Another Pooh Bear Layout...

Just in case you missed it a few weeks ago...the very sweet Jenny from PaperCut Creations invited me to help her celebrate her birthday by contributing a guest designer post to her blog.  Since it was such a busy week last week and I am gearing up for a big week next week...I thought I would repost the layout here too.  
If you can believe it, I actually still have ONE more Pooh Bear layout to work on for our Disney trip...Pooh and Friends are big in my house.  We have watched the preview for the new movie coming out this summer...oh, about 100 times.  In fact - I think that will be the first movie that we take Nicole to see.  As per usual...there is a plethora of stitching.  I had doubts about the tree, but once I finished I loved the way it turned out, so I guess that's time well spent.  :)

I actually just got the pictures for this layout, plus about 100 other pictures this week.  I spent the better part of Monday afternoon adding pictures and journaling to my layouts and then putting them into my albums.  No matter how much I love a layout (or wish it was completely different) - pictures always make them beautiful.  I've even gotten over my nervousness around journaling...who cares if my penmanship isn't perfect - some day Nicole can look at it and know that I wrote it.  I don't think she'll care.

Speaking of guest designing...I am a guest designer on one of my FAVORITE blogs this Friday.  I am hovering in between super excited and super nervous.  I also got my Mother's present in the mail on Monday, but I haven't gotten a chance to play with it yet...I am hoping to get a chance to use it this afternoon.  Can't wait to share! 

Happy Wednesday!
