Frosted Designs, Sketchy Thursdays, and Pixie Dust Paperie!

I bought August's Pixie Dust Paperie kit.  It's my first Pixie kit but when I saw it at I just wanted it so badly.  So as it's the end of August now I thought it was about time I dug into it!  This layout is based on this weeks sketch over at Sketchy Thursdays and  it's also for Frosted Designs.  The challenge at Frosted Designs is to use something like a book page on your layout.  Well my BFF Theresa was at a flea market a few weeks back and bought me some old kids books, and this is a page from Sleeping Beauty.  The alphas in the title are from Making Memories but the rest is from the Pixie kit.
The pictures are of the kids sleeping in the car and the journaling reads, "After leaving the Mall of America, the kids immediately fell asleep in the car clutching to their new possessions."  I swear they were out by the time we left the parking structure.  We were in MN in June and the Mall of America's indoor theme park is a great way to spend a rainy day with the kids.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look!  And don't forget this months journaling block at Scrapbookers Anonymous!!!
