I love the drawing from your daughter most of all!!! Love this mini... haven't had time to make one myself. It's so colorful and summery and as always you have the cutest family. The deadline is Saturday evening? I might have time afterall. :) Your pages always inspire me to scrap again, now if only I could get off my lazy butt and do it. xxoo
