If you read my blog with any regularity you have probably figured out that my primary OBGYN is not in the town that I live. We have to travel 2 1/2 hours south of where we live to go to a Perinatal Center which specializes in higher risk pregnancies than what my town can do. In the city we go to, there is a mall with a Carousel. Our older daughter loves the carousel and wants to go on it every time we say we are going there. My youngest daughter says she wants to go on it but as of yet has not gotten past one foot up on the carousel platform. We keep trying though, and the nice people who run it give us back our dollar each time she decides she doesn’t want to ride after all.
Well Sweet Tomato Designs recently came out with a new kit in honor of her son Nolan. And although the colors of this kit could be very boyish, I love how they work with my story and my pictures. When the call came out that the kit was ready, I had just gotten my camera back from accidentally leaving it at a friends house over the Independence Day weekend. So as I downloaded pictures, these were right there and just calling to be scrapped.
Sweet Tomato Designs also is releasing today a set of templates and when I saw the one, I knew I just had to combine these two releases today into a 2 page layout. Here they are side by side.
The text on the left says…
“Lia, You completely cracked us up this day. We tried to get you on the carousel and you wanted nothing to do with it. So we got back off and as the music started you started dancing. As you saw Cayli go around on the carousel, you started chanting “Go Cayli, Go! Go Cayli, Go! Go Cayli, Go! Go Cayli, Go!” Your hands were moving up and down so fast like a cheerleader with her pom-poms that the camera, even on its “fast” setting for kids and pets could not keep up. And you kept that up for the ENTIRE carousel ride. Grandma and Aunt Beth couldn’t believe it. You started to get a little tired toward the end, but you just took another breath and kept on going. It’s been 2 months and we still haven’t gotten you on the carousel yet for your own ride. But you keep getting closer. One of these days you are going to get on, and have your ride and when you do, we’ll be chanting right with you, “Go Lia, Go! Go Lia, Go! Go Lia, Go!””
I love the way this layout came out and I hope as you are looking it you can see the effect of them side by side.

Remember my last post highlighting the kit Finley? Sweet Tomato Designs has also released Nolan and Finley in a Siblings Rivalry Como Kit so you can get both of them together. 🙂
