MME - The Sweetest Thing Collection Layout by Carolyn Lontin

These Are The Best Days Layout 

Created by Carolyn Lontin

Today I have my latest layout featuring MME's The Sweetest Thing Collection - I am so in love with these colors!!  They are not typical colors that I would use since I mostly scrap photos of my son, but these colors and patterns just work together so well that the layouts almost create themselves! :)

Here are the fantastic goodies that I received - you can find them HERE!

My layout was inspired from the MME Sticker that says " These Are The Best Days"

My journaling reads:
Good night milk - that's what we call it.  I love enjoying a warm mug of our good night milk on cold winter nights" (recipe on back)  Jan 13, 2011.

A little bit of a background - a few years ago my son was having a hard time sleeping and it took a toll on our family and we were at our wits end on how to get him to go to sleep.  Online I found this recipe for Mom's Warm Milk - I adjusted it a bit since I didn't think we needed that much sugar before bed.  Eventually my son started sleeping again but this had become our little night cap - looking back, yup these are the best days! :)

As always some fun detail shots 'cause everyone loves the embellishments:
