CTMH Little Dreamer for the Joyful Stars May 2017 Blog Hop

Welcome to my entry for the Joyful Stars May 2017 Blog Hop.  If you have found your way here from the blog of my very talented friend, Krista, you are on the right path.
You might have seen my previous post about my CTMH Little Dreamer "Shine" layout.  I designed it so that it could be a stand alone page, and I was going to put a photo of my daughter, Emma, in it.  Emma is going to dress up as Meghan Trainor for her famous person day at school. 
However, during her research time at school, Emma was being teased about her choice of Meghan Trainor.  Several of the boys in Emma's fourth grade class repeatedly told Emma she had made a poor choice because MT "only sings about being fat".  My poor girl was so upset when telling me what was going on in her classroom.  Obviously, these boys don't really know that to Emma (and me too) Meghan Trainor teaches girls important lessons about loving the person that you are.  Of course, we love the "Mom" song too!  We discussed that Emma should go with Meghan, a person that she admires and looks up to, regardless of what those boys say.  Focus on what makes you amazing and never apologize for it! 

The second page of my layout was born..."Always be Yourself"...great words to live by. 

Anyway, I have once again used the CTMH Little Dreamer Workshop Your Way Kit for this page.  I have also used the CTMH Artistry Cricut cartridge for the cloud cut outs.  I can't wait to go and take pictures to put in it.  I love that Emma had a hand in making the layout too!  That makes it even more special.

Thank you for stopping by to see me this month.  I hope that you are inspired to get creative after seeing all of the beautiful artwork featured in this month's hop. 
Please hop along to see what Nickie has in store at her blog, Live Scrap Love.

CTMH Little Dreamer Shine Scrapbooking Layout

Let me introduce you to CTMH Little Dreamer!  This paper suite has me dreaming about rainbows, unicorns and hearts...all of the things that I loved as a little girl.  I had my youngest daughter, Emma, helping me create this adorable one paged layout last night.  She loves to create right along side of me, and we spent the entire time listening to Meghan Trainor's song "Mom" on a loop.  I didn't know the song before last night, but I have it memorized now!  Emma is going to dress up as Meghan for her famous person day at school.  I think I will put a photo of her dressed up right in this Little Dreamer layout and explain this story in my journaling.
I personally used the CTMH Little Dreamer Workshop Your Way bundle shown below.  You could buy all of the pieces of the Little Dreamer suite individually, but you get a few extra sheets of colored cardstock in the bundle.  I also added a few pieces of cardstock to create my CMTH Artistry Cricut cartridge rainbow and clouds.  The rainbow was just one of over 700 images on that huge cartridge.
Here are some close up photos of the papers included in the CTMH Little Dreamer paper suite.  Do you see the cute cloud paper below?  That is the background of my layout.  I love this paper!
