Things I love about you

This picture was taken when we visited Legoland in 2007, and when you were really into face-painting.  By now, you've already outgrown face-painting... and it got me thinking, how fast you've grown.  Well, not that fast, really.  But in my mind, I seem to only remember holding you UPRIGHT in our arms, walking around and around in the living room, sometimes for hours it seems, until the tiny little you stop crying and fall asleep.

And we never seem to have told you enough how much we love you.  We want to tell you for each 'issue' we have with you, there is a blessing that you bring to us.  And really, as many flaws as you or anyone has, you have as many wonderful good qualities.  But it really doesn't matter, because really, deep in our hearts, we love you just for who you are: a gift to us from God.  We need to tell you that.

And I probably could also tell you that I really love the new Konnichiwa line from Basic Grey!   And I'm taking up on the challenge to use some other shapes than rectangle and square... so I used quite a few circles, taken from the blossom motif in the background paper.   And while we're on the Asian theme here, I also break out some K&Co Mira embellishments.  And that reminds me, we have to scrap those Shanghai pictures soon... before we make 3 more trips there....

(I'm very honored to have this layout featured in Basic Grey's Eye Spy on 5/19/12).
