"Dance Party" Using Counterfeit Kit

I'm not gonna lie, I love how this one turned out!
I used items from my June Counterfeit Kit (see the whole kit here) and added some bubble wrap/paint stamping to the background.  ("Use Paint" is one of the challenges over at Counterfeit Kits.)  Here's a close-up of some of the deets:  
You probably can't read the journaling all that well, so I'll type it out for ya here:

"Girls, shhh, I'm gonna tell you a secret - your daddy can't dance!  But hey, what he lacks in coordination, he makes up for with enthusiasm, and that's what counts.  Let's just hope he doesn't try to bust a move at your weddings one day, we wouldn't want him to hurt himself!  - March 2, 2012"

I really wanted to enter a challenge at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge this month, seeing I missed last month.  Their challenge was to use this sketch:
and make a layout about a special dad in your life.  Well, I had recently taken these fun pics of Jason and the girls, and thought they'd be perfect.  The best thing about black & white photos is that you can use crazy colours like turquoise and orange and they don't clash at all!

And something funny I saw yesterday, thought I'd share with you.  Found this on pinterest and it is so much like how Nolan talks to Ailis (or everyone, really)!

It's that "theory of mind" thing that they say people with Asperger's lack.  They have trouble seeing anything from someone else's point of view.  Something we're constantly working on!  But it's kind of funny to watch it sometimes, too!  Well, speaking of Nolan, he's having a sick day today, poor guy.  I better go check on how he's doing.  Thanks for looking, and enjoy your Monday!
