Minnie Meltdown

Well here is the Minnie Mouse layout.  I posted this photo a couple of weeks ago.  I took it to the LSS last weekend to scrap it but nothing I brought with or found in the store was exactly what I wanted.  I wanted, a pink, purple, and black fall look... how hard is that really? :)  Within my own stash at home I found some white cardstock embossed with leaves, splattered some mist on it and then I used some leaf punches with some scrap paper.  I painted around the photo, added the button and bling all brilliant final touches suggested by Theresa.  The title idea actual came from my mom.

The story behind the photo is that Marin was just having a hard evening.  I picked her and her brother up from daycare and I had about 15 minutes to get them dressed in costumes to get them to the park for the photo shoot.  Well Marin was originally going to be Dora but at the house she had a small fit and didn't want to wear the Dora stuff.  Luckily, I have a chest full of costumes.  Theresa had bought her the Minnie Mouse costume for her birthday and the ears came from Disneyland last year.  She wasn't overly thrilled about this costume either but it was pink and I told her if she wore it, we'd go to Baskin Robbins after the pictures (yup that's the kind of mom I am).  Also when I was putting her socks on her she insisted on one pink sock and one purple sock.  So that's why I wanted to add some purple in the layout.  We did end up with some happy photos too.  The one below will go in her Halloween frame.  The one in the layout above will probably turn up at her H.S. graduation party, her wedding reception... who knows... :)
