Last year I took my sister and I took my nieces to The American Girl Store for the first time. They had been dreaming (and begging) to go to the "American Girl Doll Store" for quite some time, so when I came to town for a visit we knew it was time to make their wish come true! The girls were so excited that they could hardly hold still long enough for me to get a photo. In fact, the oldest is jumping up and down in this one!
To create this layout, I used a combination of papers and products from Bella Blvd. I also used my most recent FREE digital cut file called Entwined Hearts, which you can download and use for your own personal use. (Click on the words Entwined Hearts.) I also used this cut file on a recent layout entitled "Love This Moment".
