Fingerpainting Fun!

I am very sad as I write this post... this is my last post as part of the The Greeting Farm's scrapbook design team. :(  This has been a great experience and I can't thank Marie and Jess enough for this awesome opportunity!!  I'm pretty sure this is the most scrapbook layouts I've done consecutively in a long time (TGF, my sisters thank you too- LOL) & I hope to keep it up!

This week's challenge is another FAB sketch from Jacilynn...

We let my nieces get messy a few weeks with some fingerpainting! It was Emi's first time... she wasn't really sure what to think of it- after she said EWWW! a few times she had some fun...
Fingerpainting LO

I wiped away Lolli Anya's lollipop and added some colored laquer to make it look like paint! And embellished with elements from the Sunshine Kit!
