peonies! They remind me of my childhood.
